Saab at Dubai Airshow 2015
Saab's Remote Tower concept, offering a new approach to air traffic management at airports, will be the topic of a press briefing at the show.
At the Dubai Airshow 2015, Saab will show how its advanced technology and innovative thinking gives your capabilities the edge. The United Arab Emirates is a hub of the aerospace world, and the Dubai Airshow is one of the most important aerospace and defence industry events of the year.
"Saab is a world leader when it comes to critical aerospace and defence technology. We have a proven track record in things that matter to customers in this region; in airborne early warning, air traffic management, command and control, radar, missile systems, ground combat and training, to give just a few examples. We are looking forward to greeting customers from the air, land and sea domains because the Dubai Airshow is an important venue for them all. We will also be pleased to stand alongside our local partners and our local staff, who work closely with us to meet the needs of the UAE and the other customers in the region," says Magnus-Lewis Olsson, head of Saab Market Area Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Saab is enjoying a sustained period of expansion. There are few, if any, other defence, security and aerospace suppliers that can deliver the range of effective and efficient products found in the Saab portfolio. The UAE is the perfect place to demonstrate Saab's products and capabilities to key customers from the Gulf region and around the globe.
"The Dubai Airshow is a very important event for Saab and the Saab Middle East office. It gives our employees the opportunity to connect and meet with our existing partners in the region, while also showcasing the latest technologies the company has available. As the leading event of its kind in the region, and through its substantial international delegations, the Dubai Airshow is a place for Saab to forge new relationships that could develop into strong business partnerships in the future," says Saab's Simon Carroll, president and general manager, Saab Middle East.
At Dubai 2015, Saab will host two press briefings, each on the Saab stand, number 1516.

Innovations in air traffic management
Saab's revolutionary Remote Tower concept promises a completely new approach to air traffic management at airports. At a time when the very rapid growth of air travel to and through the Gulf region is placing ever-greater pressure on an air traffic environment that is already extremely complex, the fully-certified Remote Tower Services concept offers a route forwards to higher traffic capacity and higher standards of safety. Saab's Per Ahl, VP traffic management, Europe, Greater Middle East and Africa, and David Shomar, VP civil security Middle East and North Africa, will explain how our fully scalable system can be applied at major international airports, contingency and ramp operations, as well as single regional airports or local airport clusters.
