SaabTech Electronic's countermeasures dispensers ordered for the EF 2000
Eurofighter

SaabTech Electronics, a business unit of Saab AB, has been awarded an
order for Electronic Warfare equipment for the EF 2000 Eurofighter
aircraft. An initial order for 300 BOL countermeasures dispensers, valued
at MSEK 135 (£10-million), has been placed by Flight Refuelling Ltd,
England, and may later be increased to 1200 units. Delivery is planned to
start at the end of next year.

The EF2000 Eurofighter is being developed by a consortium of companies
from the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain and Italy. "It is unique and very
flattering that a company from a country outside the consortium should
receive an order like this", says Kaj Gothlund, SaabTech Electronic's
Marketing Manager for BOL in Britain.

BOL is a chaff and flare dispenser for aircraft self-protection currently
used mainly against radar-directed gun or missile threats. The elongated
dispenser houses a long stack of payload packs that are fed
electromechanically towards the rear of the dispenser and released into
the airstream to create large clouds of chaff or of an IR-radiating decoy
source. BOL is currently in use with seven European air forces and the US
Navy.

Saab is northern Europe's leading high technology company, mainly active
in the defence, aviation and space industry, and offers advanced products
and systems based on sophisticated information technology. The business
areas within Saab are Infomatics, Aerospace, Dynamics, Technical Support
and Services, Space and Aviation Services.
