Category: Future Technologies


Kreuzlingen -- the Kreuzlingen based technology enterprise MOWAG GmbH received an order from armasuisse for the production of eight PIRANHA IIIC 8x8 vehicles as platforms for the Integrated Radio Surveillance and Transmitter System. The vehicles will be produced in Kreuzlingen and delivered to armasuisse by the end of 2007.

Information and communication are absolutely essential for both military and civilian command. The increasing mobility, flexibility and the modern communications technology demand an infrastructure which provides on time reliable information. With the EWVs it is possible to intercept wireless communications, to locate and, where necessary, to influence such communications. The EWVs can be applied in cooperation with the subsidiary support of civilian authorities, with the airspace security and defence operations, as well as for peace-keeping missions. Within the scope of the Defence Procurement Program 2005, parliament approved the procurement of eight state-of-the-art Electronic Warfare Vehicles on the basis of the worldwide successful MOWAG PIRANHA IIIC 8x8. The selection of the PIRANHA IIIC as platform for this system is further proof of the close partnership with the Swiss Army as well as its trust in the reliability of the PIRANHA. It is further to be said that currently more than 850 vehicles of the PIRANHA family in numerous configurations are in service with the Swiss Army. In addition to the development, production and delivery of this new Electronic Warfare Vehicle, including the logistic support, MOWAG will also be responsible for the critical additional role of system integrator.
