Saab has received an order from the Swedish Armed Forces and the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) for continued technical support on weapons and external stores for Gripen. The order value amounts to SEK 142 million.
The order is a call-up of an option as part of a previous agreement with FMV for technical support and maintenance of Gripen’s existing weapons and external stores, which was signed in March 2015. Today’s order secures continued technical support for Gripen regarding weapons and external stores, including for example support, configuration management, technical documentation, technical maintenance and modification.
“This order will ensure continued efficient operations of technical support for Gripen, ensuring that the customer's availability requirements are met in the best possible way,” says Ellen Molin, head of Saab’s business area Support and Services.
The order concerns Saab’s operations in Linköping, Järfälla and Arboga.
