The upgrade is based on the customers’ requirement to sustain the service life and enhances the performance of the Halifax Class frigates. The work will be carried out in Halifax, Canada and Gothenburg, Sweden, starting this calendar year and continuing through 2026.

“This order has further strengthened our Sea Giraffe radar market position and continues the excellent partnership that Saab enjoys with the Royal Canadian Navy”, says Carl-Johan Bergholm, head of Saab’s Business Area Surveillance.
