Saab wins MSEK 150 order for fire control system

Saab Systems has won an order from Alvis Hägglunds/Patria for the UTAAS
fire control system. The order is worth MSEK 150 and is a continuation
of a previous order of UTAAS for the Finnish Army's CV9030 Combat
Vehicles.

"This order consolidates our position as one of the leading suppliers of
fire control systems for tanks and armored vehicles," says Thomas Kloos,
Sales Director of Land Systems at Saab Systems.

UTAAS (Universal Tank and Anti Aircraft System) is a modular integrated
sight and fire control system for tanks and armored vehicles. UTAAS
offers direct fire capability, which means that the gunner can take aim
independently of the vehicle's movements while the fire control system
automatically aligns the gun. The result is that firing can begin sooner
than with conventional target alignment, a crucial advantage in most
combat situations. Saab Systems has over 50 years' experience of
developing and manufacturing advanced optical sights, working with the
very latest night vision technology. Over 800 systems have been sold to
Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Finland and other markets.
