The Saab Experience
“Discover how our thinking edge pushes the boundaries of aerial supremacy,” Saab said in a written statement ahead of the Farnborough Airshow (FIA) this year. The company sees its Saab Experience at Farnborough Air Show as one of this year’s most important meeting places for the aerospace industry, stating: “Discover how our combination of innovative thinking, in-depth knowledge and design provide smarter solutions that enhance our customer’s capabilities. Explore our ground-breaking products, services and solutions in the Saab Experience showroom, our exciting event space where we will display a wide range selection of our capabilities, and our latest innovations within our airborne solutions and electronic warfare systems.”
That said, Saab’s solutions are designed to meet defence and security challenges that are increasingly fast-moving and ever-changing. From peace keeping operations to combat scenarios, missions demand seamless implementation of strategies. Among the products on display is a full scale replica of the GRIPEN E with Rafael’s new SPICE-250 air-to-ground gliding bomb.
Furthermore, the GRIPEN E flight simulator, equipped with a wide area display, demonstrates some of the advanced technology and operational effectiveness built into Saab’s smart fighter system, what the company calls the GRIPEN E.
Also on show is the 9Air C4I Tactical Operations Command and Control system that turns, “information into knowledge, and knowledge into action,” the company states, and the latest generation of the RBS15. A missile prepared to dominate tomorrow.
