Extended framework agreement with FMV
Micropol strengthens its position in passive fiber optics by the extended framework agreement with The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration, FMV. A cooperation that goes back 30 years and continues on.
When the Swedish Armed Forces enter critical and hostile situations on land, sea or air, it is Micropol’s fiber optic technology that keeps systems connected. The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration, FMV introduced fiber optics to the Swedish Armed Forces in the early 1980’s. Since then Micropol has partnered with FMV in developing passive fiber optic components for extreme environments. Their non-standard and demanding specifications include testing the components for sub-water functionality, as well as battle tank weight exposure.Much of Micropol’s advanced technology that is available for the civil market has its origin from products developed for the Swedish Armed Forces.
Micropol Fiberoptic has signed a contract with BAE Systems Hägglunds for the delivery of field tactical fiber optic communication systems. The contract order is significant and includes deliveries until 2028.
This year marks the 35th anniversary of Micropol Fiberoptic. The journey started in Anders Andersson garage in the village of Åled on the Swedish West Coast in 1988.
