Saab has signed a contract with the French Armament General Directorate (DGA) for an upgrade and life extension of the French Air and Space Force’s mobile command and control systems, which feature Saab’s Giraffe AMB radar and command and control shelter.

This contract is part of the French aerospace operations command and control system programme, SCCOA. The upgrades include adaptations to further enhance the Air Force’s NATO interoperability, information assurance and Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) capabilities. The lifespan of the French systems will be extended in order to allow its operational use up to at least 2033.

Saab received the initial order for the Giraffe AMB systems and command and control shelter from France in 2001. The French Air and Space Force has used the mobile command and control systems for a wide range of tasks, including military air surveillance in France and on international missions.
