Polish Navy acquires Saab RBS 15

Saab Bofors Dynamics has signed a contract with Thales Netherland B.V.
for the RBS 15 missile AD system to be mounted on Polish naval vessels.
The contract is valued at circa 10 million EUROs.

Thales were appointed Prime Contractor, and during the summer they
signed a contract with Naval Shipyard Gydinia for the upgrading of the
three ORKAN class vessels in the Polish Navy. Among other things, the
upgrading programme comprises the Thales' "TACTICOS" Combat Control
System, Ericsson Microwave Systems' "Giraffe" 3D radar and RBS 15.

The contract enters in to force when a separate counter-trade agreement
has been signed with the Polish authorities.
- The task of realising this is well underway, and we hope that it will
be completed during September.

Negotiations between the Polish Navy and Saab Bofors Dynamics' co-
operation partner MESKO regarding missiles are now being started-up and
are expected to be finalised before the end of the year.

Saab is one of the world's leading high-technology companies, with its
main operations focusing on defence, aviation and space. The group
covers a broad spectrum of competence and capability in systems
integration.
