Saab’s product portfolio for the Defexpo 2012 includes products from the air, land, naval and civil security domains. A 80-strong delegation from Saab operations around the world are coming together to participate in Defexpo 2012 and share knowledge and experience from their respective domains. At the exhibition this year, Saab is displaying a majority of the product portfolio. The focus is on land and naval systems, with a highlight on the RBS 70 NG missile system. Saab is also displaying its underwater AUV systems and the C4I systems, along with camouflage and cutting edge technologies across domains.
Speaking on the importance of Defexpo 2012 for Saab CEO Hakan Bushke says: “Saab is growing outside Sweden and India is one of the market areas for Saab. In fact we believe India is a home market for the future, a market that has the potential to be larger than our European markets.” According to Jan Widerstrom, Chairman, Saab India Technologies Pvt. Ltd., “India is one of our most important markets. The main theme for Saab for this Defexpo is Teaming Up With India in Defence and Security. We really, truly believe that partnership is the way forward to work in India and to be able to fully support the market.”
As Saab celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2012, the emphasis is on partnerships and teaming up for defence and security solutions with India.
Inderjit Sial, Managing Director, Saab India Technologies Pvt Ltd, says “Defexpo is a biennial opportunity to showcase the full range of products. As India is looking at a high level of defence spending and technology transfer, we see the Defexpo as an opportunity not merely to display our capabilities but also scout for partners who can absorb the transferred technology.”
