Saab launches five new radars for to­tal air do­main aware­ness

SP's MAI - - MILITARY -

De­fence and se­cu­rity com­pany Saab ex­tends its sur­face radar port­fo­lio, with the in­tro­duc­tion of five all-new com­ple­men­tary Gi­raffe radars for land and sea. This strength­ens the cur­rent prod­uct of­fer­ing but also takes the Gi­raffe firmly into the lon­grange air sur­veil­lance do­main and puts an en­tirely new ca­pa­bil­ity onto the mar­ket.

Saab’s com­bat-proven and highly-re­garded sur­face radar port­fo­lio, in­clud­ing the renowned Gi­raffe AMB and Arthur radars, has been im­proved and ex­panded through the ad­di­tion of new tech­nolo­gies and de­signs. Along­side its ex­ist­ing prod­ucts, Saab is now pro­duc­ing new ac­tive elec­tron­i­cally scanned ar­ray (AESA) radar vari­ants for land and sea.

These radars use leap-ahead de­sign tech­niques that put them in a class of their own in terms of per­for­mance and ca­pa­bil­ity. For the first time Saab’s Gi­raffe radars also of­fer a so­lu­tion for long-range air sur­veil­lance. There is now a Gi­raffe op­tion for ev­ery air sur­veil­lance and air de­fence ap­pli­ca­tion, on land and at sea.

Saab has more than 30 years of AESA de­sign ex­pe­ri­ence. This depth of ex­pe­ri­ence – and Saab’s un­der­stand­ing of radar cost, per­for­mance, re­li­a­bil­ity and pack­ag­ing is­sues – re­sults in a unique tech­nol­ogy so­lu­tion. Saab’s ad­vanced sur­face-based radars are highly-ef­fec­tive against mul­ti­ple ‘dif­fi­cult’ air tar­gets in the most dense and chal­leng­ing op­er­a­tional en­vi­ron­ments.

Saab is one of the world’s leading radar sup­pli­ers with 60 years of ex­pe­ri­ence and more than 3,000 radar sys­tems in oper­a­tion in 30 coun­tries.
