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

The contract includes a new combat management system in order 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. The order value is approximately 4,6 billion SEK ($535 million). Deliveries and other services will take place between 2021 and 2030.

Saab will be the prime contractor and will contract the German shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen for the shipbuilding work while the German company ESG will carry out logistical support.

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

Saab will carry out the work in Germany, Sweden and Australia.
