The community of Lviv IT Cluster expanded the Victory Projects initiative and launched a new project named Guardian. Its goal is to enhance the training level of border guards.
The military personnel of the State Border Guard Service are the first to encounter the enemy, ensuring the timely arrival of international military and humanitarian aid while supporting the efforts of volunteers. Therefore, border guards must be versatile experts capable of engaging in various types of combat, practicing on ground, naval, and aerial targets using different weapons to counter the occupiers.
Lviv IT Cluster and its partners have taken on the responsibility to improve working conditions for personnel, accelerate information processing, and enhance the Western Regional Management of the State Border Guard Service, aiming to create a more efficient and effective system.
“One of the main goals of the Guardian project is to support the State Border Guard Service in establishing a training center for mobilized personnel, equipped with all the necessary specialized equipment, with the aim of ensuring comfortable and effective training for new soldiers,” says Stepan Veselovskyi, CEO of Lviv IT Cluster.
As part of the initiative, on May 18, Lviv IT Cluster delivered the initial batch of assistance to the border guards, comprising 5 3D printers and 5 Starlink terminals.
“We are grateful for the Lviv IT Cluster’s assistance as these items are crucial for training personnel deployed in the combat zone. Specifically, we utilize 3D printers to manufacture parts for our grenade launchers, enabling us to rapidly restore weapons for training purposes. Additionally, we intend to utilize the printers to create educational mines, which will be donated to educational institutions. It is vital for everyone to comprehend the hazards of mines and distinguish what can and cannot be touched. This knowledge will contribute to saving lives,” says Colonel Petro Zhovnych, representative of the State Border Guard Service.
Furthermore, with the support of the Lviv IT Cluster community, the border guards have plans to create their own VR simulator, enabling service members to practice shooting with grenade launchers in various conditions.
Lviv IT Cluster launched the Victory Projects initiative in March 2022, in response to the full-scale invasion. The initiative aims to support businesses, military, critical and civil infrastructure, and strengthen the region’s security.
