Saab Rugged Vetronics System for Denel
Defence and security company Saab has signed a contract with Denel Land Systems regarding the delivery of a Rugged Vetronics System.
The contract is the result of close collaboration between Saab Grintek Defence and Saab's Business Area Support and Services, stemming from a contract signed between Denel Land Systems in South Africa and the Malaysian Army concerning their AV-8 programme - the latest generation of eight-wheel drive armoured vehicles.
The contract includes delivery of 254 rugged battle panels and 127 rugged keyboards, plus 122 Fire Control Computers. The products have been developed at Saab in Sweden.
"Professional design and development according to the customer's requirements resulted in high quality products that satisfy the customer's operational requirements and surpassing their expectations. This has also strengthened Saab's position as a strategic partner to Denel for future business co-operation in other areas of technology," says Hannes du Preez, Sales Manager for the contract with Denel at Saab Grintek Defence.
"This order confirms our position as a leading supplier of Vetronics to the international market," says Niclas L÷vgren, Marketing and Sales Director at Saab's Business Area Support and Services.
The first deliveries will be made in October and will continue until September 2017.
