MSHORAD: Saab’s response to the new battlefield
The multi-domain battlefield poses major challenges for militaries when it comes to protecting their troops and population as well as national security. 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.
Thanks to the fully integrated measuring system, innovative control elements, high-precision reach and non-destructive laser guidance, our system of ground-based air defense (GBAD - Ground-Based Air Defense) RBS 70 NG is different from all others on the market. Our top-notch system provides a highly flexible, scalable and long-term solution to the ever-evolving requirements of PVOS.
Today's ground-based air defence systems are all about mobility, adaptability, networking of different systems and platforms, as well as cost-efficiency, reliability and modularity. MSHORAD is the answer to the new era of the battlefield, it will detect any target, react and strike when time is of the essence.Read more
Short-range mobile radars such as Saab's combat-proven Giraffe 1X radar locate aircraft, helicopters and drones, as well as artillery shells, mortar rounds and rockets simultaneously. The system has a range of 75 kilometers and a detection area of 360 degrees, and in the event of an identified object, it automatically sends information to the connected command and control system. Multifunctional, high-performance 3D radar systems Giraffe 1X also make ground-based air defense highly mobile due to its compactness and low weight of less than 150 kilograms. Mounted on vehicles, the sensor also has a "track on move" mode, enabling real-time monitoring of airspace even when in motion.
Training & Simulation
Joint training of allied nations is a key topic among all NATO members. Interoperability training at brigade level and beyond is being given greater focus in order to ensure effective training and to be prepared for current and future threats. It also enables roles to be changed quickly and flexibly. Combat forces are equipped with new and emerging technologies and operate in an increasingly complex battlefield, under accurate hostile fire, inflicting and taking casualties, in extreme environmental conditions. Whilst there is no substitute for actual combat experience, realism is key to optimize the training experience. Saab’s live training solutions delivers that realism and the high-fidelity data to learn the key lesson to maximize combat effectiveness.
Giraffe AMB provides accurate real-time air target information creating time to act. Its built-in C3 system makes it ideal for use as a combined multi-mission sensor and GBAD command post.
The truly multifunctional long range Giraffe 4A creates time to act with capabilities including air surveillance, weapon location and ground based air defence.
The Universal Tank and Anti-Aircraft System (UTAAS) is a versatile targeting and fire control solution for tanks and combat vehicles. It provides a high probability of engagement against ground targets as well as against helicopters and aircraft moving at high speed.Read more
