Our antennas are designed and tested to military standards for any platform from naval surface and subsurface to airborne subsonic and supersonic.

Electronic Warfare Antennas

While we offer a range of Military Off the Shelf (MOTS) products, Saab specializes in custom antenna design antennas or customization of standard antennas. Our core product line includes spiral-, sinuous-, horn-, LPDA-, biconical-, blade- and reflector antennas, particularly well-suited for applications that demand extreme bandwidths or rugged designs.

Saab has an impressive track record in developing and producing a wide range of antenna sub-systems, typically customized to specific user-and system requirements. They consist of multiple antenna sets operating in different frequency bands and with different polarizations, optimized for customer specific Direction Finding (DF) techniques and are integrated in a way that minimizes installation effects.

By combining high performance integrated antennas with complementary products like RF front ends, switching matrices, microwave modules, controllers, positioners and radomes, Saab caters for almost any EW antenna sub-system requirement. Our access to in-house and local antenna test ranges enables us to fully characterize these sub-systems, often delivering units with complete calibration coefficients, reducing integrated system testing requirements.
