Saab wins FMV contract for Gripen system upgrade

Saab has secured a deal worth around SEK 224 million with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) relating to the upgrade of the Gripen C/D system.

The order primarily involves improvements to and modifications of existing capabilities in the so-called MS20 upgrade, which was introduced across the Swedish Air Force Gripen fleet in 2016.

The ordered upgrades concern central capabilities such as target acquisition, self-protection, communication and human-machine interaction, as well as a number of key support and training systems.

The work will be carried out at Saab’s facilities in Gothenburg, Järfälla, Linköping and Arboga.

“This is an important order to maintain and further develop the capabilities of Gripen C/D. It involves large parts of the Gripen C/D system,” Jonas Hjelm, head of Saab business area Aeronautics.

Deliveries will take place between 2018 and 2020.
