Saab receives order for Gripen development resources

April 24, 2024 - Saab has received an order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) to support future development of the Gripen system. The order is valued at SEK 540 million and pertains to work during the 2024 business year. 

The order from FMV is an extension of the existing contract and enables continued development of the Gripen system for the Swedish Armed Forces and other Gripen users around the world. The order includes operation and support of test aircraft and sophisticated equipment, such as rigs and simulators, which will be used when Saab develops new future capabilities for Gripen C/D and Gripen E, as well as for upgrades of existing systems.

“Gripen is designed for continuous upgrades to meet current and future threats. Continued development requires sophisticated simulators and rigs that are easy to operate, cost-effective to maintain, and quick to adapt for new capabilities. This order ensures that Gripen will remain at the forefront for a long time to come,” says Lars Tossman, Head of Saab’s Aeronautics business area.

The work will primarily be carried out at Saab’s facilities in Linköping, Gothenburg, Järfälla, and Arboga.
