Saab signs UK counter-IED contract extension
Saab has announced that it has signed a two year extension for the Collective Counter- Improvised Explosive Device Trainer (CCT) managed service with the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD). The order, announced 16 March 2012, amounts to £ 11.1 million (app. 125 million kronor).
According to Saab, the extension will ensure that UK military personnel continue to receive the very best C-IED live training capabilities in the UK and abroad. By closely simulating IED events in training, individuals and groups can better react and detect the IED.
Saab has supported C-IED training for all UK personnel deploying on operations in Afghanistan since November 2010. In addition Saab provides instrumented live simulation for UK MOD training exercises in Kenya,Canada and the UK mainland.
