Knowit receives order from SaabPublished 11 Oct 2013
Knowit has received an order valued at more than SEK 20 million from Saab, regarding communication solutions for upgrading the Swedish air defense.
The order includes development of a new DLP Lv, Data Link Processor, for data communication between different units within anti-aircraft defense, and an interface standard (GYL LvM), for enabling testing and simulation of anti-aircraft defense units, integration and training.
– This order strengthens our position as a supplier of communication systems both in Sweden and internationally. Development of the new Swedish anti-aircraft defense system means, among other things, that command units can be coordinated with Nato’s tactical communication link (Link 16), says Mats Thorstenson, CEO of Knowit Dataunit.
The work will mainly be carried out in Stockholm, but also in Uppsala, and final delivery will be made in the spring of 2015.
