Saab awarded flight safety equipment work
Saab has signed an agreement with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) regarding the maintenance of technical system support for flight safety equipment, the company announced on 16 March.
The total value of the agreement including options amounts to $14.33 million. The agreement is for three years from 2018-2020, with an option for a further two years, along with an option for support in the event of crisis or war.
During the agreement period, FMV and the Swedish armed forces can request services based on the prerequisites for each individual mission.
Saab will perform both preventive and corrective maintenance on either aircraft-specific or person-borne equipment, including emergency transponders and various types of personal flotation devices. The agreement also includes technical services in the form of investigations, trial and testing operations and technical information.
