The first Systems Rig (S-Rig) Gripen development simulator has been installed at the Gripen Design and Development Network (GDDN) in Gavião Peixoto, Brazil, Saab announced on 25 November.

The new simulator is part of a technology transfer programme for the new Brazilian fighter under a partnership between Saab, Embraer, Atech, AEL Sistemas and the Brazilian Air Force (FAB).

The S-Rig will give the GDDN greater autonomy to conduct more development projects in Brazil. The simulator will be used for development tests and for verification of systems and sub-systems of Gripen in Brazil, especially of systems developed at the GDDN. It will also test the functionalities of equipment produced elsewhere by other Brazilian partner companies of the programme, and support the activities of the Gripen Flight Test Center that is to be installed at the GDDN in 2020.

The simulator platform enable Brazilian companies to acquire the technological expertise and advanced operations of simulators, while also supporting modern fighter development.

The FAB signed a contract to acquire the Gripen in October 2014. The first Brazilian Gripen aircraft was delivered to start the flight test programme in Sweden in September.
