Saab launches five new radars for total air domain awareness
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.
