The Swedish Armed Forces has contracted UK company Marshall for the provision of a suite of command-and-control (C2) shelters for GBP100 million (USD127.1 million).

Under the contract, the company will be required to deliver up to 500 C2 shelters as well as a range of ancillary equipment, including power units, battery boxes, and mast trailers, along with modular workspaces, the company announced on 22 May.

Deliveries will take place over the next four years, with an option to extend for a further three thereafter.

As part of the contract, Marshall will adapt its standardised 20 ft base container into 16 different C2 shelter variants featuring a combination of equipment, modules, and specifications for roles such as command, communications, mast operation, technical, and network support.

Electromagnetic shielding will be standard across the C2 suite, with most variants featuring HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) and CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear) filtration systems. Ballistic protection is also being provided for one of the variants.

Marshall specialises in providing mission support for defence. One of its offerings is a base container platform, which can be configured to suit a variety of mission needs, including medical, ammunition and hazard storage, and C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance). Each system can be mounted on a vehicle.

In the C4ISR role, the containers can be configured as an operations, combined, or electronics equipment command centre as well as an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) and counter-UAS hub.
