Test Range Karlsborg and Skövde

The Test Centers in Karlsborg and Skövde are the establishments within the FMV Test & Evaluation Directorate that conduct the evaluation and validation of land combat systems such as vehicle systems, ammunition, weapon systems, C3 systems and protection systems.

During all stages of an acquisition process – from development, through operational use, to phase-out – advanced testing and validation are carried out on equipment to make sure that all the requirements and operational specifications are met.

The T&E Land Systems' major locations for facilities and resources are the cities of Skövde and Karlsborg in the southwestern part of Sweden. The Karlsborg Test Center provides resources for the evaluation of ammunition effects such as explosive manipulation, and the testing of environmental tolerance and firing ranges for performance tests.

Mobility and performance tests for both tracked and wheeled vehicles are conducted at the Test Center in Skövde, which among other resources, has access to the 50 km² exercise and training field.
