The order for BOZ-101 EC airborne self-protection systems was placed by the Nato Eurofighter 2000 and Tornado Management Agency (NETMA) on behalf of the German Air Force.

Saab will deliver 29 units of the BOZ-101 EC.

Commenting on the order, Saab Surveillance business area head Anders Carp said: “The well-renowned BOZ pod has been used on the Tornado for many years.

“This large follow-up order for the enhanced version confirms Saab's capability to meet our customers’ need for state-of-the-art self-protection systems to improve their operational capabilities in hostile environments.”

The BOZ-101 EC is a wing-mounted pod that comprises a missile approach warning system in the aft section, as well as a countermeasures dispensing system.

Designed to counter modern IR-guided threats, dispensing can be carried out forward downwards and sideways in two adjustable directions. 

The production of the BOZ-101 EC will be at Saab's sites in Järfälla, Sweden and in Centurion, South Africa.

"This large follow-up order for the enhanced version confirms Saab's capability to meet our customers’ need for state-of-the-art self-protection systems to improve their operational capabilities in hostile environments."

Deliveries under the order will begin later this year and continue through to 2020.

The BOZ-EC self-protection and countermeasures system has been operational on Tornado aircraft in four nations.

Saab is involved in the production of advanced customised self-protection and counter-measure systems.

The company's products are currently installed on modern fighters and helicopters such as Gripen, F-18, and F-15.
