Saab: Saab to Provide Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport with Command & Control System

Defence and security company Saab has been awarded a contract by the
City of Phoenix's Aviation Department to provide an event management
system for Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX). As part
of the five-year agreement, Saab's SAFE - an open integration
software platform - will offer enterprise-wide situational awareness
and a shared, common operational picture, including real-time
landside and airside conditions.

SAFE is an enterprise command and control solution for organizations
with mission-critical operations. Users can manage resources and
events in real time through event-specific response plans and
automatic record capturing. At Phoenix Sky Harbor International
Airport, the system will be used for day-to-day routine events, as
well as emergency situations.

"Globalization has made airports increasingly important for
communities, both economically and socially. The City of Phoenix has
taken an important step by procuring a system that will improve the
use of existing assets and provide new functionality to enhance
overall event coordination and response," says Anders Carp, head of
Saab's business unit Traffic Management."

The contract includes installation and configuration of the SAFE
platform, including gateway interfaces, training and support. Saab
will partner with national mission-critical integrator SDI Presence
LLC (SDI), leveraging SDI's complex IT expertise and 20 years of
experience in the aviation sector.

Saab has been working with Phoenix Sky Harbor since 2012, when it was
contracted to provide its Aerobahn Surface Management Suite. Aerobahn
helps the airport manage its airside operations more effectively. The
new SAFE deployment will integrate with Aerobahn in order to provide
a truly comprehensive picture of what is happening at Phoenix Sky
Harbor International Airport across both airside to landside domains.
Phoenix Sky Harbor will be one of the first airports in the world
with this level of insight into the safety and efficiency of their

"Saab's airport security offerings align with the needs of the U.S.
market. Smooth airport operations require optimized workflows,
increased efficiency and a higher level of safety and security and
that's exactly what Aerobahn together with SAFE provides," says
Anders Carp.

Saab's entry into the U.S. homeland security market began in 2011 when
the company provided TactiCall - a net centric-based command and
control solution - for the State of Georgia's Trauma Communication
