Saab has received three orders for self-protection equipment for the German Air Force’s Tornado fleet. In total, the orders amount to approximately ($15 million) 100 MSEK.

The contracts entail certification and limited production of the BOZ-101 EC podded self-protection system, including the MAW-300 missile approach warning system, as well as development and qualification of a new cockpit control unit for the pod.

“These orders mark the first contract with Germany for Saab’s MAW-300 missile approach warning system. It is a breakthrough and a strong vote of confidence in Saab as an electronic warfare supplier,” says Micael Johansson, Head of Saab’s business area Electronic Defence System.

The German Tornado IDS and ECR aircraft are expected to be in service for many years to come. The BOZ EC family of pods provide the Tornado fleet with integrated missile warning (MAW-300) and cocktail flare dispensing capabilities to defeat advanced threats.

A version of the pod, BOZ-102 EC, is in operational use within the Italian Air Force since 2008.
