Saab delivers integrated CBRN centre to Kuwait


Saab, along with its Kuwaiti partner Bader Sultan & Bros, has delivered the world´s first integrated national chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) centre to Kuwait.

The CBRN centre is now operational and covers the whole country with fixed and mobile CBRN sensors and units, Saab stated.

Saab Support and Services Business area acting head Torsten Öhman said: “This CBRN centre in Kuwait strengthens our position as a supplier of advanced CBRN solutions. Our ability to take the prime contractor role for this ground-breaking CBRN solution is built on deep expertise and innovations in CBRN technology.

“It also derives from our detailed knowledge of C4I – Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence systems – as well as systems and platform integration.”

Saab stated that it built the CBRN centre in partnership with Bader Sultan & Bros and the Kuwait National Guard.

"This CBRN centre in Kuwait strengthens our position as a supplier of advanced CBRN solutions."

The centre has been designed to provide simulated training capability, according to Saab.

The Kuwait National Guard has received automatic warning and reporting (AWR) system from Saab in 2015, which is a key part of the national CBRN centre.

The AWR system is capable of detecting, identifying, warning, monitoring and reporting CBRN hazards. It can be operated from fixed locations and carried by personnel or mounted on vehicles.

Using the system, operators will be able to make fast and accurate decisions to limit the effects of a CBRN attack.
