The Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) has awarded Thales Norway a contract to supply the Swedish Armed Forces (SwAF) with a new Command and Control (C2) system for helicopter units. Thales will supply a flexible C2 system based upon the general architecture of all C2 systems in the armed forces.

In accordance with the contract, Thales will be responsible for system design, integration and supply of these C2 systems. The system will provide improved command and control capability for helicopter units when deployed in national or international operations. It will be an integrated part of the Armed Forces overall C2 systems, and will be interoperable with existing mobile C2 systems within the Air Force and Nordic Battle Group.

Thales is a trusted partner of the Swedish Armed Forces. As Glenn Pedersen, Managing Director of Thales Norway, explained, "We are extremely proud of the trust we have been given by the FMV. This contract award recognizes Thales’s technological excellence and expertise in modern C2 systems and confirms Thales’s strong presence as a systems integrator in the Swedish market.”
