Saab Ericsson Space and ALCATEL signs Long Term Agreement for Spacebus
Primary Satellite Structures

Saab Ericsson Space AB in Gothenburg, Sweden, and ALCATEL have signed a
Long Term Agreement covering Spacebus 3000 and Spacebus 4000 Primary
Satellite Structures

- This is our first agreement with ALCATEL covering this product. We are
very pleased to conclude that the qualification testing covering
extended capabilities of both the SB3000B3 and SB4000C1 has been
successfully completed in Linköping, says Jörgen Remmelg, General
Manager of the Mechanical Products Division at Saab Ericsson Space. An
ALCATEL and Saab Ericsson Space Integrated Product Team has done great
job in developing a product that will maximize the end customer value,
adds Remmelg.

The Long Term Agreement covers the development and production of the
SB3000B3 and SB4000C1 primary satellite structure (Central Cylinder) for
a given time period with an option for extension. The Central Cylinder,
made primarily out of Carbon Fiber, is manufactured and assembled at the
Saab and Saab Ericsson Space plant in Linköping/Sweden. The central
cylinder is delivered to ALCATEL/Cannes for assembly of the Satellite
Service Module.

Satellite Structures is one of Saab Ericsson Space's key products.
Together with the Payload Adapters and the Separation Systems this
compiles the primary load path from the launcher upper stage and up,
resulting in a very optimized system.

Saab Ericsson Space is an international, independent supplier of space
equipment. The company's main products are computers, microwave
electronics and antennas for spacecraft and adapters and separation
systems for launchers. The company has its headquarters in Gothenburg,
Sweden, a division located in Linköping, Sweden, and subsidiaries in

Ericsson Space has approximately 530 employees. The company is jointly
owned by Saab and Ericsson.
