Elbit Systems Sweden has been awarded a 10-year contract worth approximately US$170 million to become the integration partner for LSS Mark, the Swedish Army’s digitalisation programme, which has been attempting modernise the country’s ground command-and-control (C2) systems.

As integration partner, the work will take place at Elbit Systems Sweden's facilities from where it will lead the roll out of the programme to integrate, install, maintain and upgrade C2 systems across command posts, vehicles and dismounted systems.

Tobias Wennberg, general manager of Elbit Systems Sweden AB, described the contract win as ‘a significant achievement for the company, while Haim Delmar, general manager of Elbit System C4I and Cyber, noted that the company was committed to expanding its domestic capabilities in Sweden.
