Shaping the future with innovation and expertise

RUAG impresses with its maintenance and development skills. We would like to develop further, and to establish ourselves as a platform for security-relevant problems and solutions.

We can claim to be not just one of, but the technology partner of the Swiss Armed Forces. In our function as a comprehensive material competence center (MCC) and system integration specialist, we offer solutions along the entire product life cycle; from procurement to introducing units to decommissioning a system.

We would like to enhance our service portfolio and, in addition to our role as a life-cycle partner of the Swiss Armed Forces and innovation and technology partner of the Swiss security organizations, develop a platform for security-relevant problems and solutions. We operate within the entire environment of Swiss security firms, working with small start-ups and long-estab-lished companies alike. And we tirelessly search for innovative approaches and methods as part of our research and develop-ment work as well. We bundle our expertise and enable cross-sectoral cooperation.

The Kickbox concept, which creates an internal innovation platform and purposefully promotes entrepreneurship, delivers us additional ideas. Therefore, we involve our employees and encourage them to develop their own new ideas. We allow these ideas to mature, test them, and improve them. An inhouse committee supports the pilot projects with its expertise and involves the customers from the beginning. If it becomes evident during the process that an idea is not well thought out, we learn this early on, save the budget, and increase the chances of success for future projects.
