Advanced support systems for Gripen
and Viggen to be further developed

JAS39 Gripen's advanced planning and evaluation system together with the
training system for the Viggen fighter aircraft are to be further
developed by AerotechTelub.

Modern, complex fighter aircraft demand advanced computer-based ground
systems for the planning and evaluation of every air sortie. These
systems are an important part of the training of new pilots and for the
Air Force's tactical development.
For the planning of air sorties, a system called PLA, Planning and
Analysis is used, that has primarily been developed by AerotechTelub.
For the evaluation and analysis of air sorties with JAS39 Gripen, a very
advanced system called UTA is used for the purpose. UTA stands for
Utbildning Taktisk Analys (Training Tactical Analysis) developed by
AerotechTelub.

"The Defence Matériel Administration has now given us the confidence to
further develop these tools" says business unit manager Stefan Storm.

"In addition, we have been given the assignment to produce a further
generation of the training system UTB that reproduces flights as they
can be seen in the JA37 Viggen. The system is used for e.g, instruction
and demonstration for students, reproduction and evaluation of student
and pilot performances, the learning of system functions together with
the processing of data and generation of reports".

The order is for SEK 18M with an option of a further SEK 13M.
