Defence and security company Saab will display its broad range of land air and naval solutions for military defence and civil security at SITDEF VI 2017 International Defense Thecnology Exhibition & Prevention of Disasters from May 18 – 21, 2017, booth #211.

Saab considers SITDEF-2017 an important opportunity to continue keeping people and society safe in the region. Saab’s trusted and reliable products are backed by a unique mix of high technology, proven effectiveness and lower costs, and SITDEF- 2017 is an important opportunity to present solutions that will not only meet clients’ needs and requests, but also allow them to be ready to act in case of disaster.

“We aim to provide customers in Perú, Latin America, the best tools to keep people and society safe. This means being ready and having real time information at any moment. Our naval and air solutions allow this, even in regions as complex and different as the Amazon or the Pacific Ocean. SITDEF is a great opportunity for us to display our high-technology portfolio in all domains and continue consolidating our regional projects and relations,” points out Joakim Schackenborg, Head of CU Latin America South Cone at Saab.


At SITDEF-2017, Saab will showcase its broad range of high-tech products and solutions, including:


Gripen, the smart fighter: The globally interoperable, multi-role fighter capable of undertaking the full range of air-to-air and air-to-ground missions, including specialist roles such as intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance and electronic warfare. Gripen is easily deployable, with a very low maintenance and support footprint coupled with high reliability.


Saab 2000 Erieye AEW&C: Airborne early warning system for long-range surveillance and control. Erieye monitors airspace, borders and sea lanes to ensure national security and assist in law-enforcement missions such as anti-smuggling, anti-piracy and protection of national resources.

Ideal for integration on medium-size commuter-type aircraft, like the Saab 2000 turbo prop. A solution that benefits from high availability, low operational costs and a small organisational footprint.


RBS 70 NG: Short-range air defence missile system to provide protection from 250 m out to 9 km for ground forces against airborne threats. The system is portable, easy to set up and operate, and provides 24-hour coverage in all climates.


Naval Combat System: Saab’s naval combat system offers a complete range of combat system solutions adapted for every type of naval platform, ranging from combat boats and patrol boats, to frigates and aircraft carriers, as well as submarines and vessels for anti-piracy, security and surveillance.


TactiCall ICS: Communications system that interconnects all communication technologies regardless of radioband, frequency and hardware, reduces effort, reduces risk and increase tempo.


CEROS 2000: Radar and optronic tracking fire control director designed for use on naval ships. A world-class performer in terms of automatic target detection and lock-on, it provides excellent defence against any modern threat, including advanced sea skimming missiles or asymmetric surface threats in littoral environments.
