DSEI 2019: Dutch Army leads on CV90 Iron Fist integration
11th September 2019 - 09:00 GMT | by Beth Maundrill in London



The Royal Netherlands Army is a step closer to equipping its CV90 IFV fleet with a new active protection systems (APS) following the completion of testing of the system this summer.

BAE Systems Hägglunds, the vehicle’s OEM, has been selected by the Royal Netherlands Army to integrate the Iron Fist APS from Elbit Systems onto the IFV.

Hägglunds was unable to confirm how many of the 184-strong fleet of CV90s would be equipped with the APS. On timing BAE Systems said that it had passed the system test this summer.

‘We have been testing with both different anti-tank rockets and missiles with a good outcome,’ Dan Lindell, director combat vehicles Hägglunds at BAE Systems Hägglunds told Shephard.

Since 2015 the Royal Netherlands Army has been working with BAE Systems Hägglunds to study the implementation of the Iron Fist APS onto the CV9035NL.

‘Over the last couple of years, we have done a thorough job in studying the integration and conducting system tests with the APS for the CV90 platform. We are now confident that it will provide the capability we need. The APS will give a significant combat advantage and will improve tactical operation,’ Joost Vernooij, project manager for CV90 with the Royal Netherlands Army said.

The first phase of testing evaluated the feasibility of five systems. The second phase focused on the inherent performance and high-level integration of the APS. With the first layer of soft-kill technology integrated onto the Royal Netherlands Army’s CV9035NL fleet, plans are underway to add the Iron Fist’s final layer.

Vernooij added that the Netherlands will continue the next phase of the mid-life upgrade programme for CV9035NL with focus on integration, human machine interfacing and performance optimisation.

Hägglunds was unable to confirm if other CV90 users were likely to integrate the APS onto their own vehicles, however Lindell said: ‘This is a significant technology step forward for the platform, but it’s also another example of how the user groups interacts for sharing development.

‘For the APS development the Dutch is in lead and other users follow closely. In other developments – for example rubber trucks with Norway in lead, mortar with Sweden in lead – we have different countries in lead and all users benefits.’
Indeed, BAE Systems Hägglunds began the delivery of the first Swedish 120mm CV90 Mjölner self-propelled mortar (SPM) to the Swedish Army this summer.

CV90 users currently include Denmark, Estonia, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland and Sweden. The CV90 user group set up is designed to allow development and system integration on one countries platform and then to allow others the opportunity to follow suit.

However, BAE Systems told Shephard no other testing had been carried out of the APS for other nations.
On whether the Iron Fist APS could be part of the company’s offering of the CV90 for both the Australian Army under it Land 400 Phase 3 effort and the Czech Republic the company said that it was unable to comment on future bids.

The Iron Fist technology automatically detects, tracks and neutralises incoming threats to protect the vehicle and its crew. In August 2019 the Iron Fist Light Decoupled system was selected by Israel’s MoD for integration on the new eight wheeled Eitan AFV and the D-9 Bulldozer vehicle.

PS : Lá se vai perder mais uma oportunidade, de adquirir, algumas dezenas de CV90, para se começar a substituir os Velhinhos M113, pois, pelo que se sabe, nem todos os 184 IFV's Holandeses, serão melhorados.

https://defence-blog.com/army/netherlands-completes-delivery-of-cv90-combat-vehicles-to-estonia.html

“At the end of 2014, Estonia concluded an agreement for the purchase of 44 units of CV9035NL IFVs and six auxiliary vehicles built on the chassis of Leopard 1 main battle tank from the Netherlands for 113 million euros. The purchased IFVs are second-hand. All vehicles went through maintenance and, if needed, repairs in the Netherlands before being handed over to Estonia,” said in news report.

Rheinmetall Modernizes a Further 21 BÜFFEL ARV for the Netherlands


A further 21 BÜFFEL ARVs will be upgraded under the new Ducth armed forces contract. (Photo: Rheinmetall)

The Dutch armed forces have awarded Rheinmetall an order for the second phase of modernization of their fleet of BERGEPANZER 3-BÜFFEL/BUFFALO armoured recovery vehicles (ARV). The operational effectiveness of 21 vehicles will be upgraded, following a first order covering four vehicles, awarded in April 2019.

Rheinmetall will begin work immediately on bringing the batch of vehicles up to the latest technological and tactical standards, extending the service life of these tried-and-tested combat support vehicles – developed by Rheinmetall on the basis of the LEOPARD 2 chassis – through to 2040. The Dutch armed forces will take delivery of the first vehicles at the beginning of 2021.

Modernization work will take place at Rheinmetall locations Germany and the Netherlands. It will include a complete overhaul of the individual ARVs and a new digital operating concept; the installation of advanced visualization technology; mission packages featuring ballistic and mine protection; and new battlefield recovery equipment as well as a universal transport platform. Also included in the contract are technical documentation, training and other services.

