  • The Czech Air Force has been a Gripen user for 15 years. When Gripen entered service with the Czech Air Force in 2005, it replaced old Russian technology. Within just a couple of years, the Czech Air Force did not just start to use a new type of aircraft; they started using a completely new system as well as adapting to a new way of working.

Within just a couple of years, the Czech Air Force did not just start to use a new type of aircraft; they started using a completely new system as well as adapting to a new way of working. This only hints at how remarkable the capability enhancement within the Air Force was, and how it has continued to progress ever since.   

     
  • Great collaboration makes great aircraft

    The first Swedish Gripen E aircraft flies side by side with the first Brazilian Gripen. It’s much more than a beautiful image, it’s a sign of a great collaboration between the countries and between the air forces and industry.

    The first Swedish Gripen E aircraft flies side by side with the first Brazilian Gripen. It’s much more than a beautiful image, it’s a sign of a great collaboration between the countries and between the air forces and industry. Here the Commander of the Swedish Air Force Major General Carl-Johan Edström gives his view of the collaboration and the importance of a fighter that not only beats the opponents of today but also remains operational for decades.

     
  • When it comes to naval sensors, we believe more is more

     |  Berättelse

    By combining different sensors in a single solution, Saab's Sea Giraffe Multi Sensor Solution provides naval forces with the ability to detect threats regardless of size, speed, shape and sophistication.

    A naval warship is a powerful asset. But without the right means to detect, classify and counter today’s advanced threats, even the most powerful surface combatant will be vulnerable. To meet this challenge, Saab has developed the Sea Giraffe Multi Sensor Solution. By combining different sensors in a single solution, it provides naval forces with the ability to detect threats regardless of size, speed, shape and sophistication.

     
  • After months of training, Major Aviator Cristiano de Oliveira Peres, test pilot at the Brazilian Air Force, completed the important mission of being the first Brazilian pilot to fly the first Brazilian Gripen E.

  • Saab will, together with the companies ORBCOMM and AAC Clyde Space, lead a groundbreaking Swedish space project; to develop space based communication for the maritime sector via the new automatic tracking standard, VDES. The new VDES package does not only enable safer, more sustainable and greener shipping but the technology also has spin-off potential for other industries.

  • Outsmarting threats by electronic attack

     |  Berättelse

    A fighter aircraft on a mission operates in an environment full of threats, such as air and ground based radars and infrared- (IR) or radar-guided missiles. The aircraft is equipped with systems that enable the crew to complete their mission successfully and ensure they can return safely to the base. We are talking about the electronic warfare system.

  • Enabling air superiority from the ground

     |  Berättelse

    The threat from small, slow and low flying drones, short-range missiles and guided munitions is growing rapidly and you need short-range air defence to acquire the time and tools to detect them. 

    The ground combat environment is rapidly changing. While traditional air defence systems and strategies have been focusing on providing long-range capabilities against threats such as fighter jets and supersonic missiles, todays’ new, agile and equally dangerous short-range threats have not been addressed.

     
  • A submarine in space

     |  Berättelse

    It's not really as crazy as it sounds to compare these two, a submarine and a spacecraft. There are many areas where parallels can be drawn between the challenges of sea depths and weightlessness outside the Earth's atmosphere. Submarines and space crafts also have one basic thing in common; they place extreme demand on design and manufacturing. Building submarines is second to space industry.

  • A torpedo for tomorrow’s needs

     |  Berättelse

    With naval warfare rapidly evolving, today's armed forces need torpedoes that are both easy to control and highly adaptable. Saab´s new torpedo system now under development for the toughest environment in the world, the Baltic Sea, addresses these key challenges.

  • TactiCall – all systems in one interface

     |  Berättelse

    What weighs almost 30.000 tonnes, is ready to travel across the globe and carries, fuel, ordinance, equipment and state of the art hospital facilities? The answer is, the Norwegian Navy’s new support vessel KNM Maud, currently based in Bergen, Norway. She is equipped with the integrated communications system TactiCall from Saab.
