Saab receives order on Ceros 200 from Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization
The Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization will buy the tracking system for approximately SEK 145 million.
Defence and security company Saab has received an order from the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) on the tracking system Ceros 200. The order value amounts to approximately SEK 145 million.
The order includes a tracking system to the Danish Knud Rasmussen-class patrol vessels. The tracking system Ceros 200 is part of a fire control system, whose task is to detect, monitor and combat threats to a ship. Ceros 200 is a precise system with a unique patented capability to distinguish between true and false threats. In addition to Ceros 200, Saab will also supply spare parts, documentation and training for the Danish armed forces.
"Ceros 200 is based on radar and optronic technology, which makes the system very precise in all weather conditions. Ceros 200 is used on more than 200 ships around the world," says Gunilla Fransson, head of Saab's business area Security and Defence Solutions.
"This is a further proof of the Saab products' position in tough competition. I look forward to a continued successful and trusting co-operation in Denmark," says Ole Beckmann Andersen, country manager Saab in Denmark.
Production and delivery of the system will take place during 2016 and 2017.
