STOCKHOLM -- Saab has received an order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration, FMV, to provide Multi Tactical Data Links to the Swedish Navy. The total order value is SEK 148 million ($18.6 million).

The Navy platforms will be upgraded with data links such as L16 and L22.This enables closer co-operation and communication with other nations at sea during missions.

Saab 9LV Combat Management System (CMS) will be upgraded as part of the deliveries.

Link 16 is a military tactical data exchange network used by NATO and associated nations to allow military aircraft, ships and ground forces to exchange tactical information securely in near real-time. Link 22 is primarily maritime and complements Link 16.

Saab’s 9LV CMS is used as command and control center for many advanced surface vessels and submarines, providing naval forces with outstanding operational capabilities, supporting all mission types, from littorals to the open ocean.

BERN, Switzerland - Switzerland's Federal Council approved the Army Plan 2018 (AP18) outline for parliamentary consideration on February 14. The Plan outlines three priorities, including modernizing select Air Force systems, supplementing Army equipment, and developing training infrastructure. All told the appropriations committed towards meeting these goals within fiscal year 2018 amount to CHF2 billion ($2.15 billion). The breakdown involves CHF848 million for the armament program, CHF742 million for framework credits towards military equipment and CHF463 million for developing real estate for the Swiss Department of Public Protection and Sport (DDPS).

The Air Force seeks to modernize its secondary and primary radar systems and replace its radio communications systems. An upgrade of the AS532UL Cougar medium transport helicopter fleet that will extend their service lives out to 2030 is on tap, too.

The Army will receive new clothing and equipment, primarily ballistic body protection vests.

In regards to training, the DDPS plans to develop training infrastructure at three sites.

Finally, in order to achieve some savings with which to provide the Ministry with more financial flexibility, the Federal Council is requiring that a portion of the aging F-5 Tiger combat aircraft fleet be retired and sold off leaving just 26 units remaining.

BRUSSELS - Canada and Poland have opted to join a NATO Alliance initiative to develop follow-on solutions for aging maritime multirole platforms. The signing ceremony on February 15 included six other members: France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain and Turkey. Together the partners have sought define common requirements for future maritime aircraft capabilities as each faces deterioration and/or age in their respective maritime airborne fleets.

The initiative was launched on June 29, 2017, and now moves forward with eight partners seeking to finalize a common requirements document by the end of this year.

Poland is preparing to undertake the procurement of three maritime patrol aircraft between 2023 and 2030 under its "Rybitwa" (Tern) program. Knowing what its NATO allies in Europe are considering to meet the multiple roles - anti-submarine warfare, surveillance, reconnaissance, intelligence-collecting - required of new-generation maritime patrol aircraft may go far in determining how Warsaw plans to replace the Polish Navy's two PZL An-28s and 13 M-28B "Bryza" (Breeze) aircraft in the MPA role.
