Keeping you safe!


Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions from military defence to civil security. With operations on every continent, Saab continuously develops, adapts and improves new technology to meet customers’ changing needs.

Saab Grintek Defence has been involved with the Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon (KAEM) through its C2TS Land and Maritime unit since 2009. This involvement has grown into a true partnership.

During the 7 days of the event, Saab Grintek Defence plays a key role in providing “global” visibility and situational awareness of participants and support crew. As in any defence situation, trusted in-time information is just as vital for an extreme marathon event in ensuring effective operational decision-making and participants’ safety. While the company’s support is highly valuable for KAEM, the event offers the perfect location for testing and optimising new innovations and product solutions. Saab Grintek Defence gets the opportunity to assess and improve their world-class command and control capability in a non-combatant setting.

Associated with KAEM, Saab Grintek Defence shares the values of TRUST, EXPERTISE, DETERMINATION and DRIVE. Over a period of 7 days in the Kalahari Desert where emotions are heightened in overcoming challenges and achieving personal goals, Saab Grintek Defence makes a personal brand connection with participants from all over the world.

Partnering with Saab Grintek Defence, KAEM strives to help fulfil the company’s vision of keeping people safe and secure.
