Estonian-Swedish researchers cooperating on defense technology ({{commentsTotal}})

The Tallinn University of Technology (TUT) Center for Defense and Security Studies STRATEK held an Estonian-Swedish joint defense research seminar.

Hosted by the STRATEK and the Estonian Ministry of Defense last week, the subject of the international defense seminar was research of camouflage, modelling, materials, and systems for visible, IR and radar detection for soldiers.

According to the chairman of the seminar, the director of STRATEK, Katrin Idla, the participants expressed their willingness to continue similar cooperation in future.

“This time researchers and members of the armed forces from five countries – Estonia, Sweden, Finland, Latvia and Lithuania – attended the seminar,” Idla said.

STRATEK was established at Tallinn University of Technology in the spring for the purposes of developing and implementing strategic defense and security technologies, which organizes research activities inside TUT, as well as cooperation between TUT and research institutions and researchers of different NATO and partner countries.

In the framework of the projects of the Center, several military technology solutions have been developed, such as jamming systems for protection against Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Devices (RCIEDs), an unmanned ground vehicle, a compact and portable analyzer of chemical warfare agents, adaptive multi-spectral camouflage solutions, and light-weight ceramic composites for ballistic protection.
