Bigger, Better And Not The Same At All



The Swedish Air Force recently got the go-ahead to build prototypes of the new JAS 39E Gripen fighter. This happened mainly because Switzerland has agreed to buy it. The Swedish Air Force hopes this will persuade their own government to buy some of these aircraft. Formerly known as the Gripen NG (Next Generation) fighters, the JAS 39E will be heavier (17 tons), have better electronics, a heavier payload (over four tons), and be a two seater version better able to handle ground attack and electronic warfare duties. The Swedish Air Force already has 120 JAS 39C Gripens in service and the prospect of more defense budget cuts made the purchase of 60 Gripen NGs (at a total cost of nearly $5 billion) seemingly impossible. But the JAS 39E excited several export customers and that made all the difference.

Sweden is describing the 39E as a "new aircraft" compared to the earlier JAS 39 models. There's some truth to that, as the 39E is a little longer and heavier, but still looks like a Gripen, The 39E is full of more expensive, and capable, electronics, but that's not obvious by just looking at the new model. The first 39E is expected to fly next year and enter service in 2018.

The Gripen has already undergone one major enhancement to the JAS 39C model. Improvements included inflight refueling, better electronics, and improved ground attack capability. The C model was also compliant with NATO standards for warplanes. This was necessary for export sales. There was also a two seat D model for training.

The 14 ton JAS-39C is roughly comparable to the latest versions of the F-16. The Gripen is small but can carry up to 3.6 tons of weapons. With the increasing use of smart bombs this is adequate. Often regarded as an also-ran in the current crop of "modern jet fighters", the Swedish Gripen is proving to be more competition than the major players (the F-16, F-18, F-35, Eurofighter, Rafale, MiG-29, and Su-27) expected. Put simply, Gripen does a lot of little (but important) things right and costs about half as much (at about $35 million each) as its major competitors. More importantly, Gripen also costs about half as much, per flight hour, to operate. In effect, Gripen provides the ruggedness and low cost of Russian aircraft with the high quality and reliability of Western aircraft. For many nations this is an appealing combination. The Gripen is easy to use (both for pilots and ground crews) and capable of doing all jet fighter jobs (air defense, ground support, and reconnaissance) well enough.

The JAS 39 entered active service in 1997 and has had an uphill battle getting export sales. Sweden does not have the diplomatic clout of its major competitors, so they have to push quality and service. Swedish warplanes and products in general have an excellent reputation in both categories. Nevertheless, the Gripen is still expected to lose out on a lot of sales simply because politics took precedence over performance.

Saab Signs Support and Development Agreement with FMV for Gripen






14:17 GMT, June 29, 2012 Saab has received four orders from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration, FMV, for Gripen development, support and maintenance through 2016. The orders entails an initial order of SEK 3,6 billion* plus options for additional orders amounting to a maximum of SEK 2 billion until December 2016.

The agreement includes several parts: A performance-based support and maintenance solution, performance-based logistics as well associated ground resources for upkeep. Also included is an addition to Gripen development package (MS20) as well as studies and definition activities for further Gripen development.

"Gripen has already proven its growth potential by carrying out different mission task that it was not initially intended for, like last summers operation Unified Protector in Libya," says Lennart Sindahl, head of Saab's business area Aeronautics. "It is therefore important for the future that we can continue to add new capabilities by request from FMV to a flight system that has already proven to be of world class today."

Performance-based logistics entails that Saab provides guaranteed service times for systems and subsystems that are included in Gripen. Activities included in the contract are for example, supplying the Swedish Armed Forces with spare parts, maintenance of aircraft systems, technical engineering support, technical publications and logistics solutions for operation of the Gripen system in Sweden, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Thailand. Saab has previously had several different support agreements for Gripen, all of which are now replaced by this long-term contract.

“This long-term contract enables Saab to conduct support operations in a more effective manner, compared to previous agreements," says Lars-Erik Wige, head of Saab's Support and Services business area. "Efficiency and availability are key words."

The orders that are placed under the options included in the agreement will be placed once a year. The options encompass support and maintenance operations that are decisive to running aviation operations with Gripen, such as technical publications and repairs.
The work will mainly take place at Saab's facilities in Linköping, Arboga, Järfälla and Gothenburg, Sweden.

Gripen operational cost lowest of all western fighters: Jane’s

The study conducted by IHS Jane's Aerospace and Defense Consulting, compared the operational costs of the Gripen, Lockheed Martin F-16, Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet, Dassault’s Rafale, Eurofighter Typhoon and the F-35 aircraft.





