Saab receives Swedish defense order for GaN-based radar

Sweden-based defence and security firm Saab AB has received an order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) to develop and maintain the Armed Forces’ artillery- and weapon-locating capability. The order includes Saab’s Giraffe 4A multi-function radar and life extension of the artillery-locating system Arthur.

Giraffe 4A is a multi-function radar with a range of capabilities, including a gallium nitride (GaN)-based digital multi-channel system featuring active electronically scanned array (AESA) technology that can be used for air surveillance and air defence as well as warning and artillery locating tasks.

Deliveries of the ground-based multi-function system Giraffe 4A and the life extension of Arthur will create conditions for the Armed Forces’ long-range surveillance capability in the long term and give the defence new possibilities for handling existing and future threats. The work will take place at Saab in Gothenburg, with deliveries from 2019.

“Our ground-based radar Giraffe 4A strengthens our customers’ capability to detect incoming threats including tactical ballistic missiles,” says Anders Carp, head of Saab’s business area Surveillance. “The system gives our customers a world-class multi-function capability that helps to protect their interests.”
