Gripen´s advanced radio system ensures good employment capacity

Gripen´s advanced radio system ensures good employment capacity The Defence Matériel Administration has placed an order with AerotechTelub for continued consultancy services worth closer to SEK 10M within the aircraft radio area. The assignment means that AerotechTelub has been given continued confidence for work within TARAS, TActical RAdio System that will be introduced into the Swedish Air Force and be used in, among others, the JAS39 Gripen. Certain parts of the tactical radio system, Radio 90, are technically speaking, among the world's most advanced radio systems for military aircraft communication. - This order that is a continuation of previous assignments, will engage some 15 engineers, says business unit manager Jan Lindström. Our work consists of technical investigations and analyses of the liaison system. Today, there are altogether some 35 people within AerotechTelub who work with TARAS and the number is expected to increase during the year. TARAS will, in the long term, replace present radio systems that came into use during the 1960's. The ability to control and communicate with JAS39 Gripen will thereby be enhanced.
