Saab Signs Counter-IED Training Contract with British Army
Saab has signed a two year extension for the Collective Counter- Improvised Explosive Device Trainer (CCT) managed service from the UK Ministry of Defence. The order amounts to £11.1 million (app. 125 million kronor).
This extension will ensure that UK military personnel continue
to receive C-IED live training capabilities in the UK and abroad. By closely simulating IED events in training, individuals and groups can better react and detect the IED. This extension clearly demonstrates the confidence the UK MoD has in Saab in supporting this life saving training and evaluation.
Since November 2010 Saab has supported C-IED training for all UK personnel deploying on operations in Afghanistan. In addition Saab provides instrumented live simulation for UK MoD training exercises in Kenya, Canada and the UK mainland.

With the new generation MagShoe models available, we will now have MagShoes installed at all gates of the airport and the new terminal.”
Arkia & Israir to Ditch ATR Aircraft Due to Incompatibility with C-MUSIC
The Israeli Civil Aviation Authority has decided that all Israeli aircraft must be equipped with C-MUSIC anti-missile technology. The laser- based solution, designed and developed by Elbit Systems, is already being rolled-out, with a number of aircraft being fitted with the system this spring and summer. El Al Israel Airlines is actually performing the installations, both on its own fleet and on aircraft belonging to Arkia and Israir. However, the solution cannot be fitted to ATR aircraft. As a result both Arkia and Israir are being forced to sell such models, which form a large part of their fleets and are used as the aircraft-of-choice on the Tel Aviv-Eilat domestic route.
