Network security solution provider Clavister has won a Proof of Concept (PoC) contract from the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) for a cyber security technology.  

As part of the contract, the company will deliver a specialised technology to help military organisations trace specific issues in satellite communications.

The contract was awarded following the company’s participation in a contest ‘TechDay’, hosted by FMV.

Clavister Defence Solutions head Stefan Brodin said: “We are proud to have been awarded this contract and to have been chosen as the most innovative solution provider among a group of hugely impressive businesses.

“This win underlines the strength of our capabilities across industries and is a specific signal of intent for the applications of our AI (artificial intelligence) technologies to the space sector.”

Clavister’s advanced technology won the contest in the latest edition of FMV’s military innovation programme that was based on space technology.  

The military innovation initiative seeks to tap into new technologies that can strengthen the capabilities of the armed forces.

Clavister CTO Nils Undén said: “There has never been a more important time to ensure our core communications networks are secured from disruption and malicious attacks.

“Nowhere is that more crucial than in the military and its satellite systems, and we look forward to collaborating with the FMV on an ongoing basis to ensure that work is done to the highest standard.”

Clavister has previously delivered cyber security solutions to secure platforms and equipment in the defence sector.

The company has also collaborated with defence contractor BAE Systems to provide protection for Nato-compliant combat vehicles.
