Saab ES-05 Raven AESA radar for Gripen

Saab has received an order from the United States Government for X-band Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) technology.

The AESA technology has its base in fighter applications, a release from Saab said without specifying the nature of application for which the technology was purchased by the US.

“This order is yet another proof of Saab’s gallium nitride based AESA radar development and further strengthens our offer of advanced radars and sensors”, says Anders Carp, head of Saab’s business area Surveillance.

The latest Gripen E/F fighter jet comes equipped with a SELEX ES-05 RAVEN AESA radar.

Saab’s fighter radar PS-05/A is in operation on the Gripen fighter aircraft since 1992, Saab has solid experience of developing radars for fighters and other X band applications. Gripen is operational in Sweden, South Africa, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Thailand, the release added.

Earlier this week, Saab announced the development of a hypersonic detection mode optimised for its Sea Giraffe 4A Fixed Face, which is a fixed array configuration that belongs to Saab’s multi-functional family of S-band AESA radar systems.
