Saab Partners with LaserDYNE Technologies
Saab has selected Queensland-based company LaserDYNE Technologies as a key supplier for the Australian Army Land 400 programme, and for export opportunities worldwide.
LaserDYNE Technologies will supply its RangePRO laser transceiver as a key subsystem within the Saab Universal Sight and Fire-Control System (UTAAS) offered with the AMV35 vehicle.
“Engagement with Australian industry is a key part of Saab’s long-term commitment to Australia and the selection of LaserDYNE as a key supplier for UTAAS is the first of a number of opportunities for Australian businesses that we are exploring within the Saab global supply chain,” says Andy Keough, Managing Director of Saab Australia.
“Our company is pleased and proud to be selected by Saab as the supplier-of-choice for the laser transceiver in the Saab UTAAS system. This selection gives LaserDYNE the opportunity to supply Australian-designed, developed and manufactured technology product into export markets. We look forward to working with Saab and providing our unique, advanced digital range-finding technology into such current programmes as Land 400,” said Tim White, CEO of LaserDYNE Technologies.
Saab’s UTAAS is a versatile sight and fire-control system for tanks and combat vehicles. It provides high hit probability against all ground targets, helicopters and fast-moving aircraft. Today the UTAAS is in service in Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Finland, the Netherlands, Estonia and Denmark, all with the BAE Systems’ Combat Vehicle 90 (CV90).
