Saab: Saab Receives Order from FMV for Gripen Upgrade

Defence and security company Saab has received an order from the
Swedish Defence Material Administration concerning an upgrade of the
IFF system in Gripen C/D. The order value amounts to approximately
SEK 240 million and delivery will take place in 2020.

The order concerns operations to upgrade the current IFF system
(identification, friend or foe) to reach compatibility with upcoming
NATO and civilian standards. The upgrade includes for example more
secure encryption and secure identification, which will be a
requirement for operations within NATO.

IFF is an identification system designed for command and control. It
enables military and national (civilian air traffic control)
interrogation systems to identify aircraft, vehicles or forces as
friendly and to determine their range from the interrogator. IFF can
be used by both military and civilian aircraft.

This IFF order supplements the latest MS 20 upgrade of Gripen C/D,
which is currently in operation with the Swedish Air Force, and
secures Gripen's position as one of the most capable fighter aircraft
systems available on the market.
