Saab rolls out new naval radar in U S market

Line Spacing+- AFont Size+- Print This Article

STOCKHOLM (BNS): Defence and Security Company Saab is showcasing its Sea Giraffe 1X naval radar for the first time at the Maritime Security East Conference in Norfolk, Virginia.

According to Saab, the Sea Giraffe 1X, which offers simultaneous surface and air surveillance capabilities is a growing need in the US maritime security sector.

Sea Giraffe 1X is a 3D, active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar. The entire system weighs less than 650 pounds in total, making it suitable for smaller patrol ships.

With no forced cooling requirements and a minimal number of line-replaceable units (LRUs), it requires little power or upkeep. All maintenance, including LRU repair, can be performed by low-level trained engineers, Saab said.

To combat the growing UAV threat, Sea Giraffe 1X features Saab's Enhanced Low, Slow and Small (ELSS) surveillance function.

This feature allows the radar system to detect and classify small, low-flying, slow-moving air targets, while concurrently conducting its full suite of other air and surface reconnaissance duties.

"Sea Giraffe 1X enhances situational awareness for maritime patrol, surface combat and counter-UAV operations," said Gene Bojarski, Business Development Manager of Naval Programmes.
