The Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) has awarded a contract to Saab to upgrade and further enhance the national air command and control system (ACCS).

ACCS, which is based on Saab’s 9AIR C4I tactical air operations command and control system, has been in service with the RTAF since 2010.

The system forms a major part of the country’s network-centric air defence capability.

Other key components in Thailand’s air defence capability include Saab’s Gripen fighter, Erieye airborne early warning system and tactical data links.

“Our advanced air command and control system provides the Royal Thai Air Force with a vital part of its air defence system.”

The order was awarded after Saab’s upgrade proposal was put through a comprehensive evaluation process.

Saab surveillance business area senior vice-president and head Anders Carp said: “This order demonstrates the competiveness of the 9AIR C4I product. Our advanced air command and control system provides the Royal Thai Air Force with a vital part of its air defence system.”
