The Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) has awarded a contract to Saab for upgrade of Thailand’s national Air Command and Control System which is based on Saab’s 9AIR C4I.
The RTAF’s Air Command and Control System (ACCS) has been operational since 2010 and Saab’s upgrade proposal for the Thai system was selected following a comprehensive evaluation process.
Saab will now upgrade the ACCS with new hardware and software that will sustain, enhance and expand the system’s nationwide capabilities for future operations.
The work will take place at Saab in Järfälla, Sweden and the contract will run until 2020.
“This order demonstrates the competitiveness of the 9AIR C4I product. Our advanced Air Command and Control System provides the Royal Thai Air Force with a vital part of its air defence system,” says Anders Carp, Senior Vice President and Head of Saab’s business area Surveillance.
The RTAF’s ACCS is a vital part of Thailand’s network centric air defence capability which also includes Saab’s Gripen fighter, Erieye airborne early warning system and tactical data links.
