The framework agreement refers to the company’s software Exonaut and related software services. The agreement supplements previous maintenance agreements of SEK 79 million that were signed in December 2022.
“4C Strategies is proud to continue our support to the Swedish Armed Forces capability development,” said Mikael Grape, Managing Director – 4C Nordic. “It’s particularly relevant given the Russian invasion of Ukraine and Sweden’s NATO ascension. In these turbulent times, Sweden’s increased ambition within the total defence area will be a key driver moving forward and 4C actively contributes to this important work,” he added.
Exonaut was initially developed as a military training management tool for the Swedish Armed Forces. Since 2001 they have been instrumental in its development, using the software to manage and enhance the delivery of their training and exercise activities. Most recently, they signed a three-year extension agreement that included the continued support of 4C through software and advisory expertise – making it cooperation that has spanned over two decades
According to the 4C Strategies, Exonaut is the de facto standard for end-to-end military training and exercise management software. It enables users to plan and design exercises, track training progression, evaluate performance against clear objectives, and make evidence-based exercise, training and budgetary decisions.
“The most necessary tool for an armed force is training and exercises – to be able to take the next step. Exonaut is the perfect tool for us, not only for planning but also for conducting and evaluating our exercises,” General Micael Bydén, Supreme Commander of the Swedish Armed Forces.
