On 30 November, the representatives of the CTU in Prague and the Czech subsidiary of the Swedish armaments company BAE Systems have signed a memorandum of cooperation on the cybernetic protection of infantry combat vehicles. Collaboration is supposed to contribute to the development of vehicle technologies. BAE Systems is one of the four companies to address the Department of Defense for a contract for 210 tracked combat vehicles for about 53 billion crowns.

The first step of the cooperation will be to develop a study on the vulnerability of electronic systems of existing vehicles. "Gradually, technology will be developed to make vehicles work better, safer and create a stronger system for defense and security," said CTU Rector doc. Vojtěch Petráček.

BAE Systems manufactures the CV90 vehicle, equipped by armies of seven European countries - Finland, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Estonia, and the rest of Scandinavian countries. Spanish General Dynamics European Land Systems, which has already supplied the Czech army with the Pandur wheeled transports, offers the Ascod and the German Rheinmetall Landsysteme offers the Lynx KF31. The German consortium PSM, the joint venture of Krauss-Maffei Wegmann and Rheinmetall Landsysteme, offers the Puma combat vehicle.     Photo:  Def Sec Innovation Hub z.ú.
