Saab awarded avionics contract for the A400M military transport aircraft

Saab Avitronics has received a contract for development, production and support of a Terrain Masking Low Level Flight Computer for the A400M military transport aircraft. The contract is worth an amount in the range greater than 10 Million EURO depending on the aircraft sales.

"We are proud of being selected as a supplier to the advanced Airbus aircraft A400M. We now further strengthen our position as a competitive supplier on the avionics market”, says Björn Erman, President of Saab Avitronics.

The Terrain Masking Low Level Flight Computer, based on the very latest processor technology, is an essential part of the Terrain Masking Low Level Flight System for the German A400M fleet. The system enables safe tactical flights on very low altitude.

The development and production of the Flight Computer will be carried out at Saab Avitronics in Jönköping, Sweden, and will be supplied to EADS Military Air Systems, Germany, that develops the system application software.
