Saab has received an order from the German Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) to deliver and integrate new naval radars and fire control directors in the German Navy’s Frigates of the Brandenburg-Class (F123). 

The contract includes a new combat management system to completely overhaul the system currently in use on the F123, allowing a low risk integration of the new naval radars and fire control capabilities. 

Saab will be the prime contractor, with the Abeking & Rasmussen shipyard carrying out the shipbuilding work and Elektroniksystem- und Logistik-GMBH (ESG) providing logistical support.

“We are proud that Germany has selected Saab as the combat system provider and integrator for the frigates to be overhauled,” said Micael Johansson, Saab’s President and CEO.

“We look forward to contributing to strengthening Germany’s domestic combat systems integration capability, creating a high proportion of value and service provision in Germany.”

The contract includes delivery and integration of Saab’s 9LV Combat Management System, Sea Giraffe 4A and Sea Giraffe 1X radars, Ceros 200 fire control director as well as third party systems, including Identification Friend of Foe capability. 

It also includes a comprehensive, performance-based logistics package supporting the frigates’ operational capabilities.

The order value is approximately 4,6 billion SEK. Saab will carry out the work in Germany, Sweden and Australia, with deliveries and other services due to take place between 2021 and 2030.
