The delivery of the prototype one is an important milestone for the project and an important part in the forthcoming series of contract negotiations with Bofors.

Project Archer has previously had two experimental pieces which, for an untrained eye, might look like prototypes. The experimental pieces aim was to test and develop the idea of a wheeled autonomous artillery system and test the new technology in different environments and contexts and in particular to develop methods for the use of artillery.


Then there is still some developments, there will be some differences on the prototype one and two. The cab of the prototype which has not, for example, the same protection as the cab at the prototype two and on the next series of products. Prototype one has the Swedish configuration and prototype two, Norwegian configuration.

The two prototypes will be verified and completed in spring 2010. Archer Artillery System is then fully mature and the first production delivery to Sweden and Norway starting in 2011.




Sweden Green Lights Archer Acquisition (11. September 2008)



Regeringsbeslut om Archer (2. September 2008)

Den nya artilleripjäsen Archer är snart i tjänst. Regeringen har fattat beslut om fortsatt utveckling och anskaffning av denna modifierade Haubits 77B.

The new artillery system Archer is in service soon. The government has made ​​a decision to continue with the development and procurement of this modified Howitzer 77B

Regeringen anser att en gemensam utveckling och anskaffning av Archer tillsammans med Norge skapar både förutsättningar för förbättrad samverkansförmåga i internationella insatser. Dessutom finns det möjligheter till delade kostnader för utbildning och träning av soldater samt för logistik, underhåll och modifieringar av systemen.

The government considers the joint development and acquisition of Archer with Norway, which creates for both opportunities for enhanced interoperability in international efforts. Additionally, there are opportunities to share costs for education and training of soldiers as well as for logistics, maintenance and modifications to the systems.

I samarbetet med Norge ingår även en svensk anskaffning av den fjärrstyrda vapenstationen Protector. För att fatta beslut om en svensk anskaffning av detta system behövs bemyndigande från riksdagen. Regeringen avser begära detta i budgetpropositionen för 2009.

The cooperation with Norway also includes a Swedish acquisition of the remotely controlled weapon station Protector. To decide on a Swedish acquisition of this system authorization from Parliament is necessary. The Government intends to request it in the 2009 Budget Bill.

BAE Systems selects Sagem’s Sigma 30 inertial reference unit for Archer artillery systems

Sagem (Safran group) has won a BAE Systems contract, against an international field of competitors, to provide Sigma 30 pointing and navigation units for 48 new FH77 L52 Archer artillery systems to be deployed by the Norwegian and Swedish armies. Service entry is slated for late 2011 with the Nordic Battalion.


The Sigma 30 inertial units will be mounted directly on the 155 mm barrel. Because of their precision measurements, these units further enhance the high-level automation of the Archer artillery system, which is designed to lay down very accurate fire on short notice and at a high rate. Integrated in the artillery command and coordination systems, Sigma 30 will also enable Archer a wide range of firing options, in particular simultaneous strikes against a single target.

Excalibur och Archer visar precision (VIDEO)

Bild

FMV genomförde i mitten av maj ett verifieringstest av precisionsgranaten Excalibur på Älvdalens skjutfält. Totalt sköts tio granater med varierande laddningar och elevationer från artilleripjäsen Archer. Skjutavståndet var cirka 31 km och samtliga granater navigerade och träffade inom några få meter från målpunkten.

    - Skjutningen fungerade helt enligt planen och nu kan vi bocka av en av de sista stora milstolparna i det Excaliburprojekt som startade som ett svensk-amerikanskt samarbete 2002, säger FMV:s projektledare Michael Helander.


FMV führte Mitte Mai einen Validierungstest der Präzisionsgranate Excalibur auf dem Schießplatz Älvdalen durch. Insgesamt wurden zehn Granaten mit unterschiedlichen Treibladungen und Richthöhen durch das Geschütz Archer verschossen. Die Schussdistanz betrug etwa 31 km und alle Granaten wurden gesteuert und trafen innerhalb weniger Meter um den Zielpunkt.

    - Das Schießen lief insgesamt wie geplant und nun können wir einen der letzten Meilensteine des Projekts Excalibur abhaken, das 2002 als schwedisch-amerikanische Kooperation gestartet wurde, sagt FMV-Projektmanager Michael Helander.


Testet genomfördes med en Archer förseriepjäs eftersom systemet ännu inte är levererat till Försvarsmakten. Den svenska kvalificeringen av Excalibur i Archersystemet är nu också avklarad och Försvarsmakten kommer att ha en produkt med mycket hög precision och med en räckvidd upp till 50 km.


Der Test wurde mit der Vorserienversion von Archer durchgeführt, da das System noch nicht an die Streitkräfte ausgeliefert ist. Die schwedische Qualifizierung von Excalibur ist nun komplett und die Streitkräfte werden über ein Produkt mit sehr hoher Präzision und einer Reichweite von bis zu 50 km verfügen.

Det kan precisionsbekämpa mål på en yta av nästan 8000 km2 inom cirka tre minuter, vilket är granatens flygtid på maximalt skjutavstånd.


Es kann Ziele in einem Bereich von fast 8000 km² binnen drei Minuten präzise bekämpfen, was die Flugzeit der Granate auf der maximalen Schussdistanz darstellt.

Tillverkningen beräknas börja under 2014 och Försvarsmakten kommer att få leverans av version 2 av Excalibur under 2015. Version 1 finns i Försvarsmaktens förråd sedan oktober 2012.


Der Beginn der Produktion wird für 2014 erwartet und die Streitkräfte werden die Version 2 der Excalibur 2015 übernehmen. Version 1 befindet sich seit Oktober 2012 im Bestand der Streitkräfte.

