The Mission Preparation system, allowing collaborative work to ease and speed-up the tactical decision making process for training, mission preparation and conduct of operation, is a technical innovation thanks to its 3 new smart features. This Digital Sand Box is innovative in three ways :

First innovation: the incorporation of Masa SWORD constructive simulation software into the Digital Sand Box (FINDMP®) for both purposes: tactical training and prepared mission assessment. 


Second innovation: the connection of the Digital Sand Box to a Battle Management System in order to transfer the order of battle to the BMS (save time and avoid errors) and to keep the pace of maneuver


Third innovation: the Immersive Building Reconstruction Tool (ORBI) developed by Nexter Training which helps Special Armed Forces or Special Security Forces to better prepare their intervention. ORBI contains a software tool to virtually reconstruct, in few minutes and in 3D, the inner part of building or a room from 2D information as photos or drawings. Orbi then displays this 3D view through Virtual Reality googles and allows the operator to move inside. 


Nexter takes part in the inauguration of the new Draguignan Artillery museum

logoMusee de lartillerie 2After several months of refurbishment and modernization work, the new Draguignan Artillery museum was inaugurated on the occasion of the Wagram commemorations on Wednesday July 3, in particular in the presence of General Ract-Madoux, Chief of Staff of the French Army, and Olivier Audibert-Troin, member of parliament for the Var department and a member of the French National Assembly’s Defense Commission. As a long-standing partner of the museum and the leading player in the artillery sector, the Nexter Group was also represented by its President, Philippe Burtin, and General Jacques Grenier, the Group’s military consultant.

Following the extension of the site from 1,800m2 to more than 2,500m2, and with a reworked museography, the new museum will be able to exhibit a larger and better presented collection. Access has also been improved, in particular for visitors suffering from reduced mobility. The museum can now be accessed directly from the Avenue de la Grande Armée along a 100m-long walkway.

This support confirms Nexter’s commitment to the French artillery community and its historical heritage, and to the land-based army in general.
