Our vision

We want future generations to have the same opportunities as we do. Taking the same things for granted – from putting food on the table and having the right to vote – to the freedom of being ourselves. Our responsibility is to leave no one behind, resulting in a safer tomorrow – for all of us.

Our Mission

We make our clients’ everyday lives easier so that they can achieve their goals. This means owning the initiative and challenging both ourselves and each other to do our very best. We go the extra mile for our clients, and above all – we always keep our promises.

Our History

Our history dates to 1940, when the Teleanalys division was founded. One of Teleanalys’ first products was a filter system for radio communication for the Swedish Armed Forces.

In 1952, JL Weibull was established, which later became MSE Engineering – now a division of W5 Solutions. MSE Engineering has extensive experience in developing and manufacturing military training and simulation hardware. As early as 1960, the first turret loading trainer was designed for the Centurion tank. Today, turret trainers and loading trainers are provided for the Swedish version of Leopard II.

Some other recent products include a g-suit testing system for fighter aircraft pilots, a light control unit compatible with Swedish WHIP, and Minicom IP – a versatile VoIP communication system for the Swedish Armed Forces.
