Saab secures framework agreement with US Army

Swedish aerospace and defence company Saab has secured a long-term framework agreement with the US Army Program Executive Office of Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI).

The framework agreement covers radio systems for communication (LT2-IRS) for live training with a potential total sum of approximately SEK260m (£25.5m).

Covering an initial one-year term with options for two more years, the agreement involves the production and fielding of seven radio-based communication systems over the next three years.

The first system will be delivered in November 2011 with an additional instrumentation system delivered every eight months to seven US Army homestations worldwide.
