NEW DELHI (BNS): Swedish defence company Saab and Indian shipbuilding company Pipavav have agreed to jointly form a group called the Combat System Engineering Group or "CSEG" in India.

The group will analyse the combat system design and architecture, and work closely with design group of Pipavav.

CSEG will undertake modelling and simulation and prepare system integration requirements for naval ships constructed by Pipavav, starting with the Naval Offshore Platform Vehicle programme.

The Indian Navy has a major shipbuilding and modernisation programme over next decade and there is a major effort in system engineering of frontline warships and submarines.

With Saab's worldwide experience, CSEG will fulfill this critical technology gap, the Swedish firm said in a statement.

"This is an excellent start to our naval commitment in India and shows Saab is a responsible, high technology partner for the Indian Navy and Indian defence industry. Over time I see large business opportunities," says Gunilla Fransson, the Head of Business Area Security and Defence Solutions, SDS.

"The Combat System Engineering Group model is a great possibility for Saab to work with Indian partners on world class Naval Combat Systems Engineering. The CSEG will support our partners and the Indian Navy. We are very proud to be pushing the boundaries," says Thomas Kloos, the Head of Command and Control Systems at SDS.

Saab is participating at Defexpo India 2012 showcasing the company's cutting-edge solutions across land, air, naval, civil security, commercial aeronautics and paramilitary domains.
