Saab and Tata to de­velop and man­u­fac­ture self-pro­tec­tion sys­tems


De­fence and se­cu­rity com­pany Saab and In­dian com­pany Tata Power Strate­gic Engi­neer­ing Divi­sion (Tata Power SED) have started the process of man­u­fac­tur­ing self-pro­tec­tion sys­tems for land-based plat­forms for the In­dian mar­ket and for ex­port to Saab’s global mar­ket. The part­ner­ship will also in­volve joint de­vel­op­ment of the next-gen­er­a­tion self-pro­tec­tion sys­tem.

The process of trans­fer of tech­nol­ogy (ToT) for pro­duc­tion of ini­tial or­ders for Saab’s global cus­tomers has al­ready com­menced at Tata Power SED’s fa­cil­ity in Ben­galuru. Tata Power SED will even­tu­ally man­u­fac­ture a large part of the sys­tem in In­dia and also do fi­nal assem­bly. Tata will also be re­spon­si­ble for mar­ket­ing the sys­tem in In­dia.

“Saab is fully com­mit­ted to work­ing with In­dian in­dus­try to ‘Make in In­dia’, and this part­ner­ship is an­other step in that di­rec­tion. Tata Power SED’s strengths in de­fence elec­tron­ics man­u­fac­tur­ing are a per­fect com­ple­ment to Saab’s ex­per­tise in elec­tronic war­fare sys­tems, sen­sors and self-pro­tec­tion sys­tems for all do­mains”, says Jan Wider­ström, Chair­man and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Saab In­dia Tech­nolo­gies.

Land Elec­tronic De­fence Sys­tem (LEDS) 50 MK2 is a sub­set of an in­te­grated and mod­u­lar, ac­tive de­fence sys­tem con­sist­ing of a laser warn­ing seg­ment (LWS) and ef­fec­tor con­trol seg­ment (OSCS). The so­lu­tion pro­vides com­bat per­son­nel with vi­tal sit­u­a­tional aware­ness on laser threats and coun­ter­mea­sure avail­abil­ity and ar­eas of cov­er­age/pro­tec­tion of­fered un­der dy­namic con­di­tions, al­low­ing man­ual or fully au­to­matic re­sponses against threats.
