Defence and Security Company Saab offers to set up the world's most modern ecosystem and facility in India, to manufacture Gripen E for India and the global market. From this unique industrial base India will accelerate its ability to design, develop, manufacture, modify and enhance new fighters for the future.

The state-of-the-art facilities for India would include a dedicated Gripen Design Centre, a major production facility equipped with the latest manufacturing technologies and robotics systems, a radar and sensor centre, final assembly plus test and verification centres. The facilities to be set up would also deliver depot-level maintenance, repair and overhaul and design services. This fighter technology ecosystem would support the full spectrum of production capabilities for India, including parts manufacturing and sub-assembly.

"Saab is offering an industrial facility that will be the centre-of-gravity for the Made-in-India Gripen. It is an unrivalled offer that will set new standards in aeronautical engineering excellence for decades to come, should India procure Gripen," says Saab India Chairman Jan Widerström.

In close cooperation with Saab, engineers and technicians from Indian partner and supplier companies will live and work in Sweden and at global partners' sites, they will be trained at today's production facilities, to gain the knowledge and experience needed for transfer to Indian-made Gripens once India's own facilities are operational.