The operational cost of the Swedish Saab Gripen aircraft is the lowest among a flightline of modern fighters, confirmed a White Paper submitted by the respected international defense publishing group IHS Jane’s, in response to a study commissioned by Saab.

The paper says that in terms of ‘fuel used, pre-flight preparation and repair, and scheduled airfield-level maintenance together with associated personnel costs’, “The Saab Gripen is the least expensive of the aircraft under study in terms of cost per flight hour (CPFH).”

The study, conducted by Edward Hunt, Senior Consultant, at IHS Jane’s Aerospace and Defense Consulting, compared the operational costs of the Gripen, Lockheed Martin F-16, Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet, Dassault’s Rafale, Eurofighter Typhoon and the F-35 aircraft.

“At an estimated $4,700 per hour (2012 USD), the Gripen compares very favorably with the Block 40 / 50 F-16s which are its closest competitor at an estimated $7,000 per hour,” says the report, adding, “The F-35 and twin-engined designs are all significantly more expensive per flight hour owing to their larger size, heavier fuel usage and increased number of airframe and systems parts to be maintained and repaired. IHS Jane’s believes that aircraft unit cost and size is therefore roughly indicative of comparative CPFH.”

In comparison, the figure for the F/A-18 Super Hornet ranged from USD 11000 to USD 24000, depending on degree of operational capability. The figure for the Rafale was USD 16500 per flying hour and number for the Eurofighter Typhoon, derived from British Parliamentary figures and seeming to cover only fuel usage, was USD 8200. But Jane’s estimate of the actual Cost Per Flying Hour for the Eurofighter, keeping in mind supplies and scheduled maintenance raised the figure up to USD 18000.

The cost of operation of the F-35 appears to be in a whole other league. Jane’s cites Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) estimates for the conventional F-35 A, assuming operational service over 30 years with 200 hours per year for each aircraft, to amount to USD 21000 per hour of flight. The paper also sources US Navy projections of the cost of operation of the F-35 B & C variants until the year 2029, which come to USD 31000 per flight hour.

The report says the figures were based on data sourced from the respective operating militaries and governments, disclosed international fighter competition cost figures (Rafale, F-18 E / F, Gripen), manufacturer-stated figures (F-35, Rafale, F-18 E / F, Gripen) and IHS Jane’s estimates for all aircraft.

There are several caveats to this assessment. “Owing to the differing methods of calculating aircraft operating cost per flight hour and the large number of interlinked factors that affect such a calculation, IHS Jane’s believes that any flight hour cost figure can only be regarded as indicative and that there is no single correct answer to such a calculation,” says the report, but adds, “However, we believe that our results are of considerable merit and provide a useful benchmark when considering the costs associated with operating contemporary high performance combat aircraft.”

The report stresses that ‘without access to comprehensive military data over a significant timeframe’ the results ‘can only be regarded as approximate’ and ‘are an average cost across an entire fleet’.

The report says it is most confident about the data and its conclusions on the Gripen, F-16 and the F/A-18 ‘with good primary and secondary source data supported by logical results from our deductive modeling.’

The numbers for the Eurofighter Typhoon and the Rafale are less certain, in comparison, but the report submits that ‘the comparative modeling output appears to confirm IHS Jane’s estimates’ for them.

The report is least sure about the operational cost of the F-35 costs ‘owing to the absence of actual in-service data’. “IHS Jane’s does not feel that the modeled fuel cost figure is representative of likely CPFH costs,” it says.

Besides using primary and secondary sources and their own databases, IHS Jane’s also considered data thrown up by a ‘modelled assessment of relative cost based on fuel usage’. In the absence of a single global standard for calculating cost per flight hour IHS Jane’s arrived upon a list of factors which would determine this cost.

Saab Takes Next Step In Fighter Development




August 13, 2012
Bill Sweetman Washington

Sweden's slow but determined entry onto the world fighter stage is taking another step forward. At the same time, Saab is talking more in public about networked air combat capabilities that rest on decades of experience, much of which was long kept secret.

Saab and the Swedish and South African air forces are moving to establish a new Fighter Weapons School at the SAAF's Overberg base, in the southern Cape area, to develop advanced combat skills within the growing world community of Gripen pilots. The first class is due to open in October 2013.

In announcing the FWS, the company discussed its concept of networked tactics for the new JAS 39E/F fighter. Ultimately, Overberg's expansive ranges could provide an ideal environment for this technology.

