Royal Thai air force taps Saab to upgrade command and control system

STOCKHOLM, Sweden. Royal Thai air force officials tapped Saab to upgrade Thailand’s national air command and control system, which is based on Saab’s 9AIR C4I.

Under contract, Saab will upgrade and further enhance the Royal Thai air force’s Air System (ACCS) which is based on Saab’s 9AIR C4I product and has been in operation with the Royal Thai air force since 2010. The system is a core part of Thailand’s network centric air defense capability which also includes Saab’s Gripen fighter, Erieye airborne early warning system and tactical data links.

The ACCS upgrade combines new hardware and software that will sustain, enhance and expand the system’s nationwide capabilities for future operations. The work will take place at Saab in Järfälla, Sweden and the contract will run until 2020. 9AIR C4I is Saab’s tactical air operations command and control system. It provides situational awareness and complete control of weapons, sensors and communications.
