SAAB selects Rockwell Collins' avionics for Gripen Demonstrator program

Rockwell Collins has been selected by SAAB to supply a suite of avionics for the new Gripen Demonstrator program. 

"Our expanded role for the Gripen Demonstrator program reflects a high degree of customer satisfaction for our performance on the JAS-39, as well as our reputation for providing world-class cockpit solutions for fighter aircraft," stated Bernard Loth, vice president and general manager of Rockwell Collins International Operations. "We look forward to delivering cockpit systems that significantly complement and enhance Gripen's evolving technology insertion program."

Rockwell Collins currently provides its Head up Display System (HUD), ARN-147 Very High Frequency (VHF) Omni Ranging/Instrument Landing System (VOR/ILS) receiver, and ARN-153 Tactical Air Navigation system (TACAN) to the Gripen. On the new Gripen Demonstrator program, Rockwell Collins has significantly increased its content to include Flight Management Computers that feature data transfer and switching, video processing capabilities, and three advanced six-inch by eight-inch Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Display (AMLCD) color Head Down Displays (HDD).

This expansion in content on the demonstrator program for the premiere Swedish fighter reflects Rockwell Collins' growing presence in the European market. The work will continue over a three-year period at Rockwell Collins' facilities in the U.S. and Europe, and at SAAB's headquarters located in Linköping, Sweden.
