Saab TransponderTech Wins AIS Orders

Saab TransponderTech received orders from the Prefectura of Argentina to supply Automatic Information Systems (AIS) and other navigation systems, in a move to upgrade coastal surveillance capabilities for coast guard cutters.

The systems will be installed and commissioned by America Consulting Group S.A., Saab’s representative in Buenos Aires.
