06-21-2017 - Local science class visits Weibel

We often welcome schools at Weibel. This time was a particularly joyful reunion with the 8th grade science class at one of the local schools. It has become a tradition for them to stop by, in fact, Doppler technology now forms part of their curriculum, where they carry out experiments equipped with a piano, a car and a stopwatch. At Weibel, they can then experience the vast possibilities with Doppler radars. Denmark – and Weibel – need many more technology-savvy in the coming generations, so it's important to spark the interest early on.


06-16-2017 - Weibel at Folkemødet 2017

The People’s Meeting “Folkemødet” is an annual political festival for the people. It provides a unique platform for open debates on current topics of public interest. At Folkemødet, the people can meet and participate in debates with politicians, NGOs, companies, and organizations. In collaboration with the Danish Defence & Security Industries Association, Weibel hosted a debate about Denmark’s upcoming defense agreement and our promised contribution to NATO’s ballistic missile defense. Representatives from NATO, the Danish Marine, the US Embassy, and the Danish Parliament were speaking in front of a full house, flanked by defense and military experts. Different views on the defense agreement and missile defense were exchanged, but the United States and NATO made themselves clear: Ms. Laura Lochman, Chargé d’Affaires at the US Embassy in Copenhagen, lauded Denmark’s international efforts by stating that “The Danish contribution to NATO is critical, and the Danes are known for always living up to their commitment,” and the Danish Ambassador to NATO, Michael Zilmer-Johns, emphasized that “When a country commits, there is an expectation in NATO that they deliver.” Thank you to everyone participating in the debate for sharing their knowledge and perspectives on the defense agreement and Denmark’s contribution to NATO.

01-25-2017 - Weibel celebrates 40 years

40 years with more than 4,000 advanced radars in more than 40 countries – today we celebrate Weibel’s 40th anniversary. We have grown from 4 to 100 employees and put Denmark on the map as we compete with the world’s biggest defense companies. Today is truly a day to celebrate. For decades, Weibel has worked on one unique technology: The Doppler radar. We continue to perfect the technology and develop it in all its different configurations and its potential never ceases to amaze us. The same is true for our many talented and committed employees and our clients and partners, who always challenge us to go beyond known horizons in search of new technological solutions. At Weibel, we believe that the formula for success lies in insourcing, a constant willingness to challenge the laws of physics, and a tenacious insistence on the importance of quality. This has taken us far – from the first tracking radar sold by our founder Erik Tingleff Larsen to the US Army over securing safety for NASA launches to testing long-range missiles and developing unique gap-filling tracking and discrimination capabilities to ballistic missile defense. We want to thank everyone who has been part of our journey for the past 40 years and we look forward to what lies ahead.

 


11-14-2016 - Lockheed Martins CEO besøger Weibel Scientific i Allerød

Weibel Scientific bød i går Lockheed Martins bestyrelsesformand og CEO, Marillyn Hewson, velkommen i virksomhedens produktionsfaciliteter i Allerød. Besøget er et eksempel på Lockheed Martins traditioner for at arbejde tæt sammen med dansk industri, og Marillyn Hewson roste kompetencerne og det høje niveau, hun oplevede hos Weibels medarbejdere. Lockheed Martin arbejder tæt sammen med danske Weibel Scientific om at integrere Weibels unikke radarteknologi i Lockheed Martins ballistiske missilforsvarssystemer, som skal bruges til at beskytte både Danmark og de allierede i NATO. På sit besøg mødte Marillyn Hewson forsvarsministeren, erhvervs- og vækstministeren, samt Weibels medarbejdere og ledelse.   Lockheed Martin indgik for et år siden et strategisk partnerskab med Weibel Scientific om at integrere Weibels unikke radarteknologi med Lockheed Martins missilforsvarssystemer. Aftalen er et unikt industrisamarbejde med potentiale til at fordoble omsætningen for den danske eksportsucces på fem år, ifølge Peder R. Pedersen, administrerende direktør i Weibel. Marillyn Hewsons besøg, hvor de to virksomheder drøftede muligheden for at udvide det i forvejen tætte samarbejde, er en vigtig milepæl for Weibel.

10-11-2016 - Weibel hosts Ballistic Missile Defense conference

In September, the Danish Defense and Security Industries Association together with Centre for Military Studies hosted a conference about Denmark’s contribution to NATO's missile defense (BMD). The conference took place in a very relevant setting; namely, aboard a Danish frigate which will play a part in the missile defense by being equipped with a radar. At the sold-out conference, top officials from the Danish Navy as well as politicians, and industry and military experts discussed Denmark’s contribution to NATO’s BMD, especially the choice of radars.   Weibel Scientific director Peder R. Pedersen explained how Weibel offers the most advanced solution to BMD – a technology that NATO lacks and needs. With Weibel’s unique radar, GFTR-2100, NATO will be able to measure more precisely over longer distances, thus protecting larger areas.    


04-15-2016 - Weibel sails for Olympic gold

In the beginning of April, Danish Olympic sailor Jonas Hoegh-Christensen visited Weibel. A cooperation between a radar manufacturer and an Olympic sailor may not seem like the obvious match, but nonetheless, Weibel’s engineers help Jonas develop advanced components to make his dinghy faster than competitors at the Olympics in Rio later this year. Jonas took time during one of his rare visits in Denmark between training camps abroad to stop by Weibel’s headquarters and production facilities to explain the benefits of the cooperation to leading Danish technical magazine Ingenioren. Jonas has recently sailed with the new components for the first time and the results are clear: Weibel helps him glide faster through the water, giving him a competitive edge. At Weibel, we continuously develop and perfect new technology with an extreme focus on perfection. This is where yachting and radar development find their common ground and become an exceptional match – It’s all in the sum of marginal gains.                                                                                                               Jonas Høgh og CFO Thomas Munkholm Larsen i Weibels produktionshaller Jonas Høgh og udviklingsingeniør Rasmus Eriksen gennemgår bådens forbedringer    


03-18-2016 - Company of the week

Weibel has been named Company of the Week on Danish Industry’s News Channel IndustriNews. This has resulted in a broadcasted film that offers a secret peek behind the scenes at Weibel. Watch the film here. The recognition follows the approval of another Weibel radar for the Indonesian defense. At a time when outsourcing is becoming more and more widespread, Weibel has invested significantly in insourcing all production and development to our headquarters in Allerød, Copenhagen. This grants us complete control of all components in the entire process and allows us to deliver the highest quality – always. The recognition of Weibel as Company of the Week is an acknowledgment to all Weibel’s talented employees. Nothing is impossible at Weibel and without our employees' dedication and professional expertise, it would not be possible to continuously develop groundbreaking technology and provide the same high level of service to customers in more than 40 countries around the world.   Hvid Weibel i Industrinews MAR 2016
