The CMS & Publishing Tools we apply, is by far the most popular software with over 60% worldwide market share. This means the software is used by almost 35% of all the public websites online, the rest is used for intranet solutions not publicly available. The system is also used by many popular global brands across the world.

The Swedish Armed Forces (FM) are evolving to ensure that balance is maintained against changed threat levels. The target image is an intervention defence that can act quickly, coordinated and flexibly, nationally as well as internationally.

More than fifteen (15) years of experience within the Aerospace-, Defence- and Security Industry, working within some of the largest, most technically advanced and complex defence material procurement projects for the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) and the Swedish Armed Forces (FM), delivering Systems LifeCycle Management (SLCM) Services, have shaped us. We have successfully executed projects and can refer to many renowned projects that have achieved their ambitious goals by using standardized methods and tools.

We are project managers, analysts, consultants, advisors, architects, modellers, and many more – and sometimes just catalysts for the successful achievement of your goals!

All this experience and knowledge, built up almost during a lifetime, made us believe in our capability to be able contribute to the development of our total defence, by providing Systems LifeCycle Management (SLCM) Services.

Systems LifeCycle Management (SLCM) Services for the Information- and Communications Technology Industry

We deliver secure, immediate and effective interaction between organizations, companies and their customers, partners and employees.

Through a combination of our generic Systems LifeCycle Management (SLCM) Services and the specific Information- and Communications Technology Industry related services, we focus on creating a complete and comprehensive services portfolio for a cost-effective internet, extranet and / or intranet presence with total commitment from our agency, for our clients.

Information- and Communications Technology Industry Services

We have actively participated and delivered a multitude of qualified services, in one of the most demanding CBRN projects in modern time.

A very strong focus on Programme Management, Project Management, Configuration Management, Quality Management & Assurance including all the standard disciplines within the processes referred to in the ISO/IEC 15288:2015 (ISO/IEC-15288) standard, has been vital in the early requirements assessment, design, production, testing, verification & validation including training, delivery and hand over to the Swedish Armed Forces.

ISO/IEC-15288 is the standard for systems and software engineering lifecycle management processes. It establishes a common framework for describing the lifecycle of systems created by humans and defines a set of processes and associated terminology within that framework. These processes can be applied at any level in the hierarchy of practically any system’s structure. Selected sets of these processes can be applied throughout the life cycle for managing and performing the stages of a system’s life cycle. This is accomplished through the involvement of all interested parties, with the ultimate goal of achieving customer satisfaction.

ISO/IEC-15288 also provides processes that support the definition, control and improvement of life cycle processes used within an organization or project. Organizations and projects can use these life cycle processes when acquiring and supplying systems.

In our LifeCycle Management Services offering, Quality Assurance is cutting across all service disciplines. We would like to mention three projects in particular within the Aerospace, Defence & Security industry, the procurement of the CBRN Reconnaissance Vehicle, the deployable Mobile CBRN Analytical Laboratories and the Automatic CBRN Warning- and Reporting System. These CBRN projects were the most prioritized CBRN projects to date for the Swedish Armed Forces, where a very strong focus was set on Security, Integration, Quality Management and Quality Assurance throughout the whole project LifeCycles.

Below a few pictures showing the end result of the CBRN Reconnaissance Vehicle and the deployable Mobile CBRN Analytical Laboratories.

Below some internal and external pictures of the CBRN Reconnaissance Vehicles.

For the deployable Mobile CBRN Analytical Laboratories it was vital to ensure the highest quality from Vision, Preparations, Design, Evaluation, Production, Testing over Verification & Validation and development of Laboratory Methods to Final Delivery and Hand-Over of the deployable Mobile CBRN Analytical Laboratories to the Swedish Armed Forces (SwAF).

Below a few pictures showing the end result of the deployable Mobile CBRN Analytical Laboratories.

The laboratories are based on a 20-foot, ISO 668 compliant, container platform. Each container is equipped with basic units and laboratory instruments for two users. The container platform is a welded aluminium design built from sandwich panels (aluminium sheets with insulation material). To protect computers and laboratory equipment, the container and its doors are designed to provide electromagnetic pulse (EMP) shielding.

The laboratory can be transported on any vehicle with a lock for a 20-foot container or on an appropriately adapted RoRo trailer. Laboratories can be lifted using forklift trucks or cranes with the purpose-specific lifting equipment.

Our personnel delivered System LifeCycle Management (SLCM) Services within several disciplines, i.e. technical-, commercial- and administrative areas, and were also engaged as project administrator and secretary of international meetings performed at the contractors sites, mainly in Germany.

The company Rheinmetall Landsysteme GmbH, based upon a requirement specification developed by the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV), has successfully designed, manufactured and delivered a Deployable CBRN Field Analytical Laboratory to the Swedish Armed Forces. The system is in use within the National CBRN Defence Centre (Totalförsvarets skyddscentrum, SkyddC), Umeå in Sweden, since 2006.

Below some more pictures of the individual B-, C- and RN-Laboratories, showing the end result of the interior of the Deployable Mobile CBRN Analytical Laboratories.
