Saab has won a Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) contract 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.

Deliveries of the modern 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 to handle existing and future threats, Saab said in a statement Wednesday.

Giraffe 4A is a multi-function radar that gives the user a range of capabilities, one system can be used for air surveillance and air defence as well as warning and artillery locating tasks. It is a digital multi-channel system featuring Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) technology based on gallium nitride (GaN).

The work will take place at Saab in Gothenburg with deliveries from 2019, the company said.
