Saab to continue Swedish ATM support
Saab will continue its work on the Swedish armed force’s Systems Support for Air Traffic and Airbase Systems 2011-2012 programme, it was announced on 20 December. Sweden’s Defence Procurement Agency (FMV) has taken up an option of the earlier contract signed in September 2011.
The new option will see Saab carry out continued systems and integration work on equipment for Air Traffic Management in the Swedish armed forces. It includes Saab’s continued adaptation of the SIGMA product family for military Air Traffic Management.
Development of SIGMA began in 1992, and since then SIGMA has been sold to both military and civil customers. The product is currently an important part of Saab’s offering in Air Traffic Management.
Johan Ohlson, head of product area security and traffic management, said: ‘Among other things the contract includes continued adaptation of Saab’s SIGMA product family for military Air Traffic Management. Over time, this means that Swedish military control-towers will acquire extremely advanced equipment that meets the highest international standards’.
The total order value for this option comes to about 152 MSEK, and the project will run over the period 2013-2015.
