Saab has been awarded a contract by the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) for product support and maintenance of the Swedish Navy's underwater weapon systems, the company announced on 28 February.

The contract, valued $26 million, allows the FMV to place orders for product support and maintenance of underwater weapon systems between 2017 and 2019. It comes under a Letter of Intent signed between Saab and FMV in 2014 that supports the Swedish armed forces' underwater capabilities for the period 2015-2024.

Anne-Marie Vösu, head of Saab's underwater systems unit, said: 'This contract secures the availability of operational weapon systems for the Swedish Navy. We will plan for and conduct necessary measures to keep the systems ready whenever the customer needs.

'The contract is a proof of the customer's trust in our knowledge and expertise within the underwater domain, and it is an important foundation for our continuing business.'
