The order is an extension of an existing contract and enables the future development of Gripen for the Swedish Air Force and other Gripen users around the world. The contract includes the operating and support of test aircraft and advanced tools such as testing rigs and simulators. Test aircraft together with these advanced tools are used in the verification and validation of Gripen C/D and Gripen E fighter systems as Saab develops future new capabilities or enhancements.

“Gripen is designed for continuous upgrades to take on and defeat new combat challenges – a design approach that we have already proven many times. To enable continued development in Gripen it is required that we have advanced tools in place that are easy to manage, quick to implement and affordable to sustain. This order invests in achieving all of these objectives so that Gripen will always be in the forefront, both for today and the future,” said Jonas Hjelm, Senior Vice President and head of Saab business area, Aeronautics.

The main part of the order concerns operations at Saab’s facilities in Sweden, in the towns of Linköping, Gothenburg, Järfälla, Arboga and Växjö.
