Saab Systems has received an order from FMV, the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration, to modernize the command and control systems on Sweden’s Gotland and Södermanland class submarines.
The order means that Saab Systems will be able to deliver next generation marine control systems adapted to future demands on network based defense.
The systems are called SESUB 960 and in addition to command and control systems the order also includes solutions for navigation, sensor management and weapons handling. Alongside the on-board systems, the order also encompasses a crew training facility on land.
“SESUB 960 is a cost-effective system developed in close collaboration with the FMV, and is part of the ongoing evolution of Saab’s command and control system program for the Swedish Armed Forces. The order will contribute to the continued development of Saab Systems’ world-leading expertise in command and control systems,” says Dan-Åke Enstedt, President and Managing Director of Saab Systems.
