Saab: Saab to Supply KleinPilot to Great Lakes Pilotage Authority and U.S. Coast Guard

Defence and security company Saab has been awarded separate contracts
from the Canadian Great Lakes Pilotage Authority and the Great Lakes
Pilotage Division of the United States Coast Guard to upgrade their
Great Lakes Pilot Management System to the latest version of Saab's

The new KleinPilot system will replace the existing Saab supplied
system installed in 2006. It will be used by the two organizations
and the three U.S. Great Lakes pilotage associations to manage and
coordinate the dispatch of marine pilots on the Great Lakes and
automatically generate billing in accordance with the applicable
tariffs. Saab will host and administer the shared system on behalf of
the two organizations on a secure site to ensure the confidentiality
of the parties and data.

The KleinPilot is based on Saab's state-of-the-art N-Tier management
information system platform and will include the following new
features and functionality: Fully web based user interface to
facilitate easy user access

· Agent web portal for agents to submit pilotage requests and
monitor assignment status

· Pilot web portal (and optional iPhone application) to receive
assignments, record job information and submit time cards

The new system is scheduled to commence use in live production for the
start of the Great Lakes navigation season in March 2017.

The Great Lakes Pilotage Authority is a Canadian federal crown
corporation responsible for providing a safe and efficient pilotage
service within the Great Lakes region for commercial vessels.

The U.S. Coast Guard Great Lakes Pilotage Program is a specialized
program that manages the processes and procedures for the United
States registered pilots on the Great Lakes.

Pilotage within the international waters of the Great Lakes is managed
by the two organizations under a memorandum of arrangements between
Canada and the United States.

KleinPilot is a product of the Maritime Traffic Management product
area of Saab, a leading provider of Maritime Enterprise Software.
