Swedish defense company Saab says it has received a new contract to continue support and service of a simulator system used by the British Army.

The simulator is the Direct Fire Weapon Effects Simulator System.

The DFWES is a laser-based tactical engagement system for vehicles and anti-tank weapons to simulate the effect of weapon engagements that enables realistic and challenging training. It is used in force-on-force exercises in Britain and Canada, as well as in Germany.

Saab has supplied and operationally supported the system since 1994, the company said.

"This new contract, extending the use of the capability, is proof of the strong relationship between Saab and the British Army, and a renewal of our commitment as a highly trusted overall training provider to a leading military customer," said Henrik Hojer, vice president and managing director of Saab's training and simulation business.

The contract from Britain's Ministry of Defense is worth about $33.8 million. The performance period of the contract was not disclosed.
