Ericsson Saab Avionics acquires EMC Services

Ericsson Saab Avionics acquires EMC Services As a result of the acquisition, both companies strengthen their roles in the EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) area, which is becoming increasingly important to master in order to avoid unwanted disturbances between electronic systems. This applies, for example, to automobiles, aircraft, IT products and industrial plants. EMC Services Elmiljöteknik AB is a consulting company that offers training, design support and testing in the EMC field. Based in Mölndal, Sweden, the company has six employees. Ericsson Saab Avionics AB is owned jointly by Ericsson and Saab and is the principal supplier of electronic systems to the Gripen fourth- generation fighter. The company is Saab's competence center in electromagnetic technology, with extensive EMC operations in Linköping. This also includes such other electromagnetic-related expertise as antennas and radar cross-sections. The acquisition strengthens Ericsson Saab Avionics' position as the leading company in EMC. As a result, customers are offered expanded resources, better geographical proximity and services that cover everything from analyses, simulations, design support, consulting and testing to training, with an extensive course program. In a comparable manner, EMC Services' customers are provided access to increasing broader expertise and greater resources for simulation and testing.
