To truly ensure territorial integrity and security in today’s complex environments, airborne surveillance is crucial. So too is extended range coupled with the ability to detect low-observable air, sea and ground objects. With the new GlobalEye AEW&C solution, you get it all.

Kockums A26

Kockums A26 is the world's most modern submarine program for the Swedish Navy - a unique submarine with proven modular design, silent long-endurance submerged performance and excellent manoeuvrability in all waters.


When cost-effectiveness puts high demands on airport operations, Saab's Remote Tower is exactly what airports need in order to stay competitive and to reduce cost.

Our thinking edge

Wings of Change

Civil aviation opens up a world of possibilities, but also consumes too much fuel and emits greenhouse gas emissions. That needs to change. Saab has designed an aircraft wing panel that reduces wind resistance and cuts fuel consumption.

rEvIBE Energy

Imagine that you are driving a car, you hear something rattling. You get a little irritated and want to find out what is making the sound to silence it. But there are those who instead are interested in the rattling sound since it implies that there are vibrations, vibrations that can be used for creating energy.

    #tbt to December 9, 1988 when Saab test pilot Stig Holmström took off from Linköping airfield at 12.21 for the first Gripen flight. The new Swedish fighter that was set to replace Saab 37 Viggen. Demands were sky high. Gripen had to be fully computerised and easily switch between air combat, attack and reconnaissance. An enormous challenge as the computers and systems needed did not yet exist. Mission accomplished. Since the first delivery in 1993, 204 multi-role fighters have been delivered to the Swedish Air Force. On May 18 we take the next step in the evolution of the #smartfighter when we unveil the very first Gripen E test aircraft. #gripenevolution #rollout #historicflight

News and press releases


  • From top-of-the-class in the United States to test pilot at Saab: Marcus Wandt is one of the chosen few whose job it is to get Gripen E ready for its maiden flight.

  • Navies and coast guards are facing new challenges and emphasis is shifting towards littoral operations and self defence capabilities. In areas like the Arabian Gulf, with intense maritime traffic, coast guards need to be prepared for threats such as missiles, helicopters and unmanned aircraft systems that are not only becoming faster but also smaller. There is also the challenge of dealing with asymmetric threats from pirates and terrorists.

  • The world is constantly changing and so are the challenges that nations are faced with. In today’s complex wold, we need to be aware of what is happening around us in the air, sea and on the ground.  And with new technologies making targets and threats more difficult to detect, this is a demanding task. Saab took on this challenge and arrived at a revolution in airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) – GlobalEye.
