Saab brings high technology solutions and systems to the 7th Mostra BID
Saab will be at the 7th Mostra BID, on December 6-8, at the Ulysses Guimarães Convention Centre in Brasilia (DF). The event is part of the annual calendar of security and defence industries in Brazil and international delegations.
This year, visitors will be able to receive more information about Saab's vast portfolio and high-tech solutions for the most diverse defence missions in the naval, land and air sectors.
"We are very proud to be a strategic partner to Brazil. The year 2022 was an important one for Saab. We have made great progress in the Brazilian Gripen Programme. Now, at the Mostra BID, we expect to expand our business and talk about the new needs of the Armed Forces, which can be met with our expertise. We continue in the mission to support the Forces that protect national sovereignty and the population," said Marianna Silva, Saab's General Director for Latin America.
At the 7th edition of the event, the company will highlight its training and live simulation offer that brings to military exercises a realistic environment, with only the shooting simulated by laser beam. The systems of training and live simulation (Force-on-Force) are used by the Brazilian Armed Forces for almost two decades, in the East Training Centre (CA-Leste), in Rio de Janeiro (RJ), and in the South Training Centre (CA-Sul), in Santa Maria (RS).
It will also be possible to learn more about the RBS 70, a Remote Controlled Low Altitude Missile System used in more than 20 countries and that was acquired by the Brazilian Army in 2014 and participated in important operations in the country, such as the security of the 2014 Fifa World Cup and the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Comint (Communication Intelligence) is another solution that will be showcased. The integrated system for reconnaissance tasks and electromagnetic spectrum monitoring is suitable for strategic and tactical applications. This is Saab's main solution in Sisfron - the border monitoring integration system.
For the naval sector, the MCMV mine countermeasures ship is the company's proposal to meet current maritime challenges. Besides it, sophisticated and reliable underwater vehicles make up Saab's portfolio, such as the Double Eagle, which combines advanced technology with impressive efficiency to detect, classify, identify and deactivate mines.
Another very versatile solution, which can be used in land and sea forces, is one of the most advanced three-dimensional air defence radar systems in the world, the Giraffe 1X.
Also at the BID Show, visitors will see up close the F-39 Gripen full-size replica. The fighter was chosen by the Brazilian government to equip the Brazilian Air Force under a contract for the development and production of 36 aircraft, including systems, support and equipment, as well as an extensive technology transfer programme that promotes the development of the local aeronautical industry.
Saab will be at stand 51/52, Asa Oeste, where executives will be available to provide all necessary information on the solutions presented.
