Saab has received an additional order from the United States Navy to supply Sea Giraffe AMB Multi Mode Radar (MMR) for the US Coast Guard’s newest class of ship, the Offshore Patrol Cutter (OPC).
The MMR system is three dimensional, electronically scanned phased array radar providing high-radiated power, selectable waveforms, and modern signal processing. Saab received the initial order for the MMR for the Offshore Patrol Cutter from the US Navy in 2017, the company said in a statement Thursday.
“Variants of the Sea Giraffe AMB are currently included in four separate US military and homeland security programs,” says Anders Carp, Senior Vice President and head of Saab business area Surveillance.
In addition to supplying the MMR to the U.S. Coast Guard’s Offshore Patrol Cutter, Saab’s Sea Giraffe AMB radar, which has the US designation AN/SPS-77, is currently deployed on the US Navy’s Independence-class Littoral Combat Ship. A derivative of AN/SPS-77 known as AN/SPN-50, is also being developed to meet shipboard air traffic control requirements for the US Naval Air Systems Command.
The work is expected to be delivered in 2019.
