The Research and Technology (R&T) Programme of the Swedish Armed Forces has the overall objective to:
– Support the continued realization of a flexible and accessible operational defence
– Secure freedom of action for future decisions
– Be utilized in the Armed Forces operations
The programme is divided into 13 different R&T areas. Aeronautics related activities are imbedded in at least five of these areas – with the main area for aeronautics called “Aeronautics with Electronics & Construction”. These R&T activities are intended to be more long term but supplementary to the Gripen aircraft development programme.
