UK Land Digitisation work for Saab Training Systems

Saab Training Systems is working with the UK MOD to Incorporate the
changes in the UK TES vehicle systems as a result of the introduction of
the BOWMAN radio system.

The Saab BT46 equipment used in the TES environment under the Direct
Fire Weapon Effects Simulation (DFWES) programme will be updated to be
compatible with the new digital radio system being introduced across the
British Army from 2004.

- A very strategic contract that proves that the UK MoD has high
confidence in our company as a systems integrator, says Johan Ohlson,
President, Saab Training Systems.

This major upgrade by Saab Training Systems will ensure that the British
Army can continue force on force training in a digitised environment.
The upgrade features many improvements including enhanced audio messages
to the vehicle crews as well as it opens up for future enhancements into
the DFWES programme.

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.
