Deployable Aircraft Maintenance Facility


Enhanced aircraft maintenance capacity, minimum logistical footprint and superior multispectral protection at deployed operations.

For force protection, force projection and force mobility:

  • Enhanced capability - Increased aircraft maintenance capacity at Forward Operating Base
  • Multispectral protection - Proven life saving in mission environment
  • Minimum logistical footprint - Rapid deployment and reduced mission cost
  • Minimum maintenance requirements - Maximum operational availability

The concept

One of the most essential parameters of an aircraft fleet at all times is availability, even more so when operating out of remotely located and dispersed forward bases, far away from the Main Operating Base. To ensure availability, adequate maintenance capacity at the Forward Operating Base is crucial.

The Saab Deployable Aircraft Maintenance Facility provides enhanced maintenance capacity at Forward Operating Base level, enabling increased aircraft availability.

Solution overview

The Saab Deployable Aircraft Maintenance Facility comprises a First Line Maintenance Hangar for storage, protection and maintenance of the aircraft, Maintenance Containers and an integrated Barracuda multispectral camouflage protection.

The solution requires minimum logistical footprint and maintenance. It is rapidly deployed, enabling flexibility and mobility.

Multispectral camouflage provides protection against detection in the visual, near infrared, short wave infrared, thermal infrared and broadband radar wavebands, this significantly improves force survivability.

The multispectral protection is based on Barracudas 50 year’s long heritage within the field of signature management, supplying over 60 customers worldwide.
