Road Wheels

Van Halteren is one of the leading suppliers of Road Wheels in the world. Ever since the start of this business in 1973, they have supplied a variety of wheels to many countries. Today Van Halteren is the knowledge partner for several Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) when it comes to Road Wheels. Van Halteren has designed, tested and delivered the Road Wheels for a number of newly introduced tracked vehicles.

For operational vehicles including CV90, M113 and Leopard II, Van Halteren has developed improved Road Wheels. Tracked vehicles tend to increase the payload. They have proven concepts of lighter applications for a higher payload. The company's vast experience, materials knowhow and hands-on mentality are the driving forces of these innovations. Their current delivery program consist of Road Wheels for self propelled howitzers, infantry fighting vehicles, main battle tanks, recovery vehicles and others. Van Halteren has partnerships with rubberizing companies in different countries.

Van Halteren also has vast experience in refurbishing many kinds of Road Wheels in order to extend the product life time and decrease the vehicle life cycle costs. This Refurbishment is cost efficient for the users and has no effect on operational capability.

MORSIM - Training Simulator

Van Halteren has developed a mortar trainer in close cooperation with the Dutch Armed Forces. The challenge of modern training is how to train the units to the highest proficiency while expending the least amount of resources. Live firing training is expensive, dangerous, hazardous to the environment and most important, not done enough to achieve the desired skill level. Based on these assumptions and the experience gained from artillery training, Van Halteren has developed the concept of the MORSIM.

The MORSIM is a simulator for Mortar Crews which enables realistic training in a safe environment and against favorable economic conditions.The MORSIM prototype has been developed in close cooperation with the Dutch Armed Forces.

Howitzer Crew Trainers

Van Halteren is the leading supplier of training systems for Howitzer Crews in the world, having delivered training systems to more than 12 international customers. The first simulators were developed in 1990 in close cooperation with the Dutch Armed Forces. Ever since, Van Halteren has invested heavily in the further development of the systems, based on feedback from our growing customer base. Today the company is able to supply state-of-the-art training systems for Artillery which provide true value to their users.

Van Halteren's Howitzer Crew Trainers (HCTs) bridge the gap between classroom training and live firing training. The challenge of modern Artillery Training is how to train the units to the highest proficiency while expending the least amount of resources. Live firing training is expensive, dangerous, hazardous to the environment and most important, not done enough to achieve the desired skill level.

The company's HCTs realistically simulate live fire situations for gun crews and battery level fire missions and make it possible to train for every possible scenario before even one live round has been fired. These scenarios include gun drills, misfire drills, burst-rate firing, battery drills, shoot and scoot, etc. By the time the crew is ready to fire their first live round, they are already fully qualified. Using an HCT results in reduced training time, but increased skill levels for individuals and crews. Training costs, however, are considerably lower (75% or more) than live fire training. Van Halteren's systems are field proven for Towed Howitzers and Self Propelled Howitzers.
