AerotechTelub has received two orders from the Defence Materiel
Administration for maintenance equipment for the JAS 39 Gripen. The
delivery of the equipment will take place successively with the final
delivery during 2004.
The orders include both development of new maintenance equipment and
supplements to already existing maintenance equipment for the mechanics
and electronics in the aircraft. AerotechTelub has developed advanced
automatic test equipment for the testing of different complex systems.
This test equipment means that functional tests can be carried out with
high security and that the turnaround times for systems on service can
be kept short.
The Gripen has a high development potential and is continually developed
in order to meet new requirements. Examples of such requirements are the
ability to operate internationally in peacekeeping missions. New
operational capabilities mean new or modified systems in the aircraft
and thereby new requirements for maintenance equipment.
The work on the maintenance equipment will be conducted in Arboga and
AerotechTelub is a service company which offers qualified technical
services, maintenance and customer-adapted system solutions within

military and civil defence, government departments and public
authorities as well as selected sectors of trade and industry.
