Saab: Saab to Deliver Integrated Combat System for New Australian Replenishment Ships

Defence and security company Saab has signed a contract with Spanish
shipbuilder Navantia for the delivery of an integrated combat system
for the two new Royal Australian Navy replenishment ships. The
contract value is SEK 226 million.

The integrated combat system includes procurement of combat system
equipment including the helicopter control radar and decoy system.
Saab will also provide combat system engineering services including
system design, integration and integrated logistic support.

"Saab will deliver an integrated combat system based on the latest
Saab 9LV Combat Management System. Thanks to system integration,
Saab's products can communicate seamlessly over different platforms,
which means that resources can be utilised more efficiently," says
Thomas Kloos, head of business unit Combat Systems and C4I solutions
within Saab business area Surveillance.

The majority of the combat system engineering work will be undertaken
in Adelaide with installation and acceptance testing of equipment to
be completed in Spain.

"As Australia's most experienced combat system designer and
integrator, Saab welcomes the continued investment in both the latest
generation 9LV technology and our highly skilled combat system
engineering team in Adelaide, South Australia," says Dean Rosenfield,
Managing Director of Saab Australia.

The Saab 9LV system is already in service with both the Anzac and
Canberra Class ships and the selection of this capability for the two
new replenishment ships further cements 9LV as the combat management
system of choice for the Royal Australian Navy.

For three decades, Saab Australia, which is part of Saab business area
Surveillance, has successfully delivered and supported the Royal
Australian Navy combat system capability. Saab's commitment to
technological innovation and advancement ensures world-leading
capability for modern defence forces. Saab Australia's local
expertise and experience makes it the perfect combat system
capability partner for the Royal Australian Navy, now and into the
future.
