STOCKHOLM -- Saab has received a follow-on order from Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) for its Integrated Defensive Aids Suite (IDAS-2) self-protection system for the Indian Army's Dhruv helicopter. The order amounts to approximately SEK350 million.

Production of the IDAS-2 system is to take place at Saab's facility in Centurion, South Africa. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2019.

"This follow-on order confirms our successful partnership with HAL, and further establishes Saab as a local partner to the Indian industry," said Anders Carp, head of Saab's Surveillance business area.

The IDAS is designed to provide platform self-protection for rotary-wing and fixed-wing aircraft in sophisticated, diverse, and dense threat environments. It is in operational use in many countries on helicopters, commercial transports, and fighters.

"The system has a long and successful history with proven capability on many airborne platforms. This order strengthens our position as a supplier of high-tech systems to the Indian armed forces," said Trevor Raman, head of Saab Grintek Defence.
