Explanation:
With the Gripen, Saab - as the sole company - has a fourth-generation fighter aircraft. (or "...has a fighter aircraft that has been in production for four generations".)

Odd sentence that. "als einziges Unternehmen" seems incomplete. Sole company to do what? Gripen seems to be the name of the aircraft. "Verfügen über etwas" means to have, possess, dispose of (see link below)
