Saab signs on for Swedish weather radar upgrade
Saab has announced that it has signed a six-year contract with the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) and the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) to carry out modernisation work on all twelve weather radar stations in Sweden. The contract, estimated to be worth SEK 100 million, will cover the period 2012-2017.
According to Saab, the contract will see it upgrade all twelve weather radar stations in Sweden to the Dual Polarised Doppler system. The new technology means greater possibilities for weather classification, such as predicting the type of precipitation that is likely to occur.
The work will be overseen by the SWERAD organisation, a collaboration between SMHI, FMV and the Swedish Armed Forces which was established in the 1980s to ensure the operation of Sweden's weather radar network. The contract includes options for a further three years.
