Systecon was a project manager for the ILS work during the first part of the project of developing the next generation submarine, the A26, at Kockums AB. In the initial phase of a major equipment and supply project, it is very important to work with Integrated Logistic Support since many of the future system costs will be determined there.

This entailed the development, processing and adaptation of ILS plans for, among other things, AR & M, LSA, Supply Support, Technical Information, Training, In Service Support, Logistics Facilities. Through the initial ILS work, Systecon assisted in establishing a good foundation for the continued work of constructing the submarines.
