Saab has exhibited serial production standard Giraffe 1X 3D solid-state radar installed on Supacat Jackal vehicle for the first time at the ongoing DSEI-2019 in London, UK.
“We have brought an operating Giraffe 1X to DSEI for the first time. In another first, the radar is installed on a Supacat Jackal vehicle, reflecting how the radar’s small footprint and low mass mean it can quickly be deployed wherever the commander’s need is greatest or when rapidity equates to survivability,” says Torbjörn Wolffram, Marketing & Sales, Saab’s business unit Radar Solutions.
The Giraffe 1X is a compact, lightweight 3D radar for ground based air defense role as well as for civil applications such as airports and site protection as well as naval applications for all types of vessels. It also boasts simultaneous air surveillance, Counter Rocket, Artillery and Mortar (C-RAM) and Counter Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) capability with an Enhanced Low, Slow and Small capability against low observable targets as well as UAVs.
The Giraffe 1X can be networked or operated fully self-contained with C3 capabilities. It is designed for flexibility of integration, with the option for both mounted and dismounted applications.
