PANAJI (PTI): Sweden-headquartered Saab and Tata Power SED have collaborated to develop and manufacture self-protection systems for land-based platforms in India during the ongoing Defence Expo in Goa.

The systems are meant for the Indian market and for export to Saab's global market, the two companies issued a joint statement.

"The process of transfer of technology for production of initial orders for Saab's global customers has already commenced at Tata Power SED's facility in Bangalore.

"Tata Power SED will eventually manufacture a large part of the system in India and also do final assembly," the statement said.

"Tata power SED's strengths in Defence Electronics manufacturing are a perfect complement to Saab's expertise in electronic warfare systems, sensors and self protection systems for all domains," CMD of Saab India Technologies said Jan Widerstrom said.

CEO of Tata Power SED Rahul Chaudhry said, the company is excited to be a part of this synergetic collaboration that has already been kicked off.

"Given the long-term potential for self protection systems for combat vehicles, both in India and abroad, we see this collaboration with Saab as an important milestone in boosting India's capabilities in building defence systems," he said.