A former site for secret South African/Israeli missile tests, Overberg hosts the SAAF's test squadron and was chosen because it offers access to maritime, desert and high-elevation training areas, live ordnance areas and instrumented ranges with land targets. According to Saab South Africa President Magnus Lewis-Olsson, the goal is “to make good pilots great,” and the FWS will specialize in providing advanced skills to midcareer pilots who can then teach those skills to their own air forces.

The school will initially offer one focused two-month course per year, with possible topics including the use of targeting pods or helmet-mounted displays. It is expected that one or two pilots from each operator nation will attend, and although the first courses will be led by Swedish or South African pilots, it is expected that later courses will be planned by FWS graduates, who will also form the instructor pool.

The SAAF will provide the school with between four and six JAS 39C/D Gripens, plus aggressors (opposition aircraft) and targets if necessary, and each student will fly 20 day and night sorties. Discussions with other Gripen operators have already started. Airborne early warning and control aircraft or tankers could be added later.

The Overberg project starts modestly by world fighter training standards, but is an important step for Sweden, which with its traditions of neutrality had engaged in no international exercises or training before joining the 2006 Cope Thunder exercise in Alaska. It is also intended to strengthen links among the five air forces operating the Gripen—Sweden, South Africa, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Thailand.

Saab has unveiled its concept of “wide spectrum combat” (Wiscom) to exploit the potential of the next-generation JAS 39E/F and C/D Plus, the latter being a C/D retrofitted with E/F avionics and sensors.

One part of the Wiscom concept is the idea of a “flexible antenna pool” in which all aircraft in a flight share sensor and target data automatically. Another is “silent swarm ingress” where a flight enters combat in a widely dispersed pattern, with primary sensors being infrared search and track (IRST), active, electronically scanned array (AESA) radars operating in passive mode, and electronic surveillance measures (ESM).

Under Wiscom, AESA transmissions are restricted and “random”—that is, the aircraft in a flight will transmit at different times, making it difficult to track them by emissions. Swedish engineers have noted that data-linked radars can share plots—not just tracks—and take simultaneous range-rate measurements, allowing two radars to determine a target's velocity almost instantly. Finally, Saab envisages the use of the high-energy MBDA Meteor air-to-air missile to engage from side and rear aspects where targets are less likely to detect the threat.

For air-to-surface missions, Saab is studying an improved RBS 15ER (extended range) version of its own cruise missile with improved land-attack capability. In maritime attack, Wiscom tactics would allow a flight of Gripens to assess the target formation and launch up to two missiles each from different directions with simultaneous arrival times, saturating the target's ability to defend itself.

While other fighter programs claim the ability to use real-time networked tactics, Wiscom is not entirely new, but an extension of Swedish technology developed since the 1960s, when data links were introduced secretly to bypass Soviet communications jamming. The first two-way aircraft-to-aircraft fighter link was deployed on the JA 37 Viggen in the 1980s. It was disclosed after the Viggen was retired in 2005 that it was capable of a “silent” AIM-120 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile attack, performed by two aircraft using their PS 46/A radars in passive mode.

The original Tactical Information Data Link System (Tidls) fitted to the JAS 39A/B was designed to display the position, bearing and speed of all four aircraft in a formation, including basic status information such as fuel and weapons status. Tidls information, along with radar, EW and mapping data, appears on the central multi-function display. Detailed symbols distinguish between friendlies, hostiles and unidentified targets and show which member of the flight has targeted each hostile. Wiscom blends this capability with AESA, IRST and improved electronic support measures.

The Smart Fighter




Having superior systems in your fighter is good but not enough. It is also very important to use these systems in the right way i.e. employing the right tactics. When systems become more complex, the possibilities to do something really smart increase – just like in chess. On the other hand, the chances of making mistakes also increase – again like in chess. For this reason it is of utmost importance to develop your Concept of Operations(CONOPS) in parallel with the systems. Systems and CONOPS must work together. And this is what Saab does with Gripen NG.

Air-To-Air – WISCOM Adapted BVR Combat

When facing an advanced adversary in a future air-to-air scenario, chances are high that it would become a fight for information in different frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum. In this situation it is important to understand that sensors and communication systems work in the same arena. They are two sides of the same coin and, if not used with care, can be exploited by the enemy. Within the Wide Spectrum Combat concept of Gripen NG this is recognized, and all electromagnetic emissions are looked upon as a whole, as parts of the same game.

