Saab Installs S-Rig Gripen Simulator In Brazil

Saab inaugurated the S-Rig (Systems Rig) Gripen simulator at the Gripen Design and Development Network (GDDN) in Gavião Peixoto, São Paulo State, Brazil on November 25.

According to the company, it is the first Gripen development simulator installed outside of Sweden. The new simulator is part of the technology transfer programme for the new Brazilian fighter under a partnership between Saab, Embraer, Atech, AEL Sistemas and the Brazilian Air Force (FAB).

The simulator will be used for development tests and for verification of systems and sub-systems of Gripen in Brazil, especially of systems developed at the GDDN. It will also test the functionalities of equipment produced elsewhere by other Brazilian partner companies of the programme.

The simulator also will support the activities of the Gripen Flight Test Center (GFTC) that is to be installed at the GDDN in 2020, Saab said.

“The simulator is an important development tool that will enable engineers to test new software and other functions, while also enabling pilots to prepare for flight tests by conducting tests on the platform prior to the actual flight,” said Mikael Franzén, head of the Gripen Brazil business unit at Saab’s business area Aeronautics.
