AerotechTelub delivers technical training system for Gripen

AerotechTelub has received a strategically important order from the
Defence Materiel Administration for a technical training system for the
JAS 39 Gripen. The order value is close to SEK27M. The delivery of the
system will take place successively with the final delivery during 2004.

The development will be carried out together with Saab Aerospace. The
work will be conducted primarily in Arboga and Linköping, but parts of
it will also be conducted in Örebro.

- The order is strategically very important since one of the primary
criteria in the Defence Materiel Administration's selection process has
been that it shall be possible to adapt the system to other technical
systems within the Swedish defence. We see great possibilities for
several assignments for other systems as well, such as helicopters,
combat vehicles and naval systems, says Lars-Erik Wige, Division Manager
at AerotechTelub.

- The order further strengthens the Saab Group's position as supplier of
training and support systems to the Swedish defence, says Stefan Storm,
Business Unit Manager at AerotechTelub in Arboga

The training system, called GMS (General Modular Simulation system),
will be used for the technical training on airport systems within the
Swedish defence. The system will be based on a general development and
communication platform that has been developed by AerotechTelub. The
platform is used today by the Swedish defence, for example in the
tactical support systems for Gripen and Viggen as well as in the
development of corresponding systems for Helikopter 14.

AerotechTelub is a service company which offers qualified technical
services, maintenance and customer-adapted system solutions within
information technology, electronics and aviation technology for the
