SAAB Australia


Saab is Australian by design.

More than 30 years ago we transferred Combat Management Systems technologies into Australia for the ANZAC Class Frigates. In collaboration with the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), we have developed the technology – our own Australian know-how – making these Frigates the best of their type in the world.

The Australian government recently mandated our Combat Management System across the RAN fleet! And we won’t stop there. Making things happen – integrating technologies and building Australian capability is in our DNA.

We have transitioned into an entirely Australian company with more than 420 staff. We have developed the capability to entirely undertake design and development of complex software and hardware projects here and overseas. Saab is the Centre of Excellence in missile control, data links, Anti-Submarine Warfare, task force level operations and artificial intelligence functions.
