ACAB selected as a preferred supplier of composite

ACAB is one of the leading European suppliers of advanced composite components for military applications, among other things. ACAB supplies composite launch tubes and missiles components through out Saab’s product range. Furthermore, ACAB has been supporting Saab with radome technology since the 1950ies and is the supplier of the nose radomes from the Saab 32 Lansen to the latest generation JAS 39 Gripen.

Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions from military defence to civil security. With operations on every continent, Saab continuously develops, adapts and improves new technology to meet customers’ changing needs.
 
The superior strength-to-weight ratio of composites has made them the materials of choice in many of Saab’s military products. These systems are becoming lighter and lighter by the greater use of composites.
 
The radome (radar dome) is the streamlined structural part in the nose of the aircraft which protects the radar antenna from wind and weather. It is carefully designed to withstand the mechanical loads without compromising the radar performance.
 
”We are very glad for this appointment as it further consolidates our long term partnership with Saab”, says Torgny Stenholm, President of ACAB.
 
”It is crucial for Saab to have a network of preferred suppliers and we have identified ACAB as one of these”, concludes Adam Franz, Category Account Manager at Saab.
