FIDAE 2016: Saab Sees Great Opportunities in Latin America

At FIDAE 2016 on stand E47, Saab is demonstrating how its advanced technology and innovative thinking are keeping people and society in Latin America safe. A centrepiece at the show of course is the GRIPEN E fighter in a full-scale model located on the outdoor area. GRIPEN is a true multi-role fighter aircraft that has the operational range, payload and built-in net centric warfare capabilities to meet all roles as defined. The opportunities on the world market have been solidified and expanded, following the orders from Sweden and Brazil.

Saab sees the Latin American region as a dynamic market with great opportunities across all of its domains. "Throughout Latin America Saab is known as a reliable partner and a source of strategic defence and security technology which are helping to safeguard people and society," Fredrik Gustafson, head of marketing and sales, Saab’s market area Latin America, told MT. "We stand proudly alongside all of our existing customers and see great potential to do new business. Our cost-efficient, flexible and smart solutions enhance capabilities and solve real problems and threats across the region. There is no other company that can match our portfolio of proven, high-quality products."

Saab is furthermore focussing on the ERIEYE, which is already one of the most successful airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) systems in the world, with operators in eight different countries. New developments in radar and sensor technology, C4I architecture and platform performance are taking these capabilities to an entirely new level. See stories here and here.
