Saab signs airborne surveillance system support contract

21st March 2013 - 13:41 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab has announced that it has signed a support contract with an unnamed customer for a previously delivered Saab 2000 Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) system. The agreement covers the 2013-2017 period and is valued at MSEK 1,100.

The contract concerns a comprehensive set of spares and support services for the Saab 2000 AEW&C, which is comprised of Saab 2000 aircraft equipped with the advanced Erieye radar system and ground equipment.

The wide-area surveillance system in combination with ground equipment enables control over both land and sea, and can play an important role for border surveillance and rescue operations as well as in combating terrorism and organised crime.

Gunilla Fransson, head of Saab’s business area Security and Defence Solutions, said: ‘Our surveillance system provides the customer with improved solutions for defence and civil security. This contract is a result of our close cooperation with our customer and can be seen as a further confirmation of our strong capability to provide our customers with advanced service and support solutions.’

No further details on the contract have been released.
