Quality Innovation Reliability
With over 35 years in operation, we at Carmenta are proud to have become an industry leader in situational awareness. The products we provide have not only led the way, but are also second to none when it comes to delivering reliability and stability for our customers’ most critical systems.
A glimpse into our history
Carmenta was founded in 1985 by four ambitious software engineers. One of their first assignments was to build tools for the computer system onboard the Swedish Air Force fighter aircraft Viggen. Then came an assignment from the Swedish Air Force, which called for sophisticated real-time handling of geographic data. It is from this project that our first product – Carmenta Engine – was born. In the mid-90s, Carmenta secured a large civilian aviation project that led to the creation of Carmenta Server. This technology was quickly adopted by the Swedish Armed Forces, Swedish Maritime Administration and Swedish Transport Administration as their preferred geoserver platform.
From there, we entered the public safety sector, creating map functionality for an emergency response system that turned into ResQMobile, eventually taking over Ericsson’s CoordCom, a command and control system for 112/emergency response. In 2015, we saw a new market for mission-critical situational awareness with the rise of autonomous (self-driving) vehicles, and we assumed the role of providing real-time information that vehicle sensors cannot reach. In 2018, we launched Carmenta TrafficWatch. Today, we operate three business areas, Carmenta Geospatial Technologies, Carmenta Public Safety, and Carmenta Automotive, providing next-level situational awareness products and services – with our eyes consistently on the future, beyond line of sight.
What motivates us
We build software components and systems that are deployed in mission-critical applications across a wide range of industries: defence, transport (land, sea and air), security and public safety. And it is the mission-critical nature of our customers’ work that animates us and unites everything we do. It is the urgency behind our customer service, the attention to detail in the development process, and our drive to innovate. When the success of a mission is on the line and lives are at stake, technology needs to perform.

Flying BVLOS drones within London Heathrow Airport
Operating drones in highly congested urban environments is a challenge. To do it beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) and autonomously, is an even greater challenge. This is what Carmenta …
