Saab is to provide product support and maintenance services for the Swedish navy's underwater weapon systems for the next two years.

The contract with the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration, or FMV, is worth more than $26 million. Saab said the award comes under terms of the Letter of Intent to support the Swedish armed forces' underwater capabilities for the period of 2015 to 2024.

Saab said it has unique expertise in developing underwater systems for shallow waters and for the specific environment of the Baltic Sea, including customized propulsion systems, weapon systems, communication systems, homing systems and others.
