Saab RBS15 to be installed on Finnish Hamina

Saab Bofors Dynamics has received an order from the Finnish Naval
Headquarters to install the Missile Engagement Planning System (MEPS)
for RBS15SFIII on the new Fast Attack Crafts
of Hamina class.

The order is an addition to the on-going program between Saab Bofors
Dynamics and the Finnish Naval Headquarters which includes service-life
extension and performance upgrade of the Finnish Navy's RBS15 missiles.
The program gives the Finnish Navy a customised state-of-the-art RBS15
missile denominated RBS15SFIII. Deliveries of upgraded missiles started
in October 2003 and will continue until 2005.

The RBS15 has been in service with the Finnish Navy since the end of the
80ies and this additional order to install the MEPS for RBS15SFIII on
the new Fast Attack Crafts of Hamina class is once again a sign of
confidence in the Swedish system.

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.
