SwAF buys Thales’s C2 system

The Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) has awarded Thales Norway a contract to supply the Swedish Armed Forces with a new command-and-control (C2) system for helicopter units.

Thales will be responsible for system design, integration and supply of C2 systems for helicopter units within the Swedish Armed Forces (SwAF).

The system is expected to 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 will supply a flexible C2 system based upon the general architecture of all C2 systems in the armed forces.
