PLATH hands over last MoGeFA COMINT vehicles to Bundeswehr and successfully completes project
The series is complete: PLATH GmbH & Co. KG has handed over all 12 mobile, protected COMINT systems (MoGeFA) to the customer on schedule. MoGeFA is a series of modern reconnaissance systems of the Bundeswehr; they are mounted on mobile all-terrain, armoured, multipurpose platforms of the Yak type and can thus be deployed on a mobile basis. In 2016, the authority of the German Bundeswehr (BAAINBw) awarded the contract for a total of 12 vehicles to PLATH as general contractor through the military organisational division Cyber and Information Space (CIR). The vehicles of the last batch of this series have now been handed over to the BAAINBw as planned.
The business division PLATH S&I as part of PLATH GmbH & Co. KG was mainly responsible for coordinating the entire project and the suppliers. These include major industry players such as Rheinmetall Landsysteme GmbH or ELETTRONICA GmbH as well as INNOSYSTEC GmbH and PROCITEC GmbH, as independent companies within the PLATH Group. The transport vehicles of the Yak type provided by the Bundeswehr were each equipped with a fully integrated COMINT system, including all the necessary hardware and software systems by the participating companies under the management of PLATH S&I. PLATH S&I took over the integration of all components into a powerful overall system.
The mobile protected COMINT systems make an important reconnaissance contribution to the situational picture and directly support operational command in the field. With MoGeFA, the Bundeswehr now has a highly mobile and powerful system with all the necessary capabilities for COMINT.
‘At the time it was awarded, MoGeFA was the Bundeswehr’s largest project ever awarded to a medium-sized company,’ emphasises Dr Michaelsen, CEO of PLATH GmbH & Co. KG. ‘It was also the first Bundeswehr project in which a specialised company from the reconnaissance industry, PLATH, assumed the general contractor role for the entire platform. We are proud to have now completed this important major project within the agreed time frame and budget, thus assisting the Bundeswehr in fulfilling its security mission.’
