Saab’s strong presence at IMDEX 2019 in Singapore, 14-16 May, will underline its long-standing commitment to the Republic of Singapore and to support its growing business across the entire region, the company stated on 6 May.
“Saab is utterly unique in the naval domain [….] We are the only company with the in-house skills to deliver advanced combat vessels and submarines plus all of the weapons, sensors, fire control and C2 [command and control] systems that complete the maritime battlespace. Saab also develops, supplies and sustains all the essential enabling systems on land and in the air that ensure a full-spectrum naval defence and security capability,” observed Head of Saab Asia Pacific, Dean Rosenfield. “Singapore is our home in Asia Pacific and we have a long and successful relationship with our customers here. We are also active in almost every other nation across the region as a key component of their naval operations. IMDEX is an important forum for us to demonstrate how we at Saab get close to our customers, support them and stand alongside them for the long term.”
Products and solutions from the company’s portfolio on show at IMDEX will include:
