Saab Training Systems signs 100 million SEK key contracts with UK
Ministry of Defence

Saab Training Systems has been awarded two contracts from the UK
Ministry of Defence; UK Land Digitisation Work and BGTI Work (Battle
Group Thermal Imager).

The UK Land Digitisation work contract includes the update of previously
delivered Saab BT 46 simulator systems to be compatible with the British
Army new digital radio system BOWMAN, a system that will provide secure
tactical combat communications for UK land, air and littoral operations.
Delivery will take place mid 2004.

The contract for BGTI Work includes an integration of the simulator
system with the new BGTI (Battle Group Thermal Imager) sight that will
be introduced on Warrior and Scimitar vehicles from 2004.

- As the customer invests in new modern technology it is important that
the training environment develops with it. This order proves again that
our equipment has its special role in training of the British Army, says
Johan Ohlson, President, Saab Training Systems.

The upgrade features several improvements with respect to realism,
thermal and night capability. It will also provide an eye safe laser
range finder and open up the possibility of future enhancements to
DFWES.

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.
