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.
