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.
Thales today announced a 4D AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) air and surface surveillance radar, the NS50 for naval platforms. With the NS50, Thales aims to bring the benefits of 4D AESA radar to naval vessels where 2D radars are the standard, a Thales release said
Northrop Grumman has delivered the first AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task-Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) that incorporates advanced high power and high efficiency gallium nitride (GaN) antenna technology, to the US Marine Corps. GaN technology provides cost savings and multiple performance benefits including enhanced system sensitivity and increased reliability
Saab has introduced the Sea Giraffe 4A Fixed Face (FF), a fixed-panel configuration of Saabs existing and delivered active electrically scanned array (AESA) radar family. The radar is a derivative of Saabs family of rotating, full AESA S-band radar systems
Saab has received an order for support of algorithm development and evaluation of airborne AESA radar for South Koreas indigenous KF-X fighter jet. The radar development programme is led by the Korean Agency for Defence Development (ADD) and Saab will work in cooperation with ADD and its contractual partner LIG Nex1
In what is claimed as the most significant development in aircraft design since the invention of wing warping by the Wright brothers, BAE Systems and the University of Manchester flew the MAGMA unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to demonstrate two innovative flow control technologies which could revolutionise future aircraft design. MAGMA, designed and developed by researchers at The University of Manchester in collaboration with engineers from BAE Systems, successfully trialled the two ‘flap-free technologies earlier this month at the Llanbedr Airfield, UK
SAAB has completed testing its Gripen E multirole fighter aircraft with two Meteor Beyond Visual Range Air-to-Air Missiles (BVRAAM) for the first time on Monday. This test with Meteor is a part of the weapon integration progress in the Gripen E test programme
