Diehl Defence gets IRIS-T SLS order from Sweden

The Swedish Defence Material Administration signed a contract with Diehl Defence to deliver IRIS-T SLS surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems for the country´s armed forces.

Delivery of the first IRIS-T SLS systems is scheduled to commence in 2016. As partner of the European missile program, Sweden has already introduced the IRIS-T air-to-air missile for its Gripen fighter aircraft.

The new units comprising the IRIS-T missile, missile launching station and fire control system are to improve the national air defence by protection against air attacks from a large variety of threats including missiles, helicopters and aircraft.

Following deployment, the mobile system allows fully automatic operation 24 hours a day. The Swedish Army will operate the SAM fire units, together with a new Command and Control System as well as modernized sensors from Saab.
