Successful in life cycle management and system support
Software and hardware maintenance
In July 2018, RUAG was commissioned to perform a system analysis and develop a concept for IMFS value preservation. The goal was to determine which components need to be replaced or adapted. In addition to the replacement of hardware and software parts and the associated adaptation of documentation, RUAG has impressed with its overall project management and quality management in this project.
The software updates include, among other things, procuring mobile operating station and diagnostics PCs as well as mobile printers, adapting transport containers to new devices, upgrading the three training systems, updating the operating systems, updating the network management applications and procuring data carriers for various software images.
All hardware procurement (components, material and IT devices) is already complete. As part of the hardware update, a replacement transformer switch was developed for the NG IMFS power supply. In addition, repair materials were identified and procured while various upgrades, tests and acceptances were carried out. Updates to maintenance documentation, including photographic material, are also part of the project.
The project is scheduled for completion in June 2021. As a strategic partner of the Swiss Armed Forces, RUAG impresses with a communication structure that is precisely

Always on standby for safe roads
Amt für Betrieb Nationalstrassen (National Road Operation Office)
24-hour on-call service
Committed to safe roads
The vehicles are equipped with numerous state-of-the-art devices. In addition to a GPS system, the vehicle has sensors that measure the ground temperature and distribute automatic quantities of salt or brine. The winter service manager can track all of the vehicles’ activities in a decentralized manner on a PC.
“It’s a challenging job for the drivers that requires technical skills, flexibility and flawless communication,” explained Franz Püntener, team leader of Strassenunterhalt Süd (Road Maintenance South). It’s a job that could not be carried out without good teamwork. When it comes to the various operations, good contact with the winter service manager isn’t the only thing that is essential. “The drivers are alone in the vehicle, so it is crucial for them to communicate with each other,” said Püntener.
To ensure smooth communication, the National Road Operation Office commissioned RUAG to install digital TPM700 radio devices and holders in the vehicles. They have been in use for around three months now and support drivers and winter service managers with their daily challenges. The new, digital radio devices prove themselves through smooth, high-quality communication, even in tunnels. They standardize the entire communication system in all vehicles so that drivers can communicate with each other clearly. This ensures that the National Road Operation Office is operational at all times and guarantees that roads are safe.
