For more than 30 years, Svekon has supported the Swedish national defence industry, the Swedish defence materiel administration and armed forces with technical support and equipment deliveries in the field of air arena.
The Air Arena covers all of the aircrafts which are used by the defence for various tasks such as hunting, attacks, signal intelligence, troop transport, search and rescue, medical evacuation, and anti-submarine warfare. The armed forces’ aircrafts are used for practice as well as for carrying out attack assignments and gathering intelligence.
With our skilled teams we can, for example, carry out studies, develop prototypes, modify, deliver and assemble the equipment for military aircrafts with respect to role-specific fittings, weapons supplies and medical equipment.
Experience from public procurements is a great help. FMV, who are the contracting authority for defence, often list specific and complex requirements in their procurement documents. After many years’ experience of working with the FMV and the Swedish Defence industry, we know how to respond to these requests, which gives us a great advantage when it comes to procurements.
Construction missions for FMV and the Defence industry often involve reconstructions or additional constructions of various types. The mission is based on a very clear functional requirement, for example to develop a brand new integration of armament for one of the defence helicopters, an installation which must remain fully operational even if the helicopter is flying under highly demanding conditions. We make a specification of what the system will accomplish, subsequently manufacture, test and deliver before compiling a complete technical file for the system. We validate and verify consistency according to set requirements.
