Saab Training Systems conducts the final system test on schedule for the
first turnkey Combat Training Centre

The Royal Netherlands Army (RNLA) and Saab Training Systems in close
cooperation will perform the final system test for the Mobile Combat
Training Centre (MCTC). This significant event will be completed during
December 2002, at the Training Site Vogelsang in Germany, on time and
according to the originally contracted schedule.

The achievement has been possible due to the excellent cooperation
between the RNLA and Saab Training Systems on this ground-breaking
military programme. Saab Training Systems is proud to achieve this
important milestone on schedule and both partners see this as a great
start for a successful 15 year relationship.

The RNLA awarded Saab Training Systems, Huskvarna Sweden, the contract
in June 2000, for a Mobile Combat Training Centre (MCTC), with
deliveries beginning in 2001. The contract value was over 560 million
Swedish kronor. The MCTC system will allow the RNLA to conduct both
realistic exercises and analyse the performance of each and every
participant, factors that are vital in the maintenance of operational
effectiveness.

The final systems tests in Vogelsang will be a RNLA company-level
exercise including acceptance tests integrated with military procedures
in a fully operational environment. Operational use of the MCTC system
will commence with the formal handover to the Royal Netherlands Army in
April 2003.

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.
