DIMDEX 2014: Saab to unveil compact 3D radar

27 March 2014

Defence technology group Saab will lift the covers in mid-2014 on a new compact 3D radar designed to fill the gap between high-end 2D radars such as Terma's Scanter series and its own Giraffe AMB G-band 3D radar system, the company hinted at DIMDEX 2014 in Doha.

The new Sea Giraffe 1X radar is based on a scaled down AMB and is designed to deliver a compact, lightweight 3D system suitable for smaller patrol boats and fast-attack craft. Saab hopes it will appeal to operators in the Gulf region, where fast patrol boats continue to be in high demand and a number of existing fleets are in need of sensor upgrades.
