Agreement Cements DSTO and Saab Systems Alliance
Collaboration on maritime combat systems is the focus of a new strategic alliance signed today by the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) and Saab Systems.
The new bilateral alliance involves research associated with Saab’s 9LV Mk3 combat management system fitted to the Royal Australian Navy’s ANZAC ships.

“Saab’s particular skills in maritime combat systems is a perfect fit with the requirements of DSTO’s development of these systems,” Chief Defence Scientist Dr Alex Zelinsky said.
“Defence’s capability requirements are often too complex for any one research organisation to tackle on its own and collaborative approaches are required to find the right solutions,” he said.
Saab Systems Managing Director in Australia Mr Dean Rosenfield said partnerships based on shared knowledge helped to reduce risk and improve productivity.
“Saab has had a long relationship with DSTO and the new alliance continues to provide great opportunities for our staff to collaborate on research developing the next generation of maritime and land C4I systems,” Mr Rosenfield added.