In practice, this means that the group of Gripens enter the combat area silently in a randomly spread out swarm. No active emissions are used but all sensors listen passively, including IRST, EW sensors, and the highly advanced AESA radar antenna. This can be complemented with short and random active emissions from the AESA radar. Any data on enemy aircraft is shared with beamed data links, thus enabling long range Meteor missile launches from Gripens with the most geometrically suitable positions within the swarm.

Maritime Strike – With Self Protection

Gripen NG is designed as a true multirole fighter. Not only can it perform several tasks during the same mission, but it can also perform several tasks simultaneously. It can carry Meteors and IRIS-Ts, which are highly advanced long and short range air-to-air weapons making the Gripen well equipped for self defence if an air-to-air combat should occur. Gripen NGs are their own escort! They don’t need anybody else for this.

Multiplied Ability – WISCOM Affects The Other Two



So a fighter system should be WISCOM adapted and should also work well together with the CONOPS. But there is a third thing that is very important as well which is the interface between the human and the machine. This could also be expressed as the interface between CONOPS (employed by the human) and the WISCOM adapted systems (in the machine).

CONOPS and WISCOM are two bars in this diagram, and the link between them is the bar called WIDESCREEN. Now, WIDESCREEN in this context means something much more than only a wide hardware display. It means all parts of the interface where information is passed in both directions between the pilot and the machine. This encompasses displays, touch buttons, regular buttons, control stick, throttle, pedals, sound signals and more. Gripen takes the word WIDESCREEN to another level.

A step forward in the development of WISCOM adapted systems would affect WIDESCREEN and CONOPS and would also open up new possibilities to further develop symbology and tactics.

Multiplied Ability – CONOPS Affects The Other Two

Likewise, when steps are taken forward in development of CONOPS, this would also affect WISCOM and WIDESCREEN; it would open up new possibilities to further develop systems and symbology.

Dans le domaine de l'armement parfois il est difficile de faire la part des choses entre le véritable argument opérationnel et l'argument de vente marketing, je ne suis pas sûr que cette IPODisation des avions de combat présente une véritable valeur ajoutée pour l'aviation militaire, je ne suis pas contre, mais je ne suis pas sûr de son utilité.
Je pense qu'à l'instar des produits Hi Tech civils, plusieurs innovations dites ''technologiques'' ne sont en réalité que de simples relookings pour créer de nouvelles générations de produits et renouveler ainsi les cycles de vente, même si ces générations ne correspondent pas toujours à des innovations technologiques réelles.

Saab a admis le versement de pots-de-vin en Afrique du Sud

L'industriel de l'armement suédois Saab, qui souhaite vendre 22 avions Gripen à la Suisse, a été confronté ces dernières années à des accusations de corruption dans différentes pays. Dans le cas de l'Afrique du Sud, l'entreprise a admis que des dessous-de-table avaient été versés, comme en témoigne son rapport d'activité 2011.L'affaire concerne le plus important achat d'armement jamais effectué dans ce pays, d'un montant total d'environ 10 milliards de dollars, notamment pour des avions de combat et d'entraînement, a indiqué à l'ats Andrew Feinstein. Cet ex-député du parti gouvernemental ANC au parlement sud-africain (1997-2001) est l'auteur du livre "The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade" (Le monde de l'ombre: à l'intérieur du commerce mondial des armes).

Saab aims to export 300 Gripens in the next ten years

Swedish Saab Group, the manufacturer of Gripen fighter aircrafts, aims to export at least 300 Gripens within the next ten years. The company speculates that Royal Thai Air Force might plan to buy up to 40 Gripens in the future, reported SaabGroup.com.

According to a news report in the Swedish daily Business World, Saab’s Head of Gripen Exports Eddy de la Motte says that Saab’s goal is to export at least 300 Gripens within the next ten years.

“If this objective is achieved, Saab will have 10 percent of the available market,” Saab’s Head of Gripen Exports Eddy de la Motte adds.

He also says that Saab’s visions include the establishing of Gripen NG as the world’s leading single engine multirole combat fighter, and to launch a Sea Gripen version for selected markets, within a joint development programme.

At the moment, Gripens’ sales are accounted for 240 aircrafts from six countries including Sweden, Thailand, United Kingdom, Chez Republic, Hungary and South Africa. The company aims to export more to the European market, Latin America and Asia.

Royal Thai Air Force is the first air force in Southeast Asia to have JAS-39 Gripen base. The company reckons that India might be its next client in Asia as the country has shown interest in Gripen NG.

Saab and AKAER expand technology transfer

The program of technology transfer in the area of aerostructures Gripen supersonic fighter for the Brazilian Akaer, entered a new phase with the completion of the design of the rear fuselage of the aircraft and the start of production.

