A fully equipped composite mast
Saab Lightweight Intergrated Mast (SLIM) means that we take a holistic responsibility for the sensor performance and integration,
top-deck design, structural tolerances, interfaces and installation.
The operational value of a ship is not determined by the age of the hull. Two of the Swedish Royal Navy's Gävle-class Corvettes are receiving enhanced capabilities including SLIM.
Saab has designed and built composite masts for decades. Now, we have developed the technology into fully equipped, tested and verified masts suited for the prime contractor shipyard.
Derived from the stealth Visby-class corvette’s 100-percent carbon fibre hull construction, we have successfully introduced SLIM on the market for surface combatants.
