Saab to continue Gripen support
Saab has signed a $217.98 million contract with the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) for the continued support and maintenance of Gripen C/D aircraft, the company announced on 31 May.
The contract will be effective from June 2017 to December 2019.
The agreement covers design and support, component maintenance, spare parts, provision of logistics and procurement of certain equipment. In addition, the contract also allows for the requisition of technical system support, aircraft maintenance with associated spare parts and obsolescence management.
Torsten Öhman, acting head of the support and services business area within Saab, said: ‘This contract will ensure effective Gripen C/D operation and availability for the coming years. Our support solutions contribute to Gripen's low life-cycle cost and provide the Swedish armed forces and other Gripen customers with the most effective means by which to sustain their aircraft.’