Akaer is the first Brazilian company to participate in the development of a fifth generation supersonic fighter.

A group of five engineers Akaer going to Sweden this month, to monitor the production of parts developed in Brazil and set the planning of the next phase, involving the central fuselage design of the Gripen.

Akaer is also responsible for the design of the wings of the fighter, which will be made ​​of composite material. In 2009 Akaer was hired by Swedish Saab Gripen to develop parts of the new version of the game, which is being offered to the Brazilian Air Force (FAB), the F-X2 competition.The dispute involves Boeing, the U.S., and Dassault of France.

The agreement between Saab and Akaer predicts that 80% of the structure of the new game is made ​​by Brazilian, regardless of the outcome of the F-X2 competition. According to Saab, the Akaer will also provide part of the structure of the 22 Gripen NG being acquired by the Swiss Air Force and lot 40-60 model aircraft already announced by the Swedish Air Force.

"If the Gripen has been selected by the Brazilian government, part of the production will be in Brazil. Akaer, however, has already been selected by Saab as one of the leading suppliers of hunting, enabling the company to meet all requests for purchase of the Gripen world, "says the advisor's marketing Akaer, Kenzo Takatori.

Over the past three years, according Takatori, more than 50 engineers Swedes were in São José dos Campos to work together with engineers in the design of aerostructures Akaer Gripen.Currently, four engineers Swedes residing in San Jose, due to the design of technology transfer.

In May, Saab announced the acquisition of 15% of Akaer. The operation, known as a loan convertible into shares, foresees a stake in Saab Akaer up to 40%.

The agreement, according to the president of Akaer, Cesar Augusto da Silva, is part of strategy to transform the company into a Brazilian integrator of aeronautical structures, making it more competitive globally.

Non, 40 % c'est l'objectif d'acquisition du capital de Akaer par Saab, elle est actuellement de 15 %

Pour le moment Akaer ne produit rien, elle participe au design de certaines parties du fuselage du NG, avec une promesse de production locale de 80% du fuselage si Saab gagne le contrat, en plus d'une promesse de cooproduction du fuselage des futures 22 gripen suisses et 40 à 60 gripen suédois.

Coupe possible dans l'acquisition du Gripen inquiète les militaires en Suède
Publié le 20/11/2012 par Fernando Valduga en militaire

Le gouvernement suédois a censément peut couper l'achat d'avions de chasse fabriqués par Saab pour seulement 40, suscitant des craintes quant à la capacité future de son armée de l'air. Un porte-parole du parti est également préoccupé par moins d'acquisitions mettra la Suède sur la façon d'avoir une armée de l'air plus petit que la Norvège.


Doute sur la taille de l'ordre de l'Etat est encore compliquée par l'absence de certitude sur la vente de l'avion pour la Suisse. La Suède a clairement indiqué que cela annulera le financement du programme si l'entreprise échoue suisse, tout en parcourant une série d'obstacles.

En Suède, le souci est que le Premier ministre suédois Fredrik Reinfeldt de centre-droit l'administration, cédant aux pressions de plus en plus à réduire la dette publique et l'achat JAS39 combattants Gripen NG E / F.

«Le gouvernement a d'abord été porté à acquérir entre 80 et 100 combattants. Il a été réduit à 60 à 80 unités le mois dernier. Maintenant, il parle d'acheter des avions de 40-60 ", a déclaré Staffan Danielsson, un membre du Parlement à la décision de la partie centrale, qui siège au Comité de la défense nationale du Parlement.

"L'ordre ne doit pas descendre en dessous de 60. Même à ce niveau, la capacité de l'armée de l'air sera plus limité ", at-il dit.

Le gouvernement, qui a largement abandonné son statut de leader régional de la défense, une position qui dépendait de l'armée de l'air avec un maximum de 150 combattants de la ligne de front, qui devrait présenter sa prochaine génération de l'acquisition d'avions (NG) prévue pour décision au Parlement d'ici la mi-Décembre.

Si le gouvernement de réduire sa commande de Gripen, la Suède pourrait affaiblir votre capacité de combattre sur la ligne de front et de menacer leur capacité à fournir une dissuasion crédible pour attaquer national et régional, Danielsson dit.

En 2004, l'armée de l'air suédoise comptait plus de 200 avions de combat Gripen versions A / B et C / D. Le nombre est passé à 100 avions C / D après 2008.

