Saab AB has entered into an agreement with leading Engineering and IT services organization Mahindra Satyam to establish the Saab India Technology Center (SITC). The aim is to increase development in India in terms of identifying concrete programs and technologies for the SITC. The center will provide a secure platform to facilitate development of aerospace and defense projects in the country. India presents a huge opportunity for Saab across their business areas of aeronautics, dynamics, electronic defense systems and security and defense solutions.

This dedicated center will be established at one of the Mahindra Satyam sites and will be an extended arm of Saab working on new product development and product sustenance engineering. While supporting the internal operational excellence and optimization initiatives within Saab, this center will also support offset obligations for all Saab products and services in India.

It is envisaged that Saab’s experience and technological prowess in providing services and solutions ranging from military defense to civil security combined with Mahindra Satyam’s proven global engineering practice will result in a highly efficient and technically mature development environment in India that can successfully address opportunities arising in these domains from emerging markets.

Engineering services is one of the key focus and growth areas within Mahindra Satyam, which currently runs some of the largest dedicated R&D centers for global majors across industry segments, including aerospace. The company is believed to have the right operational expertise and technical maturity to ensure this center delivers the set organizational targets.
