ÅF awarded high-tech systems order by FMV
The ÅF Group has been awarded an extensive contract by the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) in conjunction with the development of a tele-operated weapons system. The order is worth approximately SEK 10 million.
It is the intention that the tele-operated system, installed in, for example, armoured all-terrain vehicles, will form part of the standard equipment for Swedish led rapid response teams deployed on assignments outside Sweden.
Development work will be carried out using an integrated project team with expertise from, in the first instance, FMV, the Swedish Armed Forces, the ÅF Group, Ericsson Microwave Systems, the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) and AerotechTelub.
ÅF's involvement includes integration support, project follow-up work, error management, configuration management, verification and validation, IT systems security, function installation, CAD work, EMC testing, documentation, materiel registration, components lists and the planning of regular care and maintenance work.
ÅF has repeatedly been chosen by FMV for collaboration across a broad spectrum of services for many years.
