Saab and Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding have come together to compete for the project that will supply four Tamandaré Class Corvettes (CCT) for the Brazilian Navy.

Saab will provide, in case the partners’ proposal is chosen by the Brazilian Navy, the complete combat system including the world leading Saab 9LV Combat Management System (CMS). The Saab 9LV is the most modern and proven open architecture CMS on the market today, known for its flexibility and easy integration of third-party modules as well as high performance mission equipment. The 9LV is based on experience from more than 300 successfully delivered systems, used by navies from several countries.

Damen will be responsible for supplying the ship Sigma 10514, an off-the-shelf product that will be adapted according to the requirements of the client.

This project is proposing a large technology transfer programme, in addition to partnerships with local companies, benefiting the Brazilian defence industry. The companies are ready to prove to the Brazilian Navy that they are reliable as long-term partners, because this is part of the business culture of these companies.

“Saab is looking forward to the cooperation with Damen and the local partners for the CCT programme. We believe our proposal meets the requirements of the Brazilian Navy and offers the added value of industrial cooperation and transfer of technology that are intrinsic to Saab’s way of doing business, says Marianna Silva, Head of Saab do Brasil.

“We at Damen appreciate the increasingly important task of the Brazilian Navy to safeguard the maritime domain against its existent and future threats and challenges. We are looking forward to participate in a constructive way in this process”, says Mr. Richard Keulen, Director Naval Sales of Damen. “We also are confident that our product will integrate perfectly with those of Saab”.

Saab, Damen, and partners will be at RIDEX (Rio International Defence Exhibition), in Rio de Janeiro, from June 27 to 29, at Pier Mauá, in a shared stand located on D24 area.
