Saab at FIDAE 2016

Defence and security company Saab is proud to attend FIDAE from March 29th to April 3rd 2016. At the show Saab will demonstrate how its advanced technology and innovative thinking are keeping people and society in Latin America safe.

A centerpiece at the show will of course be the Gripen E fighter in a full-scale model located on the outdoor area. Gripen is a true multi-role fighter aircraft that has the operational range, payload and built-in net centric warfare capabilities to meet all roles as defined. The opportunities on the world market have been solidified and expanded, following the orders from Sweden and Brazil.

This year FIDAE is the major exhibition for the aerospace and defence industry in Latin America and an event of great strategic importance for Saab. The region is a dynamic market where Saab sees great opportunities across all of its domains.

“Throughout Latin America Saab is known as a reliable partner and a source of strategic defence and security technology which are helping to safeguard people and society. We stand proudly alongside all of our existing customers and see great potential to do new business. Our cost-efficient, flexible and smart solutions enhance capabilities and solve real problems and threats across the region. There is no other company that can match our portfolio of proven, high-quality products” says Fredrik Gustafson, head of marketing and sales, Saab’s market area Latin America.

Saab is enjoying a sustained period of expansion. There are few, if any, other defence, security and aerospace suppliers that can deliver the range of effective and efficient products found in the Saab portfolio.
