NOW Atlantic: Smart thinking for a changing world
Saab has announced the Canadian team that is on its bid to build a future fighter jet for Canada.
The aerospace companies include IMP Aerospace & Defence, CAE, Peraton Canada and GE Aviation, Saab announced Monday.
Saab is offering Gripen E, with the support of the Swedish government, for Canada’s future fighter requirement of 88 new aircraft. Those aircraft will replace the Royal Canadian Air Force’s existing CF-18 Hornet fighter fleet. The Canadian Request for Proposal requires companies to deliver high-quality industrial and technological benefits.
IMP Aerospace & Defence will contribute with in-country production and in-service support for the life of a Canadian Gripen fleet, the firm noted. CAE will provide training and mission systems solutions, while Peraton Canada will provide avionic and test equipment component maintenance, repair and overhaul, and material management.
GE Aviation will provide and sustain the fighter’s engines in Canada, Saab added.
