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.
