Saab Training Systems awarded new SEK 100 million contract for the
British Army

Saab Training Systems, Huskvarna, Sweden has been awarded a contract
worth SEK 100 million, exclusive of options and support, by the Raytheon-
Lockheed Martin Javelin Joint Venture (USA).

The development of the Saab BT46 JAVELIN laser simulator is a joint
effort between Saab Training Systems and the Raytheon-Lockheed Martin
Javelin Joint Venture, who is the prime contractor for delivery of the
complete JAVELIN Combat Weapon and Training system to the British Army.

"This order is a major break through since it for the first time will
take us outside the current DFWES training areas and into the various
Home Regiments around Great Britain. It will also further strengthen our
position as a partner when industries provide the armies with complete
weapon and training solutions", says Johan Ohlson, President, Saab
Training Systems AB.

The Saab BT46 JAVELIN simulator is a key training component in the
JAVELIN Programme and will provide the realism required for the user
when training his proficiency in firing and operating skills in an
outdoor and tactical environment. It will also be used together with the
legacy training system DFWES (Direct Fire Weapon Effect Simulator),
supplied and operated by Saab Training Systems, in the UK, Germany and
Canada.
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.

Saab Training Systems develops, manufactures and markets advanced
military training equipment such as laser simulator systems,
instrumented training systems and target equipment, and provides service
and maintenance for delivered systems.