Le gouvernement propose maintenant de réorganiser la structure de la défense aérienne de la Suède pour un seul type de combattant, le Gripen E / F, éliminer progressivement les autres versions de l'Gripen A / B et C / D en raison du coût.

"Comme le coût est toujours un facteur en jeu, l'armée aura accès à des systèmes E / F et C / D de fonctionnement en parallèle pendant la période de transition jusqu'à ce que la Force aérienne suédoise a une gamme complète de chasseur de prochaine génération en service. Je ne vois pas pourquoi cela ne peut pas arriver ", a déclaré Danielsson.

Cependant, le major-général Michael Bydén, chef d'état major de l'armée de l'air suédoise, a rejeté l'idée d'exploiter deux systèmes de combat modernes en même temps.

"Il ne serait pas possible de faire fonctionner deux systèmes distincts dans le climat économique actuel. Il ne serait pas possible, en termes d'accessibilité, exécuter deux systèmes ", Bydén déclaré dans un communiqué.

La réticence du gouvernement à répondre à la demande du commandement des Forces armées (CFA) d'augmenter les dépenses de défense après 2013 fait le chef le général Sverker Goranson défense en Juillet, a déclaré que l'armée serait "obligé de quitter pratiquement cessé Armée Marine et la Force aérienne. "

L'AFC souhaite que le budget total était d'un niveau annuel compris entre 6,5 milliards et 6,7 milliards de dollars. A ce niveau, il pourrait éviter des coupures dans des domaines tels que les exercices, la formation des pilotes, la surveillance aérienne et la participation à des missions internationales de routine et de recrutement.

Les préoccupations de commande porté sa participation dans l'acquisition et de combattants de la défense au cours d'une audience publique sur les projets militaires et de financement organisée par le Riksdag, le 8 novembre. Goranson assisté à la réunion.

"La Suède a besoin d'un minimum de 60 à 80 avions de combat pour répondre aux besoins évalués des menaces techniques et opérationnels auxquels nous sommes confrontés. Ce nombre doit être de préférence de 80 ", Goranson dit à la réunion.

En outre, le chef de la défense a fourni des estimations de coûts pour l'entretien de la flotte actuelle de 100 Gripen C / Ds, et une autre estimation qui couvrait le coût probable de l'achat d'un chasse fabriqués à l'étranger.

Selon les estimations de l'AFC, l'armée de l'air suédoise aurait besoin de 8,9 milliards pour entretenir et moderniser sa flotte actuelle de Gripen C / D entre 2022 et 2042. Le coût d'acquisition des avions de chasse de 40-60 multimission produits à l'étranger a été estimé à 16,3 milliards de dollars. Cette estimation inclut le coût flyaway, la logistique, la formation et des systèmes d'armes.

"Qu'est-ce matérialisé très clairement de la réunion est que le financement public du projet proposé par le gouvernement pour acquérir la chasse est inappropriée. Ce projet devrait être correctement financé. La discussion sur les partenariats internationaux pour le développement du Gripen E / F est bonne, mais sans ordre réel, est maintenant juste une distraction », a déclaré Fredrik Olovsson, le chef de l'opposition parlementaire social-démocrate Comité des finances.

Les frais préliminaires pour Saab, soumis au gouvernement suggèrent que la société peut offrir le Gripen E / F d'environ $ 80 millions par jet.

En outre, le gouvernement estime que le coût total de l'acquisition de 40-60 aéronefs, y compris le développement et les coûts de cycle de vie, à 13,5 milliards de dollars. L'armée de l'air suédoise s'attend à prendre livraison du premier avion Gripen E / F, en 2023, le jeu devrait être en service jusqu'en 2043.

Un partenariat équilibré avec la Suisse

Le scénario de Saab pour la production de série est basée sur la réception d'une commande ferme pour 22 Gripen E / F Suisse. Suède, en Août, une livraison garantie par un coût fixe de 3,25 milliards de dollars.

La fragilité de la commande suisse est apparu le 14 Novembre, lorsque le ministre de la Défense suisse Ueli Maurer a dit qu'il ne savait pas si le Parlement approuve un plan de financement pour l'achat du Gripen E / F.

"Ce sera difficile, mais nous espérons qu'il puisse être approuvé. Il sera beaucoup plus difficile si la décision finale est décidée par référendum. Nous pourrions faire face à une forte opposition, "Maurer a déclaré dans un communiqué.

Pour sa part, Saab affirme qu'elle peut faire un profit sur le projet Gripen-NG, si les commandes sont au-dessus de 60 jets.

