The defence and security company Saab has signed a framework agreement with Italian Piaggio Aero Industries. Within the framework agreement Saab receives an order for the integration of surveillance systems in Piaggio Aero's new surveillance aircraft.

Within the framework agreement Saab receives an initial order for the delivery and integration of the surveillance system MPA Mission System. The order comprises two MPA aircraft and requires Saab to integrate a package of advanced surveillance equipment comprising of sensors, radar, infra-red cameras and a mission system.
