saab at pacific 2015

Defence and security company Saab will have its latest technologically advanced and innovative solutions in naval systems on show at the Pacific 2015 exhibition in Sydney 6-8 October 2015.

Saab develops ground breaking ideas for existing technology and pioneering innovations and will be showcasing its full naval defence capabilities developed in Australia and from across the globe.

Gunilla Fransson, Senior Vice President of Saab’s global defence and security business will be attending the international maritime exhibition, which draws attendees from across the globe.

“The Asia Pacific region is of strategic importance to Saab, we have a long-term investment in Australia that spans 25 years,” says Gunilla Fransson, head of Business Area Security and Defence Solutions, Saab.

“Our Australian operations support more than 300 employees developing Australia’s future combat system for the next generation frigates and new technologies in unmanned surface vessels; which will feature at Pacific 2015,” says Gunilla Fransson.

At Pacific 2015, Saab will be demonstrating the future roadmap for 9LV and its ability to meet the unique requirements of the Royal Australian Navy and the benefits of commonality across its current and future platforms.

“As Australia’s leading combat system integrator, we will be explaining the future evolution of the 9LV combat management and anti-ship missile defence system, currently in-service with the Royal Australian Navy’s Anzac class frigates and Canberra class landing helicopter docking ships,” says Gerard Ogden, Head of Marketing and Sales in Australia, Saab.

“The battle-proven, scalable 9LV system is a completely flexible and modular capability suited to a range of platforms including frigates and offshore patrol vessels. Through successive capability upgrades, such as the anti-ship missile defence integration, 9LV has made Australia’s current Anzac class frigates the most capable in the world and the baseline for the next generation,” says Gerard Ogden.

Also on display are products from Saab’s global portfolio, including:

  • A26, the most modern submarine program in the world
  • FlexPatrol, flexible littoral ships for combat and patrol with Genuine Holistic Stealth
  • Bonefish, the latest Unmanned Surface Vessel control system
  • Double Eagle SAROV and AUV-62 unmanned underwater vehicles for mine warfare and anti-submarine warfare training
  • Skeldar V-200 medium-range unmanned aerial vehicle for maritime missions
  • TactiCall integrated communications systems

Come and see how we are breaking the thought barrier at Pacific 2015 — let us show you our future thinking for naval defence.
