State-of-the-art capabilities

The RBS15 Mk3 allows for true fire-and forget operability in all weather conditions, thanks to its advanced prelaunch programmable active radar seeker.

An Engine for the future

All that the Stirling engine needs is heat and it does not matter how the heat is produced. It can come from sun radiation or from anything that burns: oil, diesel, petrol or gas.

Combat Management System

9LV CMS system is a perfect example of how you can increase your mission capability by enabling flexible and effective operations.

Our thinking edge

Finding the needle in the haystack

Looking for threats can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. So how do modern radars deal with stealth, birds and jamming?

Really advanced dinner logistics

More than ninety per cent of the goods transports in the world are shipped. That means that many of the things on our dinner tables, in our homes and in our workplaces arrived by boat. And perhaps these were offloaded in a port near you.

  • To ensure success, air force operations rely on an intricate web of support activities. One is the ability to perform aircraft maintenance wherever necessary, thereby ensuring that the system issued to deployed task forces is ready for operational use.

  • Anti-submarine warfare (ASW) is not only a capability. It’s a very special skill with knowledge and experience built up over decades. These skills were almost lost, almost forgotten about – due to the Post-Cold War draw down of submarines, and the focus on land campaigns. For a period during the mid-late 2000’s it seemed that
    the maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) was a dying capability. Fast forward almost a decade and things couldn’t be more different.

  • To see beyond the earth’s curvature, you need altitude, in order to achieve wide-area, long range coverage. Being that high up puts demands on your equipment. You need an ultra-long-range radar and ideally, an additional array of sensors to generate a comprehensive and accurate picture of the areas of interest.

    Much has happened since we developed our early fighter aircraft. The knowledge we gained from that experience is the foundation for our way of building today’s Gripen fighter aircraft. The #Saabinthesky image of the week shows the Saab 29 Tunnan, our second jet fighter that was one of the fastest fighters of its time when it entered service in 1951.