This service life extension will give the Dutch armed forces a reconfigured state-of-the-art ARV with significant growth potential. New force protection features both on and in the vehicle will keep the crew safe from modern battlefield threats. Cutting-edge visualization systems, digital operating elements and command systems will support the crew while carrying out their tasks. Furthermore, new battlefield recovery equipment will boost the vehicle’s tactical effectiveness. It will be transferred to the rear section of the vehicle.

This will let the crew hook up to damaged army vehicles such as the BUSHMASTER, BOXER, CV 90 infantry fighting vehicle, PzH 2000 self-propelled howitzer, LEGUAN bridge-laying tank, KODIAK combat engineering vehicle or the LEOPARD 2 main battle tank without having to leave the safety of the fighting compartment, before towing it from the battlefield at high speed in forward gear. In addition, the modified version of the BÜFFEL will feature a flexible-use universal transport platform mounted on the rear section of the vehicle. To cite just one example, this can be used for carrying equipment for recovering other vehicles. The new equipment has already demonstrated its effectiveness during operations.

This contract confirms the emergence of a new standard for modern armoured recovery vehicles. As recently as December 2018, the Bundeswehr contracted with Rheinmetall to modernize its BERGEPANZER 3 fleet, ensuring it remains a match for current and future operational scenarios. Similar mission configurations are in service with the armed forces of Canada and Sweden.

Already underway, this service life extension programme underscores once again Rheinmetall’s comprehensive expertise when it comes to the LEOPARD 2 family. This expertise extends from maintenance and modernization programmes to advanced armament concepts, and from the production and technical knowledge of the system’s original equipment manufacturer right through to comprehensive technical and logistic support for entire vehicle fleets – including service support during operations. The Rheinmetall portfolio also includes training and simulation solutions for Leopard 2 crews.

BAE Systems upgrading Dutch army CV90 IFV Infantry Fighting Vehicles

As one of seven European users of the CV90, the Royal Netherlands Army operates 144 CV90s. Being a part of the CV90 family means that the user is working closely and continuously with BAE Systems to improve the vehicle’s current capabilities and looking at investments that will ensure the Dutch Army’s CV90s stay relevant for future challenges.

As part of a more than 500 million EUR upgrade program, the most recent step forward is the implementation of a rubber track system on the Dutch CV9035 Infantry Fighting Vehicle. What may seem like a small change from steel tracks to rubber has an enormous benefit – the change will improve crew endurance and running costs and significantly reduce weight, which in turn allows for better performance.

The rubber track system is jointly developed by Soucy International in Quebec, Canada, and BAE Systems Hägglunds in Sweden. Soucy has designed and produced the tracks and BAE Systems has qualified the system in full-scale trials. CV90s with rubber track systems are already in use by the Norwegian forces and have been through the real test of active missions in northern Afghanistan.

Altogether, the change to rubber tracks increases the potential for further upgrades.

The new contract, signed earlier this month, includes development, testing and verification, as well as the delivery of implementation kits for training alongside the Dutch customer – this will secure Dutch defense security of supply for many years to come.

The modification of the CV9035NL vehicles from steel tracks to a rubber track system has many benefits, including cutting the noise level inside the vehicle by a massive 10 dB and vibration levels by 65 percent. “The reduced vibration levels will increase the life expectancy of electronics, optronics, and ammunition, which will significantly reduce vehicle running costs,” explains Dan Lindell, Director Combat Vehicles at BAE Systems Hägglunds. “What’s more, with the reduction of close to 1 tonne in vehicle weight as a result of the change to a rubber track system, there will be increased potential for continuous growth.”

There are significant benefits for the Dutch CV90 crew too. The change to a rubber track system will help to reduce crew fatigue thanks to reduced noise levels inside the vehicle. The adjustment also improves the CV90’s stealth on the battlefield and increases its mobility in the most challenging conditions.

This modification is the latest in series of incremental upgrades to the Dutch CV90s. Most recently, in 2019, the Dutch Army selected BAE Systems to integrate the Elbit Systems’ Iron Fist Active Protection System (APS) into its fleet. Iron Fist is an advanced technology that automatically detects, tracks and neutralizes incoming threats to protect the vehicle and its crew.

“This development is a real strategic milestone in the CV90’s approach to holistic survivability,” added Lindell. “It complements the already existing stealth- and soft-kill layers with further means to defeat the incoming threat, making survivability even more achievable.”

While focused on the next phase of their Mid-Life Upgrade program, the Netherlands still finds time to join six other European nations as part of the CV90 User Club. These annual meetings – normally held in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden, where BAE Systems manufactures the CV90 – are a forum for each nation to share combat experiences, concerns about emerging threats and requirements, or ideas for new innovations and technologies.

