Gripen E-series is a true swing-role fighter with outstanding capabilities. The fighter is developed to counter and defeat the most advanced threats in a modern battlespace and to continuously evolve in order to keep up with new challenges. We have built an intelligent fighter system that rapidly embraces new technology and tactics in a way that will always keep us ahead.
The E-series has a new and more powerful engine, improved range performance and the ability to carry greater payloads. It also has a new AESA-radar, InfraRed Search and Track System (IRST), highly advanced electronic warfare and communication systems together with superior situational awareness. The E-series redefines air power for the 21st century by extending operational capabilities.
Defeat any threat. Anywhere.
Gripen E-series carries a variety of both active and passive measures to disrupt enemy efforts and protect itself and other friendly units. Its advanced electronic warfare system, similar to an electronic shield, allows disruption of the enemy’s ability to function effectively. This can be used either to assist in destruction of enemy assets or simply to reduce the enemy’s ability to act. All this while ensuring mission success, using the latest weaponry and countermeasures
See the unseen. Before being seen.
The ability to attack or assess opposition at range is a key feature in the E-series. Gripen E-series utilizes all available data in the battle cloud – whether coming from Gripen fighters or other air, land or sea-based units, and fuses it locally on every platform but we are also fusing globally between fighters. The result: We see the unseen. Gripen E-series reduces the likelihood of being detected by relying on its passive sensors, or through active jamming. This means that weapons can be used either beyond the point at which opposing forces can respond or without them ever realising Gripen was there in the first place.
In control. Intuitively.
When at the peak of a complex mission, every second counts. Man and machine need to work together to stay ahead of the opponent. Gripen E-series achieves the optimal balance between the pilot's and the fighter's workload, letting fighter intelligence take on a larger role. Like a sixth sense. Gripen E-serie’s fighter intelligence has the capability to work autonomously on several areas simultaneously, and provides the pilot with suggestions. Suggestions ranging from anything between weapon selection and maneuvering of the fighter. The right tactical information is shared and displayed at the right moment, enabling quick and precise decision making. This allows the Gripen E pilot to be in control – intuitively.
Adapt Fast. Stay Relevant.
Gripen E-series offers a fighter which rapidly adapts to unfolding technological developments and stays operationally relevant over time. Equipped with a smart avionics architecture, existing algorithms can be updaed by new ones without reducing the high availability of the aircraft. The architecture is also the basis for making rapid hardware and weaponry updates, with a high degree of customization possible for each customer nation. Gripen E-series will not only allow you to keep at pace with evolution, it will allow you to lead it.
Gripen Maritime - The future of naval air power
Gripen Maritime is part of the Gripen E-series. We are establishing Gripen Maritime as its new generation carrier-based fighter for the future. Intended for both CATOBAR and STOBAR operations, the Gripen Maritime size and flight/hangar deck manoeuvrability will offer a simple and robust fighter in terms of all embarked operations. Its small logistics footprint and reduced spares inventory will make it significantly more maintainable and require far fewer personnel than existing fleet fighters.
Gripen Maritime will meet or exceed all operational requirements for maritime fast jet operator nations around the world. The fighter can operate in high humidity and is designed to withstand the corrosive effect of salt water ingress. The GE 414G engine is fully marinised for embarked operations.
Steady deck landings
Rapid pitch and roll authority as well as precision glide slope control will give Gripen Maritime pilots an ideal platform for safe and steady deck landings.
