Saab wins FMV missile integration contract

Defence and security company Saab has received a four-year SEK312m (£203m) order from FMV – the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration – regarding the integration of the active radar-guided Beyond Visual Range (BVR) missile, Meteor.

The integration means that Meteor will be adapted to other Gripen systems, such as the radar and displays.

The order includes test flights and test firing, as well as the integration of Meteor with support and maintenance systems such as simulators and planning computers.

The Swedish Gripen C/D aircraft will also have a two-way datalink for communication between the aircraft and the missile once it has been fired.