As a member of the club there is always something more to learn as the group works closely together with the CV90 team to continuously evolve the vehicle’s capabilities as a modern, advanced, and affordable combat vehicle.

Update Readies Combat Vehicle for Future Threats

(Source: Netherlands Ministry of Defence; issued Nov. 10, 2020)

The modernization of 122 Dutch Army CV9035NL Infantry Fighting Vehicles has come a step closer. State Secretary Barbara Visser today informed the House about the progress. The aim of the so-called midlife update (MLU) is to ensure operationally relevant, maintainable and future-proof vehicles.
The security situation has changed in recent years and potential enemies have become considerably more capable. The importance of a necessary strengthening of an integrated "command & control network" has therefore only increased. The MLU ensures that the CV90 remains operationally relevant and technically usable until the end of its planned lifespan in 2039.
It includes improvements in firepower, protection, mobility, observation and command and control.

Active protection system

The update includes the integration of CV90 active protection systems, which detect and disrupt incoming projectiles. Firepower improves with the addition of the Spike anti-tank missile system. There are new observation sensors for the commander and gunner, while the driver is provided with a thermal imaging device.
In addition, the CV90s will receive a future-proof IT infrastructure and an integrated battlefield management system. Better detection and identification options make information-driven operations more possible.

The initial offer was higher than the available budget. That is why the assignment has been adjusted, both qualitatively and quantitatively.

The number of vehicles to be modified has been adjusted from 141 to 122, and the number of driver training vehicles from 8 to 6.

Qualitatively, an additional camouflage system is not included. Cyber security, on the other hand, was increased.

The budget has been increased by around € 24 million to more than € 660 million.

Looking forward

The State Secretary wants to sign the contract with supplier BAE Systems Hägglunds (BSH) as soon as possible, and no later than the 1st quarter of 2021.

After signing, the MLU of four prototype vehicles will start. It has been agreed with BSH that the company Van Halteren Metaal will carry out the series production of the MLU. The first series production vehicles will be delivered in 2024, the last in 2026.

KMW renews Dutch Army Fennek reconnaissance vehicle fleet

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, 09 DECEMBER 2020 15:46

Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) and the Dutch procurement agency DMO (Defence Materiel Organisation) have signed a contract for the upgrading of 322 Fennek vehicles. The MLU (Mid Life Update) order has a volume of over EUR 300 million and includes among others the integration of new observation and reconnaissance systems (BAA II NDL) and the integration of the C4I command and control system.


Dutch army Fenneks (Picture source: Army Recognition)

The work is to be carried out at KMW in Germany as well as in the Netherlands, at the partner companies Van Halteren Defence and Nedinsco in cooperation with the army’s Material Stock Logistic Command (MatLogCo). Delivery of the upgraded Fennek systems will begin in 2021 and is expected to be completed in 2027.

The Fennek is a binational project between Germany and The Netherlands. There are other variants in addition to the Fennek recon vehicles, ranging from an engineering vehicle to an anti-tank version and even one for high-mobility anti-aircraft defence.


Various weapons can be fitted on the Fennek, such as a 12.7 mm machine gun for the Dutch reconnaissance version (Picture source: KMW)

The Fennek has four wheels with selectable two or four wheel drive. It has a Deutz diesel engine producing 179 kW, giving it a top speed of 115 km/h. Tire pressure can be regulated by the driver from inside the vehicle to suit terrain conditions.

The primary mission equipment is an observation package mounted on an extendable mast. Sensors include a thermal imager, daylight camera and a laser rangefinder. Combined with the vehicle's GPS and inertial navigation system the operator can accurately mark targets or points of interest and pass that data to the digital battlefield network. The sensor head of the observation package can also be removed and mounted on a tripod for concealed operation, as can the control unit from the vehicle should the crew want to use the entire system dismounted. Many Fenneks of the German Army are also equipped with Aladin miniature UAVs.

Various weapons can be fitted, such as a 12.7 mm machine gun for the Dutch reconnaissance version, a Rafael Spike anti-tank missile on the Dutch MRAT version or a 40 mm automatic grenade launcher (HK GMG) or Rheinmetall MG3 for the German vehicles. The Royal Netherlands Army also placed an order at the Turkish company ASELSAN for 18 Raytheon Stinger surface-to-air missile launchers to be fitted on the Fennek. The launcher in this case is the Stinger Weapon Platform (SWP), with four Stinger missiles intended for mid-range air defence. The launcher can be controlled from on board the vehicle, or else remotely as part of a distributed air defense system. On the Dutch Fennek the primary weapon is the 12.7 mm machine gun.

The vehicle is protected all-round against 7.62 mm rounds and additional armour can be added if the mission requires. The air conditioning system provides protection against nuclear, biological and chemical warfare and the crew compartment is protected against anti-personnel mines.
