Saab has received an order from the Swedish Defence Material Administration to support and upgrade military integrated air traffic control (i-ATC) components and integrate a number of systems in its air traffic control towers, the company announced on 10 December.
A number of military facilities across the country will receive support and upgrades under the $15.24 million order. An upgraded ATS-simulator is also included in the contract.

‘This order strengthens the safety for our customer’s unique situation with both military and civilian air traffic at the same airports. I’m proud to have the customer's trust to continue the existing roadmap for these advanced airport control towers.’
Delivery will take place during 2019-2021.
