The Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) ordered nearly $17 million in Ceros 200 tracking systems from Saab AB, the company said on Wednesday.

The order includes use of the tracking system for the Danish Knud Rasmussen-class patrol vessels.


Ceros 200 is part of a fire control system tasked with detecting, monitoring, and combating threats to a ship. The system is precise and can distinguish between true and false threats, Saab said.

Under the order, Saab will also supply spare parts, documentation, and training to the Danish armed forces.

“Ceros 200 is based on radar and optronic technology, which makes the system very precise in all weather conditions. Ceros 200 is used on more than 200 ships around the world,” Gunilla Fransson, head of Saab’s Security and Defence Solutions business area, said in a statement.

“This is a further proof of the Saab products´ position in tough competition. I look forward to a continued successful and trusting cooperation in Denmark,” Ole Beckmann Andersen, country manager of Saab in Denmark, added.

Ceros 200 is set to be produced and delivered during 2016 and 2017.
