Saab has joined forces with Brazil’s Atech Negocios em Technologia to support the Gripen NG programme.

Atech Negocios has been chosen to produce simulators, training systems and ground support systems for the Gripen NG multirole fighter being produced for the Brazilian Air Force.

The programme was signed between Saab and the Brazilian Federal Government (Ministry of Defense through the Aeronautics Command, COMAER) in October 2014.

As part of this programme, several new fundamental systems and capabilities are flight tested and demonstrated for Gripen NG.

These new systems and capabilities will also form the basis for further upgrades of the current Gripen C/D fleet, Saab said on its website.

Saab Brazil Gripen programme director Mikael Franzén said: "Saab and Atech enter into a partnership regarding the development simulators, training systems and ground support systems for Gripen NG.
