The CV90 is a family of tracked combat vehicles first developed in the 1980s to cope with the extreme Nordic environments.
Built around Clavister's cOS core platform - the company's internally developed operating software - the firewall solution has been augmented based on NATO and BAE Systems requirements.
The ruggedised RSW-400 is a newly designed solution and will boost the resilience of the on-board network infrastructure relied upon by the crew to manage the vehicle's many systems - such as weapons, cameras, battle command systems and engine control.
"This deal represents the biggest in Clavister's history and we are very proud to be working alongside BAE Systems Hägglunds to provide next generation combat vehicle defences,' said John Vestberg, Clavister's CEO.".
"Protecting military personnel has evolved so much further beyond simply adding thicker armour around combat vehicles and we are dedicated to helping defence organizations to better prepare nations for cyberwarfare through specially developed solutions."
The solutions are being developed in line with a framework agreement between Clavister and BAE Systems Hägglunds which has been in place since June 2020.
