Col­lab­o­ra­tion on mar­itime com­bat sys­tems is the fo­cus of a new strate­gic al­liance signed by the De­fence Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy Or­gan­i­sa­tion (DSTO) and Saab Sys­tems. The new bi­lat­eral al­liance in­volves re­search as­so­ci­ated with Saab’s 9LV Mk3 com­bat man­age­ment sys­tem fit­ted to the Royal Aus­tralian Navy’s AN­ZAC ships.

“Saab’s par­tic­u­lar skills in mar­itime com­bat sys­tems is a per­fect fit with the re­quire­ments of DSTO’s de­vel­op­ment of these sys­tems,” Chief De­fence Sci­en­tist Dr Alex Zelin­sky said.
