Saab wins MSEK 210 order for anti-ship missile system on Visby-class
corvettes

Saab has won an order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration
(FMV) to adapt and integrate a planning and combat management system for
the RBS15 on the Visby-class corvette. The contract is worth MSEK 210.

"We are very proud to be entrusted with this integration by the FMV. It
will mean greater flexibility for the future and for coming
installations of anti-ship missile systems," says Gunnar Språng of Saab
Bofors Dynamics.

The order is a supplement to a previous project to integrate missiles on
weapon decks. It is the final stage in installing RBS15 as the
operational anti-ship missile system on the Swedish Navy's new Visby-
class stealth corvettes.

For the first time the planning and combat management system for RBS15
is also being integrated with the 9LV CETRIS command and control system
through a newly developed man-machine interface.

Work on the contract will be carried out at Saab Bofors Dynamics in
Linköping and at SaabTech in Järfälla, Stockholm.

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.
