Saab is proud to support special forces preparing for tomorrow’s demanding ground combat missions. From the combat-proven AT4 and Carl-Gustaf ® to the NLAW systems, our extensive experience in providing technologically advanced solutions will give your capability the edge. Expect nothing but the best from Saab’s full range, which also includes our Sirius Compact and CB90 NG, as well as Giraffe 1X, Signature Management, CBRN and Training & Simulation solutions. Our full portfolio ensures special forces have the advantage on the battlefield.
Our lives are becoming more complex, faster and more technological. As many benefits as growing connectivity and increasing digitalisation bring - they also pose a multitude of risks for new forms of threat. And they make our world more unpredictable. In order to ensure the security of people and societies in the future, technological and intellectual boundaries must be overcome. Experts at Saab therefore constantly analyse past and present military events and link them to global trends to draw lessons for the future. Their forecasts have been at the heart of development work for decades and make a significant contribution to ensuring that troops all over the world are already equipped today for the attacks of tomorrow.
The one-man-portable NLAW (Next Generation Light Anti-Tank Weapon) gives infantry the power to destroy immediately the most advanced main battle tank, wherever and whenever it appears within combat range, with only one shot. Using the proven OTA technology with an advanced fuze system, the missile always has a “full-size target” seen from above and strikes through the roof. The reliability and precision of NLAW enhances survivability on the modern battlefield. The weapon is fully compatible with night vision goggles and any other clip-on night vision devices.
Sirius Compact brings new capabilities thanks to its low size, weight and power, particularly in comparison to equivalent larger static solutions. Because it can easily be integrated to drones, vehicles, vessels, masts or man-portable applications, users can rapidly deploy the system and scale its coverage as the situation demands. Sirius Compact is modular, scalable and can be used stand-alone, in a network of sensors or as a complement to existing sensors.
CBRN – are you prepared?
Saab is a leading CBRN system integrator, specialising in the design and development of fully integrated end-to-end sensor networks for civilian and military applications. Our wide selection of sampling kits meets the requirements and different needs of forensic sampling of CBRN operators in air, water, soil, powder, objects and vegetation. The CBRN transport container is a cost-effective single container solution for all needs, certified for transport by sea, air, road or rail and a wide range of toxic, biological, pathogenic, radioactive, chemical and explosive samples.
The CBRN Automatic Warning and Reporting (AWR) system can be used stationary or mobile for surveillance and tactical applications. CBRN Reconnaissance Vehicle Kits (CRVKs) can be installed on civilian and military vehicles and fully support monitoring, sampling, reconnaissance and analysis in the field. Reversible, they reduce the costs associated with CBRNisation of a vehicle and limit operational availability issues.
Saab’s live training solutions delivers realism and the high-fidelity data to learn the key lesson to maximize combat effectiveness. Interoperability and fidelity, modularity and scalability are key components of excellent simulation training. Multinational training among allies and partners is a key issue for all NATO members. Saab has established close long-standing relationships with numerous NATO member and partner countries and operates in line with NATO standards.
Barracuda Soldier System
Barracuda Soldier Net is a lightweight thermal net that’s easy to use, whether waiting in bivouacs or moving between concealed set-ups. This is a versatile and simple solution that’s there when it’s needed to protect in times where you could be potentially exposed to sensor threats. Its modular design makes the Barracuda Soldier Net highly customisable and adaptable. Lightweight and easy to transport, the net can be neatly folded away into a small, carriable bag when it’s not needed and quickly accessed when it is. The visual and near-infrared colour pigments and patterns have been developed to be highly effective across a range of terrains, blending seamlessly into the background. Saab’s technology minimises the contrast between an object and the background, making sensory detection much harder.
The high-resolution 3D AESA radar Giraffe 1X is a lightweight and versatile multi-mission surveillance system that detects fast missiles and small UAVs, as well as RAM targets, in high-clutter environments. Giraffe 1X delivers a 360°, 75 km situational awareness with simultaneous air surveillance, GBAD target acquisition as well as RAM sense and warn capabilities without performance degradation. Thanks to the built in Drone Tracker, an enhanced functionality for detection and classification of low, slow and small objects the most challenging UAV threats are also handled. The radar covers, the entire search volume every second and provides air defence commanders with engagement quality target data and early warning with a tracking capability of more than 600 targets simultaneously.
The fast, all-aluminium CB90 Next Generation can effortlessly transport multiple troops and cargo in shallow or open waters with incredible speed and manoeuvrability. The interior combined with a solid bow ramp ensures rapid deployment on unprepared beaches. Thanks to the lightweight polyethylene skin and safety glass, the boat offers supreme CBRN and ballistic protection. A robust weapons platform can include stabilised turntables, smaller missile systems and remotely operated weapons stations such as the Saab Trackfire.Read more
