Saab Training Systems receives order worth MSEK 628

The British Ministry of Defence (MoD) has awarded Saab Training Systems,
Huskvarna, Sweden, a contract to support the existing Direct Fire Weapon
Effects Simulators (DFWES) used at Salisbury Plain, UK, at British Army
Training Unit Suffield, Canada and at Sennelager, Germany. The contract
value is approximately MSEK 628 (MGBP 42,5).

"We see this contract award as the result of seven years of excellent
past performance and the partnering spirit between Saab and MoD", says
Johan Ohlson, president of Saab Training Systems.

This latest contract, starting on 1 April 2002, comprises a turn-key
arrangement at a firm price from Saab Training Systems where full
responsibility is taken to ensure that the equipment is available at all
times for a period of 8 years. It has built-in mechanisms for phasing in
known and unknown platforms and applications which may increase the
contract value.

The DFWES equipments, based on Saab BT46 laser simulators, were
delivered by Saab Training Systems between 1994 and 2001 and Saab has
been responsible for their on-site support since 1995.

The MoD, using innovative ideas, further increases the training value by
improving availability and decreasing costs by issuing this long-term
contract with substantial savings and built-in incentives for Saab
Training Systems to reduce costs and spend-to-save when appropriate.

The DFWES systems have allowed the British Army to increase military
Force and Unit operational combat effectiveness, increase training
effectiveness of combat manoeuvres and increase personnel skills,
motivation, and confidence. They are built on the world wide recognised
high fidelity BT 46 equipment delivered by Saab Training Systems to many
countries.

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 capabilities in systems
integration.
