Saab signs an extension to a support contract with the British Army
Saab has signed an extension to a support contract with the British Army.
The contract, worth $22 million, covers the maintenance and support of delivered training systems used by British Army and implementation of the OSAG 2.0 laser code.
This contract is an extension of an existing support contract which enables the British Army to conduct realistic combined arms training on the training areas in UK, Canada and Germany. Saab will provide the service for a period of two years.
'We will continue to support our delivered training systems, which through continued upgrades in close co-operation between Saab and the UK Army, meet the customers need of high performance training. The implementation of OSAG 2.0 is a strategic decision, which will make it easier for the British Army to train together with other nations,' says Henrik Höjer, general manager Training & Simulation at Saab.
The extended contract also includes the implementation of OSAG 2.0, a new international standard for optical laser codes, that will enable the British Army to be interoperable with other nation’s laser based Tactical Engagement Simulator Systems during joint exercises around the world.
