Pacific 2017: Saab CMS as Choice for RAN

At this stage there is no contract signed or order received by Saab

The Australian government has identified Saab to provide the tactical interface to the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN) fleet of nine Future Frigates. The Saab 9LV Combat Management System would form an integral part of the Future Frigate and upgraded Air Warfare Destroyer combat capability as well as being selected for the Offshore Patrol Vessels.

Over the last 30 years in Australia Saab has established a strong relationship with the RAN, delivering the combat management systems for the ANZAC class frigates, CANBERRA class Landing Helicopter Dock vessels and selected for the new supply ships.

Saab welcomes the announcement made today by the Australian Prime Minister that confirms Saab as an integral part of the government’s enterprise approach to combat management systems,” Dean Rosenfield, Managing Director of Saab Australia, told MONS. “This is an endorsement of the advanced combat system capabilities we have developed for the RAN and we look forward to working closely with the Australian Defence Force to deliver highly capable systems for the Future Frigates and other platforms.”

At this stage there is no contract signed or order received by Saab.

The government’s decisiveness and support for Australian industry will give Saab certainty to invest in the long-term. With a contract in place, this will mean new job opportunities and growth on the Australian market, carrying out development and support across every major ship in the Australian fleet,” Mr. Rosenfield concludes.
