The Defence Ministry of the Russian Federation has contracted with the Düsseldorf-based Rheinmetall Group and its Russian partner JSCo Oboronservis to build a major army training centre in Mulino, Russia. Located in the Volga region, by 2014 this simulation-supported training centre – the most advanced system of its kind worldwide – will be able to train 30,000 troops a year. For Rheinmetall the order is worth well over €100 million including further options.

This contract has special strategic significance for the Rheinmetall Group, representing the German defence industry’s first significant foothold in the Russian market. In light of plans to modernize the equipment of the Russian armed forces, the opportunities for follow-on orders from the Russian Federation are considerable.

Rheinmetall is one of the world’s leading suppliers and operators of simulation and training systems for ground, air and naval applications.

The Group already operates the Bundeswehr’s Gefechtsübungszentrum Heer, or GÜZ, a high-tech army training centre located in the Altmark in central Germany, on which the new facility in Russia will be modelled. A further customer from the Middle East placed an order with Rheinmetall for a comparable facility in 2009.

To execute this project, Rheinmetall has entered into a strategic partnership with JSCo Oboronservis, the Russian company that will serve as general contractor and subsequently operate the facility on behalf of the Russian armed forces.

Simulation-supported training is not only a realistic and efficient means of preparing troops for a variety of operational scenarios, but also keeps cost in check by reducing consumption of fuel and materiel as well as protecting heavy equipment from wear and tear. The Russian military expects the new training centre to pay for itself within the space of a few years.

Rheinmetall is tasked with developing and supplying the live combat simulation system as well as technical implementation of all aspects of the project, including commissioning and quality assurance.

Measuring over 500 square kilometres, the state-of-the-art Russian army training centre in Mulino is designed to train a reinforced mechanized infantry or armoured brigade. An innovative rotation principle will enable training to take place simultaneously at a variety of stations, with the training system tracking and recording the activities of each participant via an electronic identification badge, helping to assure successful results throughout a training process lasting several weeks.

Preceding the rotation principle, which will be employed in Mulino for the first time, will be an introductory qualification phase involving practical and theoretical objectives whereby the theoretical level of qualification presented in the form of CBT modules. Participants will not be allowed to proceed until they meet this basic qualification, after which they move on to other training stations, including live combat simulation, commander training by state-of-the-art constructive simulation, marksmanship with modern firing ranges as well as other practical training components. Another new feature is the networking of Live, Virtual and Constructive simulation elements in an LVC system which promises to set a new standard in military training. 

During live combat simulation, formations and units will soon be able to train for military operations using laser simulators and cutting edge communications technology mounted onto their original equipment and tactical vehicles, which will be able to range at will in a approximately 200-square-kilometre zone. Live fire will be simulated by eye-safe laser simulators for all weapons, ranging from small arms and light antitank weapons to tank guns, artillery, IFV-mounted automatic cannon, etc..

Following the training programme, which lasts several weeks, every brigade that passes through Mulino will have attained a comparable, certified level of proficiency. This takes into account the Russian military’s aim of ensuring that every brigade is optimally prepared for the realities of modern warfare.

Realistic simulation thanks to innovative technology

Continuously perfected by Rheinmetall engineers, the sophisticated training technology installed at the GÜZ combat training centre in Letzlingen, Germany, has proved invaluable to the Bundeswehr ever since operations began in 2001.

During live training operations, every participant in an exercise, from individual soldiers to main battle tanks is equipped from the start with laser sensors and compact data transmission devices.

These wireless devices feature a GPS satellite receiver and constantly transmit information concerning the position and status of every participant to the exercise control cell. When training for military operations in urban terrain (MOUT), special sensors track the position of soldiers even when they are inside buildings. The effects of heavy weapons fire on buildings and the troops inside them can also be simulated. Moreover, mobile video teams accompany the participating units, transmitting imagery back to headquarters in real time. There, the complete array of data from an exercise flows together, including all voice transmissions. The position and status of all exercise participants are depicted on workstation computer monitors and large screens on a 2D/3D situation map, including video recording in real time.

All events taking place during major exercises are electronically recorded and processed for subsequent after-action review (they can be presented to exercise participants in a fixed-position auditorium or in mobile facilities in the major training area).

Simulation technology from Rheinmetall thus makes a decisive contribution to well-grounded, deployment-oriented training, providing troops with the best-possible preparation for carrying out their missions, a critical factor in assuring adequate force protection and favourable outcomes.

By Van Oanh - The Saigon Times Daily

HANOI – Vietnam ranked fifth among 10 nations worldwide most at risk from information insecurity in 2010, according to the Vietnam Information Security Association (Visa).

Over 30% of Vietnamese businesses reported network security problems, while around 30% admitted they didn’t feel safe with their current network systems.

Visa also said, at the national seminar on information security in Hanoi last week, that 20% of businesses couldn’t identify a motivation behind the cyber attacks.

Nguyen Viet The, head of the IT Department under the Ministry of Public Security, said information insecurity increased last year. The said the .vn domain is third-highest for vulnerability to hacker attacks, while nearly 60 million computers were attacked by viruses last year.

Last year an online newspaper suffered DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks several times.

Meanwhile, many websites of organizations and businesses have admitted serious shortcomings in information protection.

The pointed out that poor management was the root cause of most problems. Most websites appear to ignore warnings from national information security agencies, while many people still use unauthorized software.

As of February this year, Vietnam had 27 million Internet users, or 32% of the population. There were nearly 192,000 websites using the .vn domain and many businesses had adopted an online payment system into their business.

Ngày 20/3, người dân ở thôn Cầu, xã Lạc Đạo, Văn Lâm, tỉnh Hưng Yên đau xót và bức xúc trước cái chết oan uổng của bà Nguyễn Thị Phải 76 tuổi. Người dân cho rằng, đường dây điện đã xuống cấp nghiêm trọng là thủ phạm chính gây ra cái chết của bà Phải.

Theo bà con thôn Cầu, vụ tai nạn thương tâm xảy ra vào tối 19/3, khi bà Phải đi rửa rau trên bờ mương gần nhà; có thể do trời tối, bà Phải đã chạm đường dây điện hạ thế bị đứt, gây giật điện, làm bà chết tại chỗ.

Tại hiện trường, đoạn dây điện sinh hoạt dẫn vào nhà các hộ dân vẫn lơ lửng bên xác nạn nhân trên bờ mương.

Được biết, xã Lạc Đạo đã bàn giao lưới điện cho Điện lực Văn Lâm quản lý từ đầu năm 2010. Song, từ nhiều năm nay, hệ thống lưới điện hạ thế ở thôn Cầu xuống cấp nghiêm trọng, các cột điện đều han gỉ, mạng lưới dây điện cũ nát và liên tục xảy ra tình trạng chập cháy trên cột điện.

Mặc dù người dân đã nhiều lần kiến nghị với chính quyền địa phương, ngành điện, cảnh báo tình trạng nguy hiểm của lưới điện đe dọa cuộc sống của hàng trăm con người, song đã qua nhiều năm nhưng chưa có chuyển biến.

Sau khi lưới điện được bàn giao cho Điện lực Văn Lâm từ một năm qua nhưng tình trạng trên vẫn chưa được khắc phục. Theo chính quyền địa phương, trách nhiệm đó là của ngành điện. Khi xảy ra cái chết oan uổng của bà Nguyễn Thị Phải, chính quyền địa phương xã Lạc Đạo và Điện lực Văn Lâm mới vội vã đến hiện trường để điều tra và xác minh.

Công an huyện Văn Lâm và các cơ quan chức năng đang tiếp tục điều tra làm rõ vụ việc./.
