Saab and Samtel in cooperation


Saab and Samtel Display Systems have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly develop, manufacture and market the RIGS Head-Up Display in India.

Samtel Display Systems (SDS), India’s leading private sector aerospace company, is already in advanced stages of developing Head Up Displays for fighter aircraft. Subsequent to this MoU, SDS will now also be involved in the development of RIGS HUD together with Saab. SDS and Saab will jointly market RIGS in India to potential Indian customers for the Indian commercial and military airborne market.

“Our current goal with reference to this MoU is to help Saab serve the Indian market in the Head-Up Displays segment. But we are hopeful that through our focus on quality along with cost effectiveness this collaboration will extend to other international markets as well over the next few years,” says Mr. Puneet Kaura, Executive Director, SDS, about the collaboration.
Endless display possibilities

RIGS is a new-generation advanced lightweight Head Up Display (HUD) providing pilots with information linked to flight and navigation as well as sighting, with aiming point and target reticule. It gives all-weather capability, ideal for flying and landing helicopters in challenging conditions, by presenting landing information and images from enhanced vision sensors enabling pilots to see through darkness, smog, smoke and various levels of snow, rain and fog.

RIGS consist of one or two display units, to serve one or two crew members in cockpit, and an electronics unit. The open system architecture allows customers to tailor applications to their specific needs and to upgrade the system capabilities.

Tapping on the vast experience in the development of HUD and display systems RIGS opens up endless display possibilities for users on new capabilities, increased safety and cost savings.
