Saab has signed a performance based logistics (PBL) contract with South Korea’s Defence Acquisition Program Administration to support its Arthur weapon locating systems, the company announced on 24 September.

The PBL contract includes spare parts supply and support for the Republic of Korea Army and Marine Corps. The contract, valued at approximately $56.76 million will run 2018-2023.

South Korea deploys Saab’s Arthur weapon-locating radar system to detect incoming enemy artillery 24/7 and gives an enhanced 90 second warning of incoming fire. Arthur has the ability to rapidly detect incoming artillery fire and can calculate the firing site and point of impact, enabling effective counter-fire within a few seconds.

Saab made the first delivery of Arthur systems to South Korea in 2009 and has had annual support contracts for these systems in place since 2012.
