Seoul ADEX is a major forum for the aerospace and defense sectors in the Republic of Korea and the wider Asia Pacific region.

This year Saab brings a special empahsis on advanced capabilities for maritime patrol and airborne early warning and control that are uniquely suited to this region.

“Saab is already a strong partner in the defense of Korea and we are always looking to find new ways to work together. Korea, like Sweden, understands the need for advanced, independent defense technologies that must be effective and affordable. Powerful solutions like Saab’s Swordfish MPA and GlobalEye AEW&C reflect this philosophy perfectly. Visitors to ADEX are welcome to come and see how these systems, and all Saab products, meet the very highest operational requirements, through elegant, far-sighted design,” says Håkan Borin, Head of Saab South Korea.
