Indian Army orders communication equipment adapted to withstand extreme environmental conditions from Swedens Aqeri :
Aqeri’s largest export order to date
13 Oct 2010 – Aqeri has received its largest export order to date, worth more than MSEK 8, and the end customer is the Indian Army. For a long time Aqeri has been building up strong confidence in its products and is now beginning to reap the rewards of its work. The order, consisting of communication equipment adapted to withstand the extreme environmental conditions in Asia, will take place during the first and second quarters of 2011.
The order is the third in a row in this project and refers to the final part of a test series prior to the start of volume series. The Indian Navy has also shown interest in the same solution.
Similar products have been successfully tested for some years in another large project, a radar system, at a few places along India’s border.
"After 8 year’s presence in India with a number of small experimental orders where we have proved our competence we are now beginning to approach the larger projects, which is tremendously exciting" says Jan Israelsson, CEO of Aqeri.
