MilDef Systems has been awarded a contract to supply a monitoring and tracking system to the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV).

The system will include Track24 Defence's situational command and control (SCC) TITAN, supplemented with sensors from MilDef, for use on cargo and logistic units at FMV Sweden.

It is expected to enable the FMV to monitor and track units worldwide, regardless of access to local infrastructure.

"The system opens up new possibilities to manage the positioning and status monitoring of all kinds of cargo and logistic transport."

MilDef Systems managing director Johan Pakarinen said: "We are very pleased that FMV has selected MilDef Systems as a supplier.

"The system opens up new possibilities to manage the positioning and status monitoring of all kinds of cargo and logistic transport, regardless of where they are globally."

The SCC TITAN is designed to provide military commanders with a web-based application for full-blue force tracking capability, including situational awareness, operational command and control, emergency response and the ability to provide comprehensive post-operation debriefing.

It offers upgraded features such as red-force contact, machine-to-machine signalling and a communications platform engineered to support and integrate battlefield VHF / UHF / HF radio with the incumbent AES256-encrypted satellite communications network.

In addition, the system can simultaneously handle personnel and vehicle monitoring and so-called friendly force tracking, and supports two-way encrypted messaging and true situational awareness of all assets while on the move.

Deliveries are scheduled to start later this year.
