The full-scale replica will be on display in FIDAE’s outdoor area close to Pavilion E, for visitors to sit on the Gripen cockpit and experience first-hand the amazing capabilities of future-proof fighter jet.

RBS 70 NG: Short-range air defence missile system to provide protection from 250 meters out to 9 km for ground forces against airborne threats. The system is portable, easy to set up and operate, and provides 24-hour coverage in all climates.

MSHORAD: A package solution that includes the Giraffe 1X radar integrated with C2, and the RBS 70 NG Remote Weapon System (RWS). The 3D short-range Giraffe 1X provides 360 degree surveillance coverage at a range of 75 km, generating data to a C2 command and control communication system for analysis and action coordination. With an effective intercept range of 9 km, the high-precision RBS 70 NG RWS ensures coverage from ground level up to 5 km, launching unjammable laser-guided missiles with a high hit probability.

9LV Combat Management System (CMS): Highly integrated system that brings information from the ship’s sensors, weapons and communications together, providing unsurpassed flexibility. 9LV CMS offers complete C4I for all types of naval platforms, from patrol vessels to submarines.

Air Traffic Management (ATM) solutions: A wide range of products designed to optimize air transportation covering traffic management, monitoring and other net centric capabilities. Multilateration and Aerobahn are two monitoring solutions that greatly support an airport’s overall operational performance. Saab’s Remote Tower product allows airport operators to provide control tower services at regional airports at just a fraction of the investment required to build, equip and operate traditional physical control towers.

Training & Simulation: An offer that comprises solutions within the live, virtual and constructive domain. All combined with in-depth knowledge in planning, integration and executing mission-specific training solutions. The product range includes live simulation of all types of anti-tank weapons, such as fire and forget, fire lead and ballistic missiles. The BT 46, for example, which has been selected by the majority of key NATO countries and has been proven superior to all other systems on the market, due to its realism and precision. A well trained force in terms of logistics, communication and team trust, is key both for Security and Civil defence.
