Saab: 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 long-range 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.

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