TransponderTech Product Support

For over 20 years, we have developed and sold world leading products based on AIS and GNSS technology.

Commercial radio products and software solutions have been delivered to primarily civil customers within the maritime segment, both ships and aircraft.

Saab's site in Hackefors, Sweden has approximately 45 employees and we handle the whole lifecycle process from development of products to delivery to the end customer and support.

We give training in all our products to our OEMs at request. Please contact: support.transpondertech@saabgroup.com
