JOIN US AT LIMA

For more than 30 years, Saab has supplied the Malaysian Armed Forces with high performance and cost effective defence systems, including radars for naval and air defence, airborne self-protection for fighters, naval command and control systems and ground combat weapons.

 

Whatever the challenge, Saab delivers innovative, effective products and solutions that enhance your capabilities and give your forces the edge.

 

At LIMA 2017 Saab will be present with chalets at both the Aerospace and Maritime sites, where you are welcome to visit a display area to learn more about our key products and solutions.

LIVE DEMONSTRATION OF SEA WASP

Down by the waterfront at the Maritime site, Saab will have live demonstrations of our latest generation Remotely Operated Vehicle – the Sea Wasp. The system is designed for safe localisation, identification and neutralization of IEDs, specifically in the confined areas and challenging environmental conditions of ports and harbours.

 

During the approximately 20 minutes display some of the key features of the Sea Wasp will be demonstrated, including its manoeuvrability, integrated tooling and functions such as manipulators, waypoint navigation, obstacle avoidance, sonar and cameras.

 

Attend the live demonstration to learn all about the capabilities of the Sea Wasp, daily from Wednesday, 22 March.

 

For exact timings, please check the agenda.

Latest News & Stories

  • With navies around the world upgrading their submarine programs, effective anti-submarine warfare measures are also needed. Saab’s AUV62-AT acoustic target provides a flexible and cost-effective way of training crews, without the need for an actual submarine.

  • In 2016, Swedish defence and security company Saab presented its newly developed Remotely Operated Vehicle, Sea Wasp, at the Navy League´s Sea-Air-Space Exposition in National Harbor, Maryland, USA. The vehicle, ground-breaking in many ways, is designed to replicate what the Land EOD Robot does; but in the confined areas and challenging environmental conditions of ports and harbors. A much needed capability for nations worldwide today.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • With a new weapons system, enhanced protection for the pilot and longer service intervals MS20 gives a real boost to the entire Gripen platform.

  • Ahead of LIMA 2017, Thomas Linden, Vice President, Head of Saab Malaysia, elaborates on Saab’s plans for this major aerospace and maritime show, and explains how Saab continues to cooperate closely with the Malaysian defence industry.

  • For every maritime nation, information gathering, surveillance and sea control along every coastline has never been more important. Today the centre of gravity for naval operations has shifted away from the deep, open oceans to the shallower but far more complex littoral zones just over the horizon.

  • Naval forces and maritime organizations require a control and command system that gives them the upper hand and meets all operational needs – regardless of the size of the vessel.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Dan Enstedt, President and CEO, Saab Asia-Pacific, highlights Sweden’s long relationship with Malaysia, and how Saab is an ideal partner for the Malaysian defence industry to keep the nation secure and prosperous.

  • How can airborne platforms avoid attack in hostile environments? In order to avoid becoming a target, it is crucial to keep track of every type signal out there. Saab provides complete solutions allowing exceptional situational awareness to keep people and equipment safe.

  • Cheap and often produced in large numbers, sea mines are one of the major hazards facing modern navies. A toolbox of different solutions is needed to neutralise the wide range of mines being deployed.

  • With navies around the world upgrading their submarine programs, effective anti-submarine warfare measures are also needed. Saab’s AUV62-AT acoustic target provides a flexible and cost-effective way of training crews, without the need for an actual submarine.

    What's that yellow thing swimming around in the sea? It's our Sea Wasp and it can remotely search for mines on the seafloor which makes it safe for both vessel and divers who instead can be on a distance from the explosive item. PS. This week we'll have live demos of Sea Wasp at #LIMA17. Check out our event page for more details: saab.com./lima

    This is not only the #Saabinthesky image of the week, it’s also the first all-weather fighter in the Swedish Air Force. When Saab J 32B Lansen entered service in 1959 it made it possible for the pilot to engage enemy aircraft without having visual contact. Photo courtesy of Peter Brauns. Next week we will highlight the 25 years anniversary of the Saab 2000 aircraft. If you have some photos, please tag them and we will pick one and share it in our channels.
