Sweden : SAAB OF SWEDEN extends Giraffe family of SURFACE RADARS

May 13, 2014

Saab of Sweden has extended the Giraffe family of surface radars, with the addition of five active electronically-scanned array variants.

Giraffe 1X and Sea Giraffe 1X are short-range radars with an X-band AESA and offer a set of 3D functions; Giraffe 4A and Sea Giraffe 4A are medium- to long-range radars which marry air surveillance, air defense, sense and warn and weapon-locating capabilities in an S-band AESA-based unit.

The long-range Giraffe S-band AESA radar is the 8A that has an anti-ballistic missile capability.

According to Micael Johansson, head of Saab's Electronic Defense Systems business area,"I'm proud to present this important milestone in our surface radar development. Our portfolio now caters for all advanced radar requirements, from very short- to long-range air defense, but also surveillance, and weapons location with true multi-role functionality."

Saab has also raised other radar products. The C-band Giraffe AMB and Sea Giraffe AMB for short- to medium-range surveillance and command and control have been given increased range. Arthur, a C-band medium-range weapons-locating system that detects and locates enemy fire, has also been developed.
