More than 60 ARTHUR units have been sold and their availability is well proven from thousands of hours’ operation. The first ARTHUR order from South Korea came in 2007.

The system is developed by Saab in Gothenburg, Sweden. The main part of the production for this program will be done at LIG Nex1 under a localisation agreement between Saab and LIG.
