Swedish defence major, Saab has signed a contract with NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) in Luxembourg for upgrading three SINDRE I air surveillance radars in Norway.
Deliveries will take place between 2017 and 2020, with work undertaken by Saab Technologies Norway, in Halden, Norway and Saab Defense and Security USA, in Syracuse, New York, USA.

Saab’s upgrade will include replacing obsolete hardware as well as upgrading software.
