Latest News & Stories

  • Saab has initiated a long-term research project in the key area of digitalisation with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore. This enables the recruitment of brilliant Ph.D. students, presenting a great opportunity for Saab to work with Singapore’s talent base while developing closer relations with key commercial actors in the region.

  • The GlobalEye solution the UAE purchased from Saab in 2016 as its Swing Role Surveillance System represents the very high end of the spectrum of airborne surveillance and AEW&C solutions. Saab’s Erieye AEW&C solutions are in operation in eight countries, making it the world’s most widely used system of its kind.

  • Navies and coast guards are facing new challenges and emphasis is shifting towards littoral operations and self-defence capabilities. In areas 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.

  • The need for strategic protection of national waters has never been more prevalent with submarine incursions and piracy incidents on the increase. In order to meet these challenges an effective Anti-Submarine Warfare capability is required along with the ability to carry out a wide selection of Maritime ISR roles.

  • It has recently been estimated that the number of operational submarines in the Asia Pacific region will be around 130 vessels by 2020. Piracy attacks continue to increase with 68% of the 134 piracy incidents reported worldwide in the first six months of 2015 occurring in South-East Asia. “The protection of national interests and the ability to contain threats in littoral waters and surrounding seas has never been more prevalent.” Says Richard Hjelmberg, Head of Marketing and Sales, Saab Airborne Surveillance Systems for the Asia Pacific region.

  • When seaborne trade and human activities in the coastal zone expand, then so do the threats. Piracy, smuggling, illegal fishing, oil pollution, illegal underwater activities and other criminal operations violating the borders – we all have a growing demand for superior maritime awareness to increase safety for our people.

  • Despite ultra-modern technology, it’s still very difficult to find a submarine that’s hiding. However, the probability of detection will be markedly increased by employing a maritime patrol aircraft, MPA. With speed, reach and persistence, combined with the latest on-board sensors, such platforms will always make life uncomfortable for even the most experienced of submarine captains.

  • Surveillance operations in the maritime domain are often complicated and demanding. Sometimes the threat is invisible and the environment more than dynamic. You simply need an edge to stay ahead. Get to know the Swordfish Maritime Patrol Aircraft in different operational scenarios.

  • Think you know everything there is to know about our underwater operations? Think again. These five facts about our underwater business may surprise you.

  • From the beginning, development of Saab's Double Eagle MCM ROVs and AUVs has been done in an evolutionary manner. New systems have to a large extent been built up based on the best features from previous designs.

  • Modern submarines are part of an intricate internal network of different technologies, platforms, systems and equipment. What does it take to get the communication to work smoothly on board the world´s most modern submarine, the Saab Kockums A26?

  • In addition to a daily responsibility to maintain national sovereignty, navies all over the world are undertaking an ever-increasing number of international assignments. This places new demands on technology and the need to communicate.

  • Saab has initiated a long-term research project in the key area of digitalisation with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore. This enables the recruitment of brilliant Ph.D. students, presenting a great opportunity for Saab to work with Singapore’s talent base while developing closer relations with key commercial actors in the region.

    We all want to use the best equipment while doing our job, whether we work in an office or a production facility. But what about soldiers in the field? Shouldn’t they have the best tools, too? We certainly think so – and that’s why we made the Carl-Gustaf M4 even more ergonomic. Read more:
