The Boeing-Saab team is producing an advanced trainer for the U.S. Air Force, with Saab providing the aft section, which is currently manufactured in Sweden before being shipped to the U.S.
|01/10/2021||Press Release:||Saab delivers for the T-7A flight test program|
Under the multi-year contract, FE-SIL will deliver the wiring systems for the aft fuselage of the Boeing-Saab T-7A jet that will train fighter and bomber pilots. The first EWIS ship-set is scheduled for delivery in 2022.
Saab's airframe section will complete the test aircraft for the EMD's flight test program. Including hydraulics, fuel and secondary power, it forms the centre structure from behind the cockpit to the end of the aircraft.
Airborne transceivers from the SOVERON radio family provide excellent RF characteristics suitable for applications in harsh military environments, making the software-defined radio ideal for Boeing's T-7A.
