Dan Jangblad to become manager of Business Development within Saab


In recent years Saab has gradually stepped up its efforts to support the
defence forces in its reorganisation into a network-based defence system
(NCW). Full implementation of NCW requires integration of systems across
the traditional dividing lines in the defence system, but also to
adjoining civil operations. This also requires increased co-operation
between the various operations within Saab.


"Saab is in an excellent position to be a competitive supplier of
integrated systems of this kind at high system levels and we are now
making even greater efforts to make sure that we can meet the defence
forces' needs and requirements," says Bengt Halse, President and CEO.

Also in areas other than NCW, deals are being done in an "integrated"
way with several of Saab's operations that are involved via the business
area divisions. A more collected group perspective and closer
collaboration between the various parts of Saab are required in order to
deal with this situation.

As of 01 09 2002 Saab is therefore creating a new group function,
"Business Development", in order to develop business that involves the
entire group, including the NCW work.

Dan Jangblad, currently General Manager of the Saab Systems and
Electronics business area, will be managing this function and he is
therefore leaving his post as director of this business area.

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