Saab Expands Activities in the Naval Arena

Saab announced that it is recruiting new employees to strengthen and develop its naval capabilities.
Saab is one of the leading companies within the naval arena. It is a provider to the Royal Swedish Navy, the major contractor to the Royal Thai Navy and is responsible for development, Integration, and support of the Combat Management Systems (CMS) on-board Australia’s ANZAC frigates. Saab is now preparing to take a full responsibility within the naval domain. The 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 (EW) systems for submarines in several countries and recently further contracts were signed to deliver autonomous anti-submarine warfare (ASW) targets. Saab is also a world leading provider of autonomous military and civil underwater vehicle systems (AUV and ROV).
“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 practice their knowledge, to develop it further and contribute to strong and competitive products for future customers", says Gunilla Fransson.
Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions ranging from military defence to civil security. Saab has operations and employees on all continents and constantly develops, adopts and improves new technology to meet customers’ changing needs.
