Saab has been awarded an order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration to provide tactical data links for the Swedish Navy’s surface warfare vessels, the company announced on 13 February.

The total order value is approximately $18.39 million.

The contract will see Saab integrate data links such as L22 and L16 into Swedish Navy platforms to enable closer co-operation and communication with other nations at sea during missions.

Link 16, a military tactical data exchange network used by NATO and allied nations, allows military aircraft, ships and ground forces to exchange tactical information securely in near real-time. Link 22 is primarily maritime and complements Link 16.

The Saab 9LV Combat Management System will be upgraded as part of the order. The 9LV is used by  naval forces as command and control centre for surface vessels and submarines.
