Crocon becomes a regional distributor for Saab

We are proud to announce that as of October 2015 Crocon d.o.o. is a regional distributor for Saab AB.

Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions from military defence to civil security. Its most important markets today are Europe, South Africa, Australia and the US. They offer solutions for coastal surveillance, port security, vessel management and search and rescue.

The IMO-compliant Saab Navigation systems have been the top choice for professional mariners for close to a decade. Saab offers the R5 generation of type approved GNSS and DGNSS Navigation solutions and Crocon is now authorized to distribute the following products:

  • Saab R5 shipborne AIS products
  • Saab R5 shipborne NAV products
  • R5 Secure AIS products

The SAAB R5 SOLID AIS is Saab's fifth generation transponder system, building on the success of the R4 AIS system, in operation on some 20,000 ships world-wide. The R5 SOLID includes an Inland AIS mode for European river going vessels.

The SAAB R5 SUPREME AIS system is designed for SOLAS vessels and advanced applications such as Secure and Warship AIS.

The AIS broadcasting standard is excellent for open information exchange between commercial ships at sea and between ships and shore stations. Open information sharing ig however not always suitable for qualified users like Naval forces, Coast Guard, Police etc., who may have a need to exchange non-public information between their own units and still be able to receive the open AIS information. Saab has therefore developed the Saab Secure W-AIS solution which satisfies these requirements. Since 2005 Saab has been the leading provider of encrypted AIS.

The R5 SUPREME NAV products are self-monitoring and extremely user friendly. The R5 SUPREME NAV system utilises the highly versatile R5 CDU and, with an option of R4 Sensors and antennas, it represents one of the most flexible navigation systems on the market.

We are extremely glad to be starting this new business relationship and expect a successful cooperation with our new partner in years to come!
