STOCKHOLM (BNS): Defence and security company Saab has received an order worth more than $16 million from the Indian Maritime Authority, DGLL, for supply of a system for coastal surveillance for the entire Indian coast.

The system that Directorate General of Lighthouses and Lightships (DGLL) ordered comprises sensors to be installed along the Indian coast and equipment for regional and national control centers.

Users of the system apart from DGLL will be the Indian navy, Coast Guard and DG Shipping, Saab said in a release.

Saab will implement the project which includes installation, commissioning, training and support together with their Indian partner, Elcome Marine Services.

The project will start immediately and will be completed within 18 months.

"Our systems for monitoring sea traffic have been installed on several of the coasts in the world and also along inland waterways in Europe and in China. With this order we are strengthening our position further," says Gunilla Fransson, head of Saab´s business area Security and Defense Solutions.

"It is equally satisfying that we now deepen and enhance our relation with India. This project along with the co-operations we already have makes India an important long term market for Saab."
