RUAG has been awarded another major project by armasuisse. As part of the “Latest-generation mobile disinfection and sterilisation systems” project, RUAG will be the prime contractor and, will develop the systems and then integrate them into containers for mobile deployment. 

Besides developing and integrating the systems, RUAG will also be responsible for testing and qualification. By 2022, all 14 systems (7 disinfection systems and 7 sterilisation systems) will be completed and delivered. The systems will be used by the medical corps of the Swiss Armed Forces and will ensure their ability to disinfect and sterilise in all situations.
