Saab announced Monday that it has signed a SEK 100 million ($120,000) contract with Pilatus Aircraft to provide the mission and graphics computer, with a digital map function, for the Pilatus PC-21.

The contract covers development, adaptation and delivery of an open system mission computer, plus the digital map software function, for the PC-21 advanced turboprop trainer aircraft produced by Switzerland's Pilatus Aircraft. Series production deliveries will start in 2016 and will continue over the life of the PC-21 program. The contract provides options for additional suborders that could include further cockpit functions and systems.

"Both we and Pilatus are dedicated to the introduction of technology that gives aircrew superior situational awareness, and delivers a competitive edge to their aircraft," Ronny Nykvist, head of Saab business unit Avionics Systems said.
