For close to two decades, Lacroix has invested itself in developing and providing technical solutions, delivering the most realistic and effective training for troop readiness.
Though various means of training are available (3D shooting ranges, combat training centers, etc.), we consider that the most effective means combines the aspects of the environment (realism, stress,etc.) with a replication of realistic effects (direct and indirect fire, IEDs, masking, smokes, impact, gun fire signature, firing bursts), utilizing pyrotechnics in a battlefield scenario.
Lacroix is one of the long-standing providers of training solutions to the French Armed Forces - our devices are used in:
Combat Training Center (Mounted or standalone on vehicles, buildings, etc or stand alone)
Urban Area (MOUT)
Our R&D engineers have recently developed a new range of reliable products to provide a real live training and mobility system: SPYTFIRE.
SPYTFIRE BATTLEFIELD TRAINING SYSTEMS (LBTS)
With 40th years of experience inchaff & flares and almost 20 in battlefield simulation, our NEW offer, SPYTFIRE, is a new generation of multiple throwers (20 hits) and individual (two hits). Each system is extremely light, portable and can be fixed anywhere- ground, buildings, outdoor, indoor - or transported in any kind of vehicle
