    More than a missile

    The littoral environment is unyielding terrain, which poses numerous dangers – such as confinement, clutter and adverse weather. Couple this with recent advances in technology, and it is clear we are facing ever-evolving and increasingly complex conflict scenarios in these environments. Forces must adapt or lose valuable people and assets.

  • Gripen's smart support solution

     |  Berättelse

    Being a country with small and very limited resources, but at the same time located in a strategic place and hence vulnerable, it soon became apparent that something very special was required to mitigate the threats within available resource limits. The Swedish Government, defence forces and Saab managed to agree on some basic requirements that would apply to all aircraft designed and produced; requirements that are as valid today as it was in 1937.

    Gripen is a unique fighter system, bringing a perfect balance between performance and cost-efficiency. Throughout design and construction, Saab has ensured that Gripen is easy to service and repair, making it possible to offer moderate operational and maintenance costs that no other aircraft comes close to matching. The story of Gripen’s smart support solution dates back more than 80 years.
