Saab, the Swedish aerospace and defense company, has secured a contract with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) to conduct conceptual studies for the country’s future fighter aircraft. This project, spanning 2024-2025, marks a significant step towards ensuring Sweden’s air superiority in the coming decades.

The program will explore cutting-edge technologies crucial for future air combat. Artificial intelligence, networked warfare integration, unmanned aerial vehicles, advanced sensors, and stealth capabilities are all on the agenda. This research will culminate in the development of a sixth-generation fighter jet designed to replace current models like the Gripen and the Eurofighter by 2035.

This project comes amidst a broader European effort. Sweden, through Saab and GKN Aerospace Sweden, is already part of Team Tempest, a collaborative initiative alongside Italy and the United Kingdom. Team Tempest aims to spearhead the development of next-generation air combat technologies.

Saab’s experience developing the Gripen E and GlobalEye aircraft positions them well to lead this crucial project. The upcoming conceptual studies will pave the way for a future Swedish fighter jet that leverages the latest advancements in aerial warfare.
