For more than 30 years, Svekon have supported the national defence industry, the swedish defence materiel administration and the Swedish Armed Forces with technical support and equipment deliveries to ground forces and air defence units
The Ground Arena includes all the vehicles and systems that the Swedish Armed Forces use on land, such as trucks, combat vehicles, “soft skin” and armoured all-terrain vehicles (tracked and wheeled), but also air defence systems, health care and weapons systems. This equipment is widely used in the international efforts that Sweden is involved in, which puts high demands on reliability, availability, and functionality.
SUPPORT THROUGHOUT THE LIFE CYCLE OF A PRODUCT
Throughout a product’s life cycle, missions may include technical support, such as status survey, requirement specifications and standards authority for acquisitions, delivery, refurbishment and ultimately decommissioning.
COMPETENT TEAMS AND RESOURCES
With our skilled teams, we can for example carry out studies, develop prototypes, modify, deliver and assemble the equipment for military vehicles with respect to role-specific fittings, weapons supplies and medical equipment. We have employees with a background from the Swedish Armed Forces and the Swedish Defence Material Administration who have solid expertise in military technology and extensive experience with public requests for quotation and procurements. The Swedish Defence Material Administration, who constitutes the contracting authority for defence, often has special and complex requirements in their procurement documents. After many years’ experience of working with the Swedish Defence Material Administration and the Swedish National Defence industry, we know how to respond to these requests for information and requests for quotation which gives us a great advantage when it comes to procurements in general.
Design modification missions for the Defence often involve redesign or additional design during half time refurbishment or life time extensions of systems. The objective is based on a very clear functional requirement, for example to produce a complete functional interior for one of the vehicles in international deployment. The installation must be user friendly, efficient, secure and robust. We develop a specification of what the system will accomplish, manufacture, test and deliver before compiling a complete technical file for the system. We validate and verify consistency according to set requirements.
