New Delhi (BNS): Naval solutions companies, 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 the complete combat system including the world leading Saab 9LV Combat Management System (CMS) if the proposal is chosen by the Brazilian Navy. The Saab 9LV is known for its flexibility and easy integration of third-party modules as well as high performance mission equipment.

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, a Saab statement said.

The companies are proposing a large technology transfer programme, in addition to partnerships with local companies, benefiting the Brazilian defence industry.


“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, said 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.
