Saab Sea Giraffe 1X Multi-Modal Radar at Sea-Air-Space 2024

The Sea Giraffe 1X Multi-Modal (air and surface search) radar will be on display at   booth 701 from April 8-10, 2024. 

Giraffe 1X Deployment Set

The SG1X (SG1X) is a tactical X-band Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) solid-state radar. The SG1X on display will be in the highly mobile and flexible “Deployment Set” configuration which is adaptable to almost any naval, surface, or ground platform. SG1X - with its compact format, low weight, and low power consumption - is easy to install and integrate without impacting platform stability.

SG1X characteristics and capabilities:

  • Performs air and surface surveillance simultaneously
  • Surveillance can be conducted in parallel with Rocket Artillery Mortar (RAM) detection
  • Counter - Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) through the ‘Drone Tracker’ function
  • Detection of small targets and fast reaction time, e.g., drone and small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) at an update rate of 60 RPM 
  • Supports electronic counter-countermeasures (ECCM) with side lobe blanking and cancellation
  • High accuracy three-dimensional (3D) information for all targets
  • Target classification
  • Target identification to weapons systems
  • Fast reaction time

The SG1X will support Maritime Domain Awareness and Sea Denial and Control with the ability to detect, identify, classify, and track air and surface threats, and can operate independently or be integrated to share information with on board combat management systems offering sensor cooperation and data fusion flexibility. 

Please join us at Booth 701 on the exhibition floor to hear more about the SG1X and how it can contribute to maritime domain awareness and sea control superiority.
