Saab Systems has won an order worth MSEK 164 to develop and deliver SLB – Stridsledning Bataljon, the Army’s tactical C2 system. The system will be developed with the Swedish Armed Forces and the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration, and is a new battle management system for commanding units up to battalion level.
In the longer term SLB will form the basis of Sweden’s tactical military command and control systems, and will not only be used in the mechanized units but also in amphibian battalions, air base battalions and EU Battle Groups.
“This is a tremendously important order for us,” says Peter Wimmerström, head of Air & Land Systems at Saab Systems. “It is a long-term undertaking for the Swedish Armed Forces and the next generation network based systems, and puts us in a strong position on the world market.”
