Saab And Atech Partner In Brazilian Gripen Programme

Defence and security company Saab has selected Atech Negocios em Technologia S/A as partner in the Brazilian Gripen NG programme. The partnership covers simulators, training systems and ground support systems.

The agreement with Atech is part of Saab’s commitment to deliver industrial co-operation as part of the Brazilian Gripen NG programme, which was signed between Saab and the Brazilian Federal Government (Ministry of Defense through the Aeronautics Command, COMAER) in October 2014. Atech will undertake extensive on-the-job-training and work share in the Brazilian Gripen NG programme. During the month of May, a team of Atech engineers will relocate to Sweden to conduct initial training. The acquired skills and competence will subsequently be transferred to Brazil.
