Enhanced capability anywhere, anytime Deployable Maintenance Facility


Key features

  • Enhanced capability - Maximised operational availability
  • Multispectral protection - Proven lifesaving in mission environment
  • Infrastructure optimisation - Availability and cost
  • Self-sufficient capability - Extended endurance and reduced dependency

The concept

One of the most essential parameters of any 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, sufficient maintenance capacity at the Forward Operating Base is crucial.

The Saab Deployable Maintenance facility provides enhanced maintenance capacity and can be deployed rapidly wherever the need arises, enabling increased availability.


The solution

The Saab Deployable Maintenance facility comprises a Hangar for storage, protection and maintenance of the aircraft, Maintenance Containers and integrated Barracuda multispectral camouflage protection.

The Deployable Maintenance facility requires minimum logistical footprint and maintenance. It is rapidly deployed, enabling flexibility and mobility. The rigid design and compliance with NATO environmental standards facilitates operation in the toughest of climates.


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 60 year long heritage within the field of signature management, supplying over 40 customers worldwide.
