Defense and security company Saab will on August 19, together with the Danish Defence Minister, Mr. Peter Christensen, inaugurate the company’s new office in Sønderborg, Denmark. Saab is growing in Denmark and acts as a hub for high technology communication systems.
Saab in Denmark is going from being a product supplier to a solution provider. Providing full system integration of highly advanced communication systems (TactiCall) for both the civil and military domains - both domestically and internationally. Systems that increase flexibility and manoeuvrability for the customer to pursue its core tasks, such as for defence forces to keep people and society safe or for actors in the oil and gas industry to have a safe work environment.
“We want to expand our overall presence in Denmark and to provide Saab’s innovative and high-technological systems and solutions within defence and security to the Danish market”, says Heino Lundgren, CEO of Saab in Denmark and head of Saab business unit Communication Solutions within business area Support and Services.
Over the past four years Saab Denmark has more than doubled its turnover and recruited more than 30 new employees – increasing staffing with more than one third in total. Saab’s plan is to continue to grow in Denmark going forward.
“Sønderborg is one of the major engineering hot spots in Denmark. Several of Denmark’s leading technology companies have their headquarters in the area, and this helps attracting the right talent and skills, which will build the foundation for our growth. To Saab, Sønderborg is the ideal location to build for the future, which we firmly believe we have done here at our new offices,” says Heino Lundgren.

Saab in Denmark is the company's hub in terms of military communication systems. The expertise within the area is extensive and goes many years back. The communication technology Saab is offering is called TactiCall and is a very robust system for both military and civil use. One of the advantage is that the system can connect all kinds of different communication systems a customer might have, in one interface. Here are some highlights of business that Saab in Denmark are involved in:
NATO Logistic Support Vessel
Together with DSME, Saab in Denmark is delivering a secure integrated naval communication system to a logistic support vessel operating under NATO command. With VoIP, Voice over IP, the system manages all internal and extern communication on-board the vessel. TactiCall is the first and only VoIP system to be tested according to the EAL 5, Evaluation Assurance Level of IT security, during active duty in a NATO fleet.
Saab is also designing and integrating healthcare capabilities to this vessel.
New frigate to the Royal Thai Navy
Delivery of integrating a complete communications solution that manages all internal and external communication in a frigate that the Korean shipyard DSME, Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering, is delivering to the Royal Thai Navy in 2018.
The solution, which is a completely secure VoIP communications solution (TactiCall ICS), gives the crew complete control and fast access to all communication. The solution will be integrated in the battle management system as well as installed separately in different locations of the entire ship.
TactiCall VoIP is built to facilitate the chain of command in military communication at sea that require red and black separation, as well as security accreditation of the overall solution.
Communication system for submarines
The world’s most advanced submarine, Saab’s A26, will be equipped with TactiCall. The system ensures access to all communication systems on board, both voice and data via the same interface. The result is increased speed, better workflow and improved communication in a totally secure environment.
An important feature is the ability to pre-package communication and test the entire communication chain from the terminal to the antenna before the retractable antenna folds out above the water to complete the transfer. This means that the exposure when transmitting communication is reduced to a minimum.
When installed on the A26, the system is made available on a submarine for the first time in world.
