Saab has received an order from the Royal Thai Air Force for an upgrade of Thailand’s national Air Command and Control System.
Saab will upgrade and further enhance the Royal Thai Air Force’s Air Command and Control System (ACCS) which is based on Saab’s 9AIR C4I product and has been in operation with the Royal Thai Air Force since 2010. The system is a core part of Thailand’s net-centric air defence capability which also includes Saab’s Gripen fighter, Erieye airborne early warning system and tactical data links.
9AIR C4I is Saab’s tactical air operations command and control system. It provides situational awareness and complete control of weapons, sensors and communications.
Saab’s upgrade proposal for the Thai system was selected through a competitive evaluation process and demonstrates that Saab can ensure that the system remains fully operational, effective and future-proofed.
“This order demonstrates the competiveness of the 9AIR C4I product. Our advanced Air Command and Control System provides the Royal Thai Air Force with a vital part of its air defence system,” says Anders Carp, Senior Vice President and Head of Saab’s business area Surveillance.
The ACCS upgrade combines new hardware and software that will sustain, enhance and expand the system’s nationwide capabilities for future operations. The work will take place at Saab in Järfälla, Sweden and the contract will run until 2020.
