Saab Aerotech is developing a resource management system for forward based units, which is to be used by Nordic Battlegroup 2008. The system will be delivered during the latter part of 2007 and the order comes from the Swedish Defence Materiel (FMW).
The resource management system (RSF) is computer based and supports the logistical functions, technical services and requirement supply of services that support advanced, response and resource management in Sweden’s expeditionary units.
”It is an important deal for Saab and makes a long-term and industrial commitment possible regarding logistical functions, enabling integration in future management systems”, says Joachim Haux, Business Development and Marketing Manager, Electronic Systems Services, Saab Aerotech.
Using RSF, trained personnel will be able to search, order, stock report and analyse consumption of supplies and reserve materiel, as well as carrying out and participating in fault and status reporting of individual equipment, operational planning, maintenance history and reporting to external unit command and resource management systems.
Together with sub-contractor Sjöland&Thyselius, Saab Aerotech will supply RSF in September/October 2007 with the intention that the Swedish Armed forces will use the system in Nordic Battlegroup 2008.
”For us at Sjöland & Thyselius, this is an important order as we have worked with similar systems for the armed forces for many years and it strengthens the bond between us and Saab”, says Erik Eklöf CEO for Sjöland & Thyselius Systemteknik.
