The Gripen NG demonstrator will be displayed for the first time to international public outside Sweden during the UK’s Farnborough International Air Show.

The demonstrator will be on display until 23 July.

The demonstrator is a flying platform for the development of new technologies and features incorporated into the Gripen NG aircraft.

Gripen NG, a next-generation fighter, has significantly increased combat range and endurance, increased payload and super-cruise capability.

The programme is equipped with a completely new avionics systems structure to make it easy and cost effective to incorporate new functionality or integrate new hardware.
