Saab in collaboration with its Kuwaiti partner Bader Sultan & Bros, delivered the world´s first integrated national CBRN (Chemical biological radiological nuclear) centre, which is now operational in Kuwait.
It is the first centre to cover a whole country with fixed and mobile CBRN sensors and units, whilst also providing a unique capability for simulated training, the press release states.
During 2015, Saab delivered the AWR (Automatic Warning and Reporting) system for the Kuwait National Guard. AWR is a flexible, modular and future-proof solution for the detection, identification, warning, monitoring and reporting of CBRN hazards. The system can be operated from fixed locations and carried by personnel or mounted on vehicles. It helps the operator to make fast and accurate decisions to limit the effects of a CBRN attack and it is a key part of the national CBRN centre.
“This CBRN centre in Kuwait strengthens our position as a supplier of advanced CBRN solutions. Our ability to take the prime contractor role for this ground-breaking CBRN solution is built on deep expertise and innovations in CBRN technology. It also derives from our detailed knowledge of C4I – Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence systems – as well as systems and platform integration”, says Torsten Öhman, acting Head of Business area Support and Services within Saab.
