Saab has received an order from the Swedish armament procurement agency, the Försvarets MaterielVerk (FMV) for a helmet mounted display system, called Targo. The new system will be used for the Swedish Air Force’s Gripen E fighter aircraft. The order value is approximately SEK 119 million. Deliveries will take place between 2022 and 2026.

The Targo system will be manufactured and supplied by AEL Sistemas, a Brazilian operation of Elbit Systems. The Targo 5 was selected for the Brazilian Air Force F39 Gripen fighters.

Targo was designed to locate, track, identify and engage air and ground targets. A helmet mounted visor displays flight information such as altitude and air speed, as well as cueing targets and supplying supporting tracking data to the pilot.
