How Gripen E’s upgradability is making aircraft ‘generations’ obsolete
In the video here, Daniela, Saab Avionics Engineer, explains why Gripen’s upgradability is truly a game-changer. As she points out, with Gripen E, Saab decided to embrace the speed of technological change. The new avionics system in Gripen E is allowing us to update its data or software in hours. For instance, the new radar signature of an opponent recorded by one fighter would be updated by the next day in all Gripen fighters, enabling them to recognize the fighter. This is why we do not talk about fighter generations anymore.
