Saab and its Kuwaiti partner have delivered the world's first integrated national center for defense against weapons of mass destruction to Kuwait.

Saab said the company built the center through a partnership between Bader Sultan & Bros of Kuwait and the Kuwait National Guard. The center will also provide simulated defense training, which will support the national guard's automatic warning and reporting system -- another Saab product.
That system is a flexible method for the detection, identification, warning, monitoring and reporting of CBRN hazards and is part of the CBRN center's operations.
