Swedish-based defense group Saab said it has finished developing a system to protect aircraft from surface-to-air missiles and plans to supply production versions of the system as part of a bid to win a U.S. Department of Homeland Security contract. Saab is part of a consortium that is one of three groups competing for the contract. The winner could be announced as early as this month.