Ein herber Rückschlag für Schweden:

    Norge avslutter kontrakten om artillerisystemet Archer




    Norge bryter samarbetet kring Archer
    Norway breaks cooperation on Archer

    Den norska regeringen meddelade idag att de har valt att lämna samarbetet kring artillerisystemet Archer. Det inleddes 2007 eftersom Archer visade sig ha lika bra, och i vissa fall bättre, prestanda än alternativa artillerisystem till en betydligt lägre kostnad.

    I dag uppger norska regeringen att de avser avbryta samarbetet.


    The Norwegian government announced today that they have chosen to leave the cooperation on the Archer artillery system . It began in 2007 as Archer turned out to have just as good, and in some cases better performance than alternative artillery system at a significantly lower cost.

    Today, says Norwegian government that they intend to terminate the agreement.


    Samarbetet med Norge har inte varit förgäves. Sverige och Norge har delat på själva utvecklingskostnaderna för artillerisystemet och där har staten sparat många hundra miljoner. Däremot blir det färre system att slå ut driftkostnaden på i längden.

    De första Archerpjäserna är redan levererade till det svenska försvaret och FMV kan formellt fullfölja anskaffningen på egen hand.

    - Vi har nu regelbunden kontakt med tillverkaren BAE Systems för att diskutera hur vi går vidare, säger Lena Erixon.


    Cooperation with Norway has not been in vain. Sweden and Norway have shared in the development costs of the artillery system, and where the state has saved many hundreds of millions. However, it becomes less system to knock out the operating cost in the long run .

    The first Archer pieces are already delivered to the Swedish Armed Forces and FMV may formally pursue the acquisition on its own.

    - We now have regular contact with the manufacturer BAE Systems to discuss how we move forward , says Lena Erixon.

"Archersystemet ett lyft för oss" (19. Juni 2014)



New Delivery Agreement for Archer (18. Juni 2014)

Since December 2013, when Norway withdrew from collaboration with Sweden on the Archer artillery system project, there has been uncertainty about how this would affect delivery of the system to Sweden. Therefore, on 17 June 2014 FMV finalised an amended agreement with BAE Bofors AB. Final deliveries of the system to the Swedish Armed Forces will start at the beginning of 2016 and continue at a rate of two systems per month.

FMV delivered a pre-production series of four systems to the Artillery Regiment, A9, in Boden in September 2013.

Why Norway Pulled the Plug on Archer (9. Dezember 2013)

Norway’s surprise Dec. 6 decision to withdraw from the Archer 155mm joint artillery project with Sweden was prompted by delivery delays and by unspecified performance shortcomings, according to Norwegian defense officials.

“Late delivery is one of the reasons for cancelling. Our Minister of Defence has also said that Archer does not meet Norwegian operational requirements set out in the contract,” Birgitte Frisch, special advisor to the new defense minister Ine Eriksen Søreide, told Defense-Aerospace.com Dec. 7. She added that the Norwegian Chief of Defence, Admiral Haakon Bruun-Hanssen on Dec. 2 “gave his recommendation to the [minister] to cancel the project, a recommendation that the minister followed.” Both top Norwegian defense officials took office less than two months ago.

Contractually, all 24 Archer guns on order for Norway were to have been delivered by the end of 2013, and in operation by the end of 2014, according to the Norwegian MoD’s official statement, but as of December 2013 none had been delivered. Prime contractor BAE Systems Sweden delivered the first four Archers to the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration, FMV, on Sept. 23, but in its statement at the time made no mention of deliveries to Norway.

Maj. Eystein Kvarving, spokesman for the Norwegian Chief of Defence, told Defense-Aerospace.com Dec. 7 that “Norway has a requirement for a highly mobile and very quick artillery system, and mobility also means mobility during our extreme winter conditions. If Archer had worked to specification, it would have suited us,” but this was not the case. He declined to elaborate on the system’s shortcomings because of classification issues.

Norway’s intention is to continue working on acquiring a new artillery system that can enter service in 2020, when its current artillery will have to be retired. It currently has a single artillery battalion, nominally with 18 M109s.

It is surprising that the mobility issue came up at such a late stage in the program, but in the official statement announcing its withdrawal, the Norwegian Ministry of Defence said it was pulling out because “the army has changed its concept of operations to be more mobile and to operate faster,” implying Archer no longer fits these new requirements.

To date, Norway has spent 550 million kroner on the Archer project, Frische said, of which NOK 380 million on development and NOK 170 million on procurement, out of a total program envelope estimated by Swedish media at about NOK 700 million. She declined to say if and how much Norway might have to pay in terms of penalties, and said “details regarding the cancellation will be settled at later stage.”

Frische further noted that “However, we do not pull out of the entire project (Project New Artillery for the Army) or of cooperation with FMV: we still cooperate on artillery-locating radar (ARTHUR), fire control system (ODIN) and ammunition,” as well as education and training.

Development of 155 mm IM HE-ER completed (8. April 2015)

Bild

In February 2013, Nammo started to develop a new family of conventional 155 mm artillery ammunition, specially designed for long range (40 km).

On Wednesday March 25th 2015, the 155 mm Insensitive Munition High Explosive Extended Range (IM HE-ER) was successfully test fired at 32 km range, in Älvdalen, Sweden, and this test concluded the development phase of the first new Nammo 155 mm round!

The test was a demonstration for the Swedish Armed Forces, and the rounds were fired from the Swedish Archer Gun System. A total of 32 live rounds were fired, all functioned as intended with a low dispersion in the target – High Precision at Long Distance.

Nammo expects the development contract for the entire 155 mm family to be signed by the Norway Government by August, and the product qualification of IM HE-ER is planned to be completed by Q1 2016.
