The Brazilian Gripen programme strengthens the ties between Sweden and Brazil. Together with Brazilian industry, Saab is building a long-term strategic partnership with Brazil and the Brazilian Air Force.
When Brazil decided to acquire the Gripen system, we entered into a close cooperation relationship with the country. Gripen will not only increase the operational capacity of the Brazilian Air Force, enabling it with the highest technology to carry out its missions, but also the training of the Brazilian air defense industry, through an extensive technology transfer program.
Together with Embraer, Akaer, AEL Sistemas, Atmos, DCTA and other companies benefiting from the program, we will develop capabilities and generate knowledge for the development and maintenance of the most advanced multi-mission hunting in the world, here in Brazil. We believe that knowledge grows when it is shared among people, companies and nations.
