  • In December 2013, Saab signed a Joint Development Agreement with Boeing to cultivate a new training solution for the U.S. Air Force's (USAF) upcoming competition to replace its T-38 aircrew training system. Nearly three years later on September 13, 2016, we are rolling out our new system: the T-X. Designed specifically for the USAF training mission, the T-X is a perfect replacement for the legendary T-38 Talon.

  • Since the early 1990s, the U.S. Navy (USN) has focused on anti-air and anti-surface warfare – but now, the battlespace is moving underwater. Submarines and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV) are seeing expanded operations worldwide, including those of a threatening nature. Twenty-five years ago, only a dozen or so countries were deploying submarines. Today, that number has climbed to 40.

  • Complex and rapidly unfolding emergencies and crises create challenging environments for emergency responders of all types to save lives, support critical functions, and restore essential services. These situations, which are often clouded with uncertainty, particularly in the early phases due to unsubstantiated information, require a fast-acting chain of critical decision making.

    Complex and rapidly unfolding emergencies and crises create challenging environments for emergency responders of all types to save lives, support critical functions, and restore essential services. Command center operators and front line personnel must coordinate with the government, private sector, and non-governmental organizations to understand what is occurring, diagnose an emerging situation, and respond appropriately. These situations, which are often clouded with uncertainty, particularly in the early phases due to unsubstantiated information, require a fast-acting chain of critical decision making.

     
  • With an aging fleet and a scarcity of replacement parts, the U.S. Marine Corps is currently facing a lack of mission-ready aircraft. Pilots are clocking in fewer flight hours as a result, raising concerns over how they can receive the training necessary for operational readiness.

  • On June 8, the United States and Sweden signed a statement of intent to collaborate more closely on defense matters. The statement notes that in addition to expanding dialogue and information sharing, the two nations will focus on increasing interoperability through training. Interoperability through training is increasingly crucial for the United States – especially as C4I technology advances.

  • In January 2016, representatives of three U.S. EOD agencies met with a team of Saab employees from the United States, Sweden and the UK for four days of training on the Sea Wasp, Saab's new anti-IED remotely operated vehicle (ROV).

     
  • Over the past decade, the U.S. Army has primarily focused its force protection measures on countering improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Anti-IED technologies, such a double V-hulls, IED jammers, and Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles, have proven successful in mitigating the IED threat. Today, however, the focus is shifting to the anti-tank/anti-armor weapons threat – and that means an increased need for Active Protection Systems (APSs).

  • Today's power industry is facing a critical challenge: an aging workforce and a shortage of qualified personnel to replace them. In order to continue thriving, the market must close the skills gap between the older and younger generations of power plant workers. Achieving this will require training that caters to "digital natives" or those born after 1980 who can easily function in a virtual environment. That's where Saab's VC3T comes in.
