Long-term partnership and presence
Our relationship with India began in the 1970s with the selection and supply of the Carl-Gustaf ground combat system for the Indian Army. Saab’s Integrated Defensive Aids Suite (IDAS) has been chosen by HAL to be the essential self-protection system for the Advanced Light Helicopter (Dhruv). Both these programmes are in series manufacturing and have received multiple production orders.
Our air traffic management solutions are in use every hour across India providing safe travel at 11 different airports including all the major hubs. Our maritime traffic management expertise is also well-established, with India’s entire national Automatic Identification System (AIS) network built on Saab equipment.
We have cemented partnerships across India’s state-controlled and privately-owned defence sector together with AAI, BEL, HAL, OFB, Tech Mahindra and others. We maintain several critical design and manufacturing capabilities in India including software development, commercial aerostructures, camouflage and signature management.
Our proven track record of partnership and presence in India makes Saab the best choice for future strategic technology cooperation in fields such as combat air systems, ground combat, radars and underwater technology.
