Saab builds for ex­pan­sion in the naval do­main

SP's MAI - - CORPORATE -

De­fence and se­cu­rity com­pany Saab is ex­pand­ing its ac­tiv­i­ties in the naval arena. Saab is there­fore re­cruit­ing new em­ploy­ees to strengthen and de­velop its naval ca­pa­bil­i­ties. To­day, Saab is one of the leading com­pa­nies within the naval arena. It is a provider to the Swedish Navy, the ma­jor con­trac­tor to the Thai Navy and is re­spon­si­ble for de­vel­op­ment, in­te­gra­tion and sup­port of the Com­bat Man­age­ment Sys­tems on Aus­tralia’s AN­ZAC class frigates. Saab is now pre­par­ing to take a full re­spon­si­bil­ity within the naval do­main.

Busi­ness area Se­cu­rity and De­fence So­lu­tions (SDS) will main­tain its over­all re­spon­si­bil­ity while strength­en­ing its or­gan­i­sa­tion with additional skills. SDS is man­ag­ing an or­der from the Swedish De­fence Ma­teriel Ad­min­is­tra­tion (FMV) to study the pre­req­ui­sites for a con­sol­i­dated strat­egy to sup­port the un­der­wa­ter do­main.

Saab cur­rently pro­vides the in­te­grated ship con­trol man­age­ment and mon­i­tor­ing sys­tems for Nor­way’s Ula class sub­marines and Aus­tralia’s Collins class sub­marines. Saab is de­liv­er­ing elec­tronic war­fare sys­tems for sub­marines in sev­eral coun­tries and re­cently fur­ther con­tracts were signed to deliver au­ton­o­mous an­ti­sub­ma­rine war­fare tar­gets. Saab is also a world leading provider of au­ton­o­mous mil­i­tary and civil un­der­wa­ter ve­hi­cle sys­tems (AUVs and ROVs).

“Saab is to­day a leading provider of naval sys­tems, and this ini­tia­tive will en­able Saab to strengthen and de­velop its naval ca­pa­bil­i­ties,” says Gu­nilla Frans­son, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent and Head of Se­cu­rity and De­fence So­lu­tions.

“Saab is look­ing for em­ploy­ees who want to con­tinue to de­velop naval prod­ucts for Swe­den and the global mar­ket. Saab of­fers its em­ploy­ees great op­por­tu­ni­ties to prac­tise their knowl­edge, to de­velop it fur­ther and con­trib­ute to strong and com­pet­i­tive prod­ucts for fu­ture cus­tomers,” says Gu­nilla Frans­son.
