Saab: Saab Receives Optronic Sensors Order For Canadian Navy

Defence and security company Saab has received an order from Lockheed
Martin Canada to add optronic sensors to the Canadian navy's Ceros
200 fire control directors. Manufactured by Saab, the Ceros 200
equips all of Canada's Halifax-class frigates along with a land-based
test site.

Lockheed Martin Canada is the prime contractor for Canada's
Halifax-class frigate modernisation programme. The work specified in
this order will be carried out during 2016 and 2017.

"This order is the result of Saab's good cooperation with Lockheed
Martin and the Canadian navy. The agreement will improve the system
beyond its original specifications," says Thomas Kloos, head of
business unit Combat Systems and C4I Solutions within Saab business
area Surveillance.

The additional sensors provide a complement to radar in the Ceros 200
fire control director.

"This is an important additional order within one of Saab's core areas
on the key Canadian market that further cements our partnership with
Lockheed Martin and the Canadian customer," says Patric Palmer, Saab
market area North America.

The work will be carried out at Saab in Sweden as well as in Canada.

Ceros 200 is a radar and optronic fire control director for naval
ships. When interfaced with modern missile or gun systems it provides
excellent defence against any threat including advanced sea skimming
missiles or asymmetric surface threats in littoral environments.