"Nous avons présenté au gouvernement suédois avec un concours et discutent activement un futur ordre du Gripen-NG. Dans le même temps, l'intérêt mondial pour le Gripen reste élevé ", a déclaré chef de la direction de Saab Hakan Buskhe.

Les parties se sont inquiétés en Septembre lorsque le gouvernement suédois a révélé qu'elle avait inclus une clause de désistement de son budget 2013, ce qui lui permet de retirer le projet Gripen-NG, si la vente en Suisse ne sont pas mises en œuvre et qu'aucun autre associé internationale peut être trouvée.

Ministre de la Défense Karin Enstrom défend le bilan du gouvernement suédois des dépenses de défense, en montrant un plan visant à fournir un montant supplémentaire de 300 millions d'euros pour l'armée au cours des 10 prochaines années. L'AFC soutient que augmenté en moyenne de 30 millions de dollars par an sur la période, est loin de répondre à la principale force opérationnelle quotidienne et les besoins d'acquisition.

Et un porte-parole du parti avertit que si les réductions passer comme l'a proposé, la Force aérienne suédoise obtenir une taille plus petite que la Norvège. L'Armée de l'Air norvégienne dispose de 46 F-16 combattants, qui devraient bénéficier d'un supplément, et finalement remplacé par 52 F-35 Joint Strike Fighters.

"La Suède a changé d'être la principale puissance militaire dans la région nordique avec l'Air Force et son plus gros budget de la défense, pour l'instant rester derrière la Norvège en termes de dépenses. La Norvège a également bientôt avoir une plus grande force aérienne », a déclaré Peter Radberg, porte-parole de la défense pour le Parti Vert. "Ce que nous avons est une défense cruellement de financement et qui marche avec des béquilles. Si les militaires sont tenus d'effectuer une grande partie du coût d'un nouveau Gripen JAS projet, ils vont tomber. "

Saab Says Gripen Export Chances Rise as F-35 Buyers Review Plans


Saab AB (SAABB) says sales prospects for its Gripen fighter are improving as country’s such as Denmark and Canada reconsider buying the Lockheed Martin (LMT) Corp. F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and others set fighter purchase plans.
Sales of current model Gripens and the NG, the next generation model, may exceed 300 units in the next two decades, Eddy de La Motte, head of Gripen Exports said today. A lease of fighters to Malaysia, a new sale to Finland and a follow-on deal with Thailand are possible, he said in an interview.
European and U.S. combat jet makers such as Boeing Co. (BA), Lockheed Martin and European Aeronautic, Defence & Space Co. are battling in numerous overseas markets as domestic orders come to an end, risking the closure of production facilities. Saab secured Gripen’s future with an agreement from its home country, Sweden, and Switzerland to jointly develop the new version to be delivered from 2018.
“We can now offer a fixed price, fixed performance and fixed timetable,” de la Motte said. “The outlook is better than anything I’ve seen.”
Canada opened talks with Saab after the country in December decided to review options amid concerns over mounting costs for the F-35 it was set to buy. “We have got a formal request,” de la Motte said, while adding a decision has not been taken to mount a sales campaign.
“Canada has strong ties to the U.S. and we are really looking at trying to assess our chances,” he said.
More Bullish
The Stockholm-based company is more bullish about the outlook in Denmark, another F-35 program partner, where the government said last week it would pick a combat aircraft in 2015. “It is ideal timing,” de la Motte said.
Brazil is among the country’s also considering Gripen. The government recently asked Saab and rival bidders Boeing and Dassault Aviation SA (AM) to extend their offers beyond a March deadline as it considers its plans, de la Motte said.
A lease to Malaysia would be arranged through the Swedish government, rather than Saab directly and may involve as many as 20 planes, he said. The Czech Republic, a current lessor of Gripens, is also in talks with Sweden to extend its use of the jet.
Contract timing, particularly in Eastern Europe, is in flux because of budget pressures, de la Motte said. Prospects there include sales to Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovenia, he said.
Saab secured a 47.2 billion Swedish krona ($7.32 billion) development pact for the Gripen NG in February and expects to book an order to build 60 of them before year end, Chief Executive Officer Hakan Buskhe said at the time. Switzerland plans to buy 22 aircraft.

Swiss industry to become single supplier of major Gripen E components

Defence and security company Saab has taken the strategic decision to find Swiss companies to develop, produce and assemble major components of the Gripen E aircraft, including the rear fuselage. More than 35 per cent of the work will be placed in the French- and Italian-speaking regions. This will create business volume for Swiss industry of approximately 200 MCHF and more than 500,000 man hours of work.

