Saab supplies Nordic Battle Group’s helicopter detachment with communications network

Saab Communication has signed an agreement with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration for the delivery of a communications network with command and control functions for the Nordic Battle Group’s helicopter detachment. This is the latest contract in a series of deliveries by Saab of qualified transportable and mobile communications solutions for Nordic Battle Group.

“The contract is yet more evidence that our products meet the customer’s requirements and we are looking for more co-workers within systems design and project management to reinforce our ongoing and future customer projects,” says Ulf Campner, Divisional manager Saab Communication.

The recruitments that are relevant and where there is a need are systems designers, systems engineers, technology consultants, mechanical designers and project managers at our sites in Arboga, Kista, Växjö and Linköping.

The system that will be delivered is a transportable, modular design and can be configured to fit in with the Armed Forces’ reaction organisation. Saab delivers, in a very short time, a turn key solution including communications networks, command and control functions, user equipment and power supply systems, the last of which is supplied by Saab Aerotech.

The communications network will be the platform to cover the connection requirements that the helicopter detachment has regarding radio, telephony and data for communication, command and collaboration with military and civil systems.

Saab has previously had a number of contracts with, and deliveries to, the Nordic Battle Group, such as installation and integration of 23 containers for Communications and Command and Control systems Airbase, Command and control installation in tracked vehicles and installation of Command and control/connection containers.

Saab supplies mobile communications solutions for crisis management and international operations. Customers include the Swedish and Norwegian Armed Forces and the Swedish National Civil Aviation Authority. The mobile communications solutions that Saab supplies to airbases, camps, garrisons and rescue organisations are scaleable, configurable and transportable to meet the requirements regarding mobility in international crises and deployments.

Saab Communication, part of the Saab Group, offers qualified communication services and robust tele-, data- and radio communications solutions for the defence and civil security areas – nationally and internationally.
