FMV is a civil government agency with the task of boosting the overall capability of the total defence organisation. The aim is to be a defence-equipment supply agency that is skilled and is in demand, including in an international perspective. A business-like approach, know-how in system development and a high level of cooperation capability are characteristic features of FMV.
Developments taking place in the total defence system presents many great, complex and exciting opportunities. Military defence has to be developed to operate in a network-based way and in collaboration with international forces, while civilian defence has to cope with severe and unforeseen strains on society. As an independent, civil authority, FMV contributes both knowledge and a high level of expertise in many different areas.
