Saab, Damen Partner for Brazilian Navy’s Corvettes Contract
Tamandare-class Corvette

Saab and Damen Naval Shipbuilding are partnering to compete for the Brazilian Navy’s corvettes contract.

The partnership will supply four Tamandaré Class Corvettes (CCT) for the Brazilian Navy contest.

Saab will provide, in case the partners' proposal is chosen by the Brazilian Navy, the complete combat system including Saab 9LV Combat Management System (CMS). The Saab 9LV is an open architecture CMS known for its integration of third-party modules as well as mission equipment, the company said in a statement Monday.

Damen will be responsible for supplying the ship Sigma 10514, an off-the-shelf product that will be adapted according to the requirements of the client.

This project is proposing a large technology transfer programme, in addition to partnerships with local companies, benefiting the Brazilian defence industry.
