From up close to far far away.

Test firings of weapon systems are our core business – and have been ever since 1886 when Bofors established its first firing range. Over the years, the experience from thousands of tests has created a cutting edge facility, ready to test the weapon systems of tomorrow.

The weapon systems of today are extremely diverse and require test facilities with a wide array of services. Bofors Test Center has all the knowledge, equipment and test sites required to meet the needs of today’s testing. Whatever type of system, distances needed, environmental conditions or target properties, we can give you the exact results of your product’s performance.

Anything. At any distance.

We test artillery and missile systems at ranges up to 25 km at Bofors Test Center and even up to 50 km using external test facilities, where we can also detonate charges with NEQ of up to approximately 5 tons. This gives you the opportunity to test the most extreme of weapon systems.

The truth. Anytime.

Qualification testing is all about finding out the absolute truth about a system’s performance. We have all the knowledge required to arrange tests which really achieve that goal in terms of design, execution and documentation. Our highly flexible organisation lets you harness this power whenever you need it, ensuring that your investments turn into revenue. Faster than anyone else’s.

Our strengths.

We have a wide variety of test areas, instrumentation and expertise to get the job done in the most efficient, safe and accurate way possible.
