Saab: Saab Receives Contract for Components to the U.S. Marine Corps' Ground/Air Task-Oriented Radar Program

Defence and security company Saab's U.S. based company, Saab Defense
and Security USA, LLC., has been awarded a contract from Northrop
Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) for additional components and
subsystems of the U.S. Marine Corps AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task
Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) system. The funded value of the contract is
$18.6 Million (166 MSEK).

G/ATOR will provide the U.S. Marine Corps with a single radar type
that performs air surveillance, air defense, ground weapon locating
and air traffic control missions. It is the first ground-based
multi-mission active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar to be
developed by the U.S. Department of Defense.

"With this contract, Saab continues to play a significant role in
providing this capability to the U.S. Marine Corps. Saab's proven
ability to provide innovative radar technology and highly capable
solutions, on our own as well as in partnership with US primes,
remains a strong foundation of our company and further supports our
leading position as a supplier of radar and sensor systems in the
global market," says Erik Smith, President and CEO of Saab Defense
and Security USA.

The contract awarded by Northrop Grumman Corporation, prime contractor
to the U.S. Marine Corps for the G/ATOR program, covers the delivery
of major subsystems and assemblies, as well as software, for the next
nine Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) units. The Saab developed and
built assemblies will be integrated by Northrop Grumman into the Lots
3-5 G/ATOR systems which will be delivered to the U.S. Marine Corps
starting in 2018. In 2016 Saab successfully completed delivery of the
first six systems under a prior contract for LRIP Lots 1 and 2.

Saab is a teammate to Northrop Grumman for the U.S. Marine Corps
AN/TPS-80 program. The award to Saab includes priced options for
additional sets of assemblies as well as associated spares.
