OSLO, Norway, 21 April 2010. The Swedish Defense Material Administration (FMV) awarded Thales Norway a contract to supply the Swedish armed forces with a new command and control (C2) system for military helicopters.
According to the contract, Thales will be responsible for system design, integration and supply of C2 systems for helicopter units within the Swedish armed forces (SwAF). 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 will supply a flexible C2 system based upon the general architecture of all C2 systems in the armed forces.
