Saab has secured an order from Norwegian-based Vard Group A/S for the delivery of the 9LV Fire Control System (FCS) to support the Norwegian Coast Guard’s new Jan Mayen class vessels. 

Saab has secured an order from Norwegian-based Vard Group A/S for the delivery of the 9LV Fire Control System (FCS) to support the Norwegian Coast Guard’s new Jan Mayen class vessels. 

The 9LV FCS is used to detect, monitor and combat threats with unprecedented accuracy. Saab’s 9LV naval combat system solutions offer complete Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I) for every type of naval platform, ranging from combat boats and patrol boats, to frigates and aircraft carriers, as well as submarines and vessels for anti-piracy, security and surveillance.

Saab’s 9LV solutions provide naval forces with outstanding operational capabilities, supporting all mission types, from littorals to the open ocean.

Anders Carp, head of Saab’s business area surveillance welcomed the announcement, saying, “We are proud to continue supporting the Norwegian Coast Guard’s fire control capabilities with 9LV FCS, which meets Norway’s requirements for high precision, availability and quality.”

The 9LV FCS provides rapid, reliable defence against any threat in any environment, including advanced sea-skimming missiles and asymmetric surface threats, across three different scaleable packages for patrol vessels, offshore patrol vessels and corvettes and frigates and destroyers. 

9LV contributes to reducing operator workload by automating a number of typically complex tasks, including: 

  • Patrol and response, including interdiction, maritime patrol and anti-piracy
  • Surface contact detection, identification and interception
  • Surface warfare 
  • Border control and securing of economic interests 
  • Defence against unconventional attacks 
  • Threat evaluation: finding and prioritising threats, using all known threat characteristics 

Vard Group is building the Jan Mayen class vessels with the first delivery planned for 2022. Saab will undertake the work in Järfälla, Sweden.

One of the core components of the 9LV FCS, Ceros 200, is based on radar and optronic technology, which gives the system very high precision in all weather conditions. It is used on more than 200 ships around the world, including the Royal Australian Navy’s Anzac-class frigates and Canberra-class Landing Helicopter Docks.
