Saab has signed a significant co-operation agreement with Terma, valued to more than 10 Billion Danish Krones ($1,9 Billion), part of a comprehensive industrial collaboration with Danish industry, covering cooperation in aviation, space, defense and civil security. This agreement is part of an incentive package Saab is offering Denmark, promoting the possible selection of the Swedish Gripen fighter as next generation fighter for the Royal Danish Air Force.

“We are convinced that our offer is the best alternative for Denmark. Saab offers Danish industry a strong and long term profitable industrial co-operation, exceeding the requirement of 100 percent of the order value of a Gripen deal”, says Saab’s CEO Åke Svensson. “The industrial collaboration carries with it an historic opportunity for broader Scandinavian co-operation.”
In the next few years Denmark will be renewing its aircraft fleet and the deal could cover as many as 48 fighter aircraft. Saab is offering the Gripen Next Generation, currently under development. This aircraft will be fully NATO compatible. Denmark is also considering the F-35 Lightning II for this role. A similar model is also competing with Lockheed martin's JSF on a potential order from Norway. Saab expects it will be available for delivery from 2016 or earlier, pending Denmark requirements. Gripen is in service with the Swedish, Hungarian and Czech Republic Air Forces and has also been ordered by the South African Air Force. The UK Empire Test Pilots´ School (ETPS) is operating Gripen as its advanced fast jet platform for test pilots worldwide.
