Saab wins British order for counter-IED training

Saab has received an order from the UK Ministry of Defence to provide counter-improvised explosive device (counter-IED) training for the British Army in the UK and internationally.

The duration of the contract is one year and the order sum amounts to approximately £11m.

Saab will employ its instrumented training system, called ATES C-IED, to deliver the training.

ATES C-IED is a fully instrumented tactical engagement system developed to meet the training needs of current and future IED threats and wider aspects of counter-insurgency.

Saab will provide a managed training service with field teams comprising subject-matter experts to support the use of ATES C-IED and delivery of post-action analysis.
