Saab returns to Langkawi for LIMA 2017

Defence and security company Saab will exhibit at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace exhibition (LIMA 2017), in Langkawi, Malaysia, from 21 to 25 March.

The trade show is held at the Mahsuri International Exhibition Centre, Langkawi (Aerospace site) and Resorts World, Langkawi (Maritime site), Malaysia.

LIMA is a major international meeting place for the aerospace, defence and maritime sectors in Malaysia and the wider Asia Pacific region. This year, Saab will be present at both the Aerospace and Maritime exhibition sites to demonstrate why we are the best partner for Malaysia’s defence and security.

“Saab has a strong track record in Malaysia and we have been doing business here since the 1970s. We see great potential to support the continuing modernisation of Malaysia’s armed forces and state agencies, especially in the air and maritime domains. We live in a fast-changing region where operational effect and cost efficiency are the two key drivers for all future operations. Saab is the master of smart, efficient design and at LIMA we will show our customers how we are best placed to meet their capability needs,” says Thomas Lindén, Head of Saab Malaysia.

At LIMA 2017 Saab will exhibit products and solutions from our complete product portfolio across the air and maritime domains. This will include:

+ Gripen fighter, the world’s most advanced multi-role combat aircraft.

“Tested, proven, in production and available now, Gripen is the answer to Malaysia’s pressing need for effective, affordable 21st Century airpower.”

+ GlobalEye, Saab’s revolutionary multi-role airborne surveillance system. With its all-new Erieye ER radar, advanced C4I and multi-mission capabilities, GlobalEye uniquely combines the roles of airborne early warning and control, maritime patrol and ground surveillance all in a single platform.

+ Swordfish maritime patrol aircraft (MPA). With Swordfish Saab has redefined the concept of high-end, cost-effective MPA operations. Swordfish delivers the full range of operational capabilities needed for tactical and strategic ISR with the complete ability to conduct all ASW and ASuW missions on a long-range, high-performance but affordable platform.

+ Naval combat systems. Saab can deliver the full spectrum of naval warfare capabilities, from missiles to sensors, all integrated with advanced combat management systems for every class of vessel.

“Saab is ready to provide a range of different combat systems solutions for all of Malaysia’s future naval programmes.”
