Saab Signs Partnering Agreement with Australian Department of Defence for Combat Management Systems

Saab has signed an Enterprise Partnering Agreement with the Australian Department of Defence to provide combat management systems across all the Royal Australian Navy’s major surface ships. Saab has not yet received a new order.

As previously announced by Saab and the Australian Department of Defence, Saab will deliver the tactical interface to the Royal Australian Navy’s fleet of Hunter class frigates. The tactical interface will be based on Saab’s ‘Next Generation’ Combat Management System (CMS), which will become part of all the Navy’s major surface ships.

“This agreement is an important milestone in our long-standing relation with Australia and we look forward to continue building our partnership and supporting the Royal Australian Navy’s capability with our state-of-the art combat management system”, says Anders Carp, head of Saab business area Surveillance.

Saab will deliver the ‘Next Generation’ CMS to Australia’s new Arafura class offshore patrol vessels and the Supply class auxiliary oiler replenishment ships. Saab will also modernise the 9LV CMS currently in use in the Anzac class frigates, and will provide the software for the future tactical interface for the Hobart class destroyer when their current CMS is modernised.
