Luftwaffe Acquires Saab BOZ-101 EC

29 Enhanced BOZ-101 EC Variants to be Delivered by 2020

Saab has received an order from the NATO Eurofighter 2000 and Tornado Management Agency (NETMA) on behalf of the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) for additional airborne self-protection systems.

The BOZ self-protection and countermeasures system has been in use on Luftwaffe TORNADOs for many years. This order is for 29 units of the enhanced version designated BOZ-101 EC. The wing mounted pod consists of a missile approach warning system and a countermeasures dispensing system with flexible orientation designed to counter modern IR-guided threats.

The well renowned BOZ pod has been used on the TORNADO for many years,” Anders Carp, Head of Saab business area Surveillance, explained. “This large follow-up order for the enhanced version confirms Saab´s capability to meet our customers’ need for state-of-the-art self-protection systems to improve their operational capabilities in hostile environments.”

Production of the BOZ-101 EC will take place at Saab sites in Järfälla, Sweden and Centurion, South Africa, with delivery to be completed by 2020.

Saab is a leading producer of advanced customised self-protection and countermeasure systems, installed on modern fighters and helicopters like the GRIPEN, F-18, F-15, and Eurofighter TYPHOON.
