Sweden’s Saab is eyeing greater success in the rapidly expanding Asia Pacific naval market, where the company already has a growing presence. The company is showcasing a wide range of in-house capabilities at the ongoing show.
“Saab is utterly unique in the naval domain,” says Dean Rosenfield, Head of Saab Asia Pacific. “We are the only company with the in-house skills to deliver advanced combat vessels and submarines plus all of the weapons, sensors, fire control and C2 systems that complete the maritime battlespace. Saab also develops, supplies and sustains all the essential enabling systems on land and in the air that ensure a full-spectrum naval defence and security capability.”
Saab has made Singapore as its base in Asia Pacific and also remains active in almost every other nation across the region as a key component of their naval operations. At IMDEX Asia 2019, Saab is showcasing a range of products and solutions across its portfolio of offerings in the maritime and air domains.
Amongst its next-generation warship and submarine technology offerings is the A26 conventional submarine, along with Saab’s next-generation corvettes. Saab’s proven and trusted Combat Boat 90 (CB 90) and Patrol Boat (Interceptor) families are in service with navies and coast guards worldwide.
Saab is also emphasising its ROV and AUV systems and is promoting its unique Multi-Shot Mine Neutralisation System (MuMNS), which can be used for live operational mine clearance, peacetime operations against historical ordnance, mine investigation and underwater demolitions. The Skeldar V-200, is also on show at the ongoing and such systems will meet the requirements for the next-gen of naval warfare. Saab is also showcasing its complete range of naval warfare capabilities, including the 9LV combat management system, Sea Giraffe radar, CEROS and EOS fire control systems, electronic warfare and TactiCall communications – all fully integrated with every class of vessel. The company is further promoting its Lightweight Torpedo (SLWT) for littoral supremacy, which it says is also ready for future challenges.
