Saab to Upgrade Thailand’s Air Command and
Saab has received an order from the Royal Thai
Air Force to upgrade Thailand’s Air Command and
Control System (ACCS).
The system is based on Saab’s 9AIR C4I product
and has been in operation with the Royal Thai Air Force since
The ACCS is a core part of Thailand’s network centric air
defence capability which also includes Saab’s Gripen fighter,
Erieye airborne early warning system and tactical data links.
“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,” said Anders Carp, Senior Vice President and Head
of Saab’s Business Area Surveillance.
The ACCS upgrade combines
new hardware and software that will sustain, enhance and expand
the system’s nationwide capabilities for future operations. The
work will take place at Saab in Järfälla, Sweden and the contract
will run until 2020.
