Saab Defense and Security USA provides solutions and technologies that are central to U.S. defense and homeland security. Part of the global Saab Group, we develop, modify and deliver Saab's portfolio to U.S. customers, blending Swedish quality and reliability with American ambition and cost efficiency.
Saab has been a proud supplier and active partner to the U.S. government for more than 40 years. Among many other solutions, we have supplied ground combat systems to the U.S. Army and SOCOM, training systems to the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps, and signature management solutions to the U.S. Department of Defense. As prime or in partnership with major U.S. OEMs, we have delivered radars and sensors to the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Marine Corps, the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Department of State. We are also a respected supplier of advanced aerostructures to the 787 Dreamliner and other programs.
Outside of internally developed products, Saab's North American growth strategy has included the development of strong partnerships with major industry players. We bring key technologies and capabilities to support these primes and help build their business, both in North America and around the world. We maintain partnerships with Boeing on the U.S. Air Force's T-X program; with Northrop Grumman on U.S. Marines Corps' G/ATOR program; and with Raytheon for U.S. Air Force's 3DELRR program. These partnerships provide us with a joint knowledge that takes our services to the next level.
Saab's U.S. portfolio is based on technology developed both in Sweden and locally in the United States. We actively transfer technology from Sweden where appropriate, while utilizing a supplier base across 24 U.S. states to foster our nation's development capabilities. In the long term, this means ongoing U.S. growth for Saab, and more jobs for Americans.
With over $270M USD in annual sales, Saab has over 600 employees in North America, and operates out of five U.S. locations.
Saab Defense and Security USA LLC functions under a Special Security Agreement with the U.S. Department of Defense.