The decision to grow the Gripen E supplier base in Switzerland is an important step for Saab’s Swiss Industrial Participation (SIP) programme. It demonstrates the company’s willingness and commitment to deliver major direct SIP packages for Gripen E and results from a continuous dialogue with armasuisse, Swissmem, GRPM (Groupe Romande Pour le Matérial de Défense et de Sécurité) and the Swiss Gripen Group (SGG for Direct Industrial Participation DIP).

The main areas of focus for the Swiss industry work will commence with the development, production and assembly of five major items;

Gripen E rear fuselage
Gripen E pylons (weapon stations),
Gripen E tail cone,
Gripen E air brakes, and the
Gripen E external fuel “drop” tanks
These initial packages represent over 500,000 man hours of work and business volume of 200 MCHF for Swiss industry, and is related to the 60 Gripen Es ordered by Sweden and 22 Gripen E fighters that may be ordered by Switzerland. Saab is looking for long-term partners to the Gripen program and will place more than 35 per cent of this business package in the French- and Italian-speaking regions.

“We are currently in discussions with Swiss companies, including Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, throughout all regions of Switzerland that can be involved in this major project”, says Lennart Sindahl, Head of Business Area Aeronautics at Saab, and adds “We are looking for companies with advanced skills and strong competitiveness that can be our partners for the long-term and to quickly seal their involvement in the program.”

Future potential of the Swiss involvement

As a Gripen E supplier and partner, Swiss industry participation is not limited to the Swedish and potential Swiss aircraft, but includes future orders of Gripen E.

The Swiss partner companies will have full access to the technology involved in the work package. The transfer of knowledge will provide the companies with the skills and competence to compete for major orders from other aircraft manufacturers in the civil and defence sectors.

Saab’s Swiss Industrial Participation Programme

In line with armasuisse offset policy, Saab is committed to delivering a regional distribution of SIP, with 5 per cent in Italian-speaking, 30 per cent in French-speaking and 65 per cent in German-speaking Switzerland. Saab has a commitment to deliver SIP business valued at 100 per cent of the Gripen contract value. By the end of 2012, Saab and partners had delivered approximately 250 MCHF in business with more than 100 Swiss companies.

Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions ranging from military defence to civil security. Saab has operations and employees on all continents and constantly develops, adopts and improves new technology to meet customers’ changing needs.

A Fighter With Naval DNA

By Romulo Sobral


Besides Brazil, Saab identified future demand for naval fighters in countries like India, Italy and the UK, which, in the coming years will be commissioning new aircraft carriers in their navies. According to Saab, there is a real and viable market for this type of aircraft. Aiming this market, the company is already developing a naval version of JAS-39 Gripen, which aims to be a variant of its newest product, the Gripen NG (Next Generation). This new version was named Sea Gripen.

According to Saab, the requirements established by the Swedish Air Force (Flygvapnet) so that the Gripen had STOL capabilities (Short Takeoff and Landing), i.e. ability to take off and land from short stretches of road, caused the aircraft to present performance and flying qualities similar to those required for aircraft specifically designed to operate from an aircraft carrier.

It was to verify in practice, the "natural vocation" of Gripen to become a naval fighter that I was invited to conduct a flight in Gripen D (two-seater) at the headquarters of Saab in Linköping, Sweden.

The purpose of the flight was to verify that the design requirements of the Gripen confer flight characteristics that demonstrate their conversion potential into a naval version without major and fundamental design changes. Even with very little flight time, the flying qualities present in the aircraft quickly became clear to me. The Saab team, led by Tony Ogilvy, already has identified and mapped all the areas that need special attention and engineering that represent the greatest challenges in Gripen NG "navalization". The focus of the work focuses primarily on correct sizing and positioning of a stop hook, as well as the necessary modifications so that the already robust Gripen's undercarriage is able to withstand the high loads associated with landings on flight deck of an aircraft carrier, since, unlike a highway, it moves on all axes and prints a unique stress not only to the landing gear but to the whole structure of the aircraft.

The characteristics of the Gripen D in fact possess flight qualities compatible with the ones desirable for naval aircraft based on aircraft carriers. The accuracy of flight controls, stability at low speeds, the rapid response of the motor acceleration (which, by the way, is the same engine fitted to the F/A-18 Hornet) and AOA great rapprochement that allows good visibility gives Gripen excellent credentials which may lead the Sea Gripen project to a paradigm shift in the aerospace industry.
