Saab: Swedish LFV Commissions First Region of Saab's Nation-wide Wide Area Multilateration System

Defence and security company Saab announces that LFV, the Swedish Air
Navigation Service Provider, has formally commissioned the first
region of its Wide Area Multilateration (WAM) system on the path to
full nation-wide coverage in Sweden.

Saab's Wide Area Multilateration system will provide terminal and en
route surveillance over the greater Stockholm area and will
ultimately be used to improve surveillance for all of Sweden. The
airspace over Kiruna and the northern half of the country will follow
the Stockholm region closely, with Gothenburg planned for later in
2016, and the rest of the country over the course of 2017.

"A project of this scale will always present a variety of difficult
challenges but we are proud of the hard work and success that we have
been able to achieve in partnership with Saab. Together we have
brought a valuable service on-line that will improve our ability to
safely and efficiently manage air traffic in the skies over Sweden,"
says Ulf Thibblin, Technical Director at LFV.

Saab's multilateration solutions use multiple low-maintenance,
non-rotating sensors to calculate aircraft locations based on
transponder signals to provide air traffic controllers with precise
aircraft position and identification information regardless of
weather conditions. With a higher update rate and greater positional
accuracy than traditional radar, Saab's multilateration provides
effective surveillance for increased safety, capacity and efficiency
of airspace.

"This is an important milestone for the LFV Wide Area Multilateration
system and we are pleased with the role we have played in making it
happen. We have collaborated very effectively with LFV on this
project and expect that success to continue through the remaining
phases," says Anders Carp, head of business unit Traffic Management
within Saab business area Surveillance.

Saab uses a minimal number of sensors for a simpler, lower cost
solution by employing advanced processing techniques. Additionally,
each multilateration sensor deployed supports Automatic Dependent
Surveillance - Broadcast, providing an infrastructure that is ready
for today's surveillance needs and tomorrow's avionics.

The Wide Area Multilateration system will complement LFV's existing
Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR) network, allow them to retire
certain installations, and will improve and expand surveillance in
areas where terrain has limited its SSR coverage capabilities.

Almost 100 sites worldwide have chosen Saab multilateration to enhance
safety, efficiency, capacity and cost savings.
