Saab receives training radio system order
Saab will deliver a new radio system to the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) under an $11 million order announced on 22 November.
The radio system will increase the Swedish armed forces’ capabilities in training and simulation. The system provides the ability to conduct larger military manoeuvres and multi-national training with international partners, including the other Nordic countries, most NATO nations in Europe, and with the US Army in Europe.
The radio system transfers data to and from each individual soldier and vehicle to a training command centre where data on positioning and status for each simulator system are summarised for evaluation.
The delivery includes mobile base stations and radio systems for vehicles and soldiers.
Deliveries on the order are scheduled to take place during 2017.
