New CBRN detection concept from Saab

Defence and security company Saab introduces a new concept in Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) detection and warning system designed for use by non-specialists in the field.  


The Saab Automatic Warning and Reporting System (AWR) is a flexible, modular and future proof solution. It can be soldier or vehicle mounted as well as in a fixed installation. The AWR consists of both hardware and software and is designed to provide early warnings to units and personnel on the battlefield. The system helps the operator to make fast and accurate decisions, which is a key factor in limiting CBRN threats.

The AWR is also suitable for civil use to protect personnel operating in hazardous and toxic environments, such as in the Oil & Gas, Chemical and Nuclear industries.

“The AWR is a highly flexible force protection capability spanning over a wide area; and following the vehicle or the soldier wherever they operate. The flexible solution allows you to use sensors of your own choice, change instruments pending on changes in threats scenarios, or replace instruments with a newer version if needed," says Nils-Erik Lindblom, Director of Marketing and Sales for CBRN at Saab´s Business Area Support and Services.

The Saab Automatic Warning and Reporting System will be displayed at Eurosatory 2012 at Saab outdoor area at Stand F171.
