Exceptional performance through wideband, high Probability of Intercept (POI) and high sensitivity.
Rapid system reaction for identification and classification through sovereign ownership of library management capability, and hand-off to electronic protection systems.
Simplified system operation/maintenance, low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) and a modern software defined operating system ensure lowest through-life cost of ownership.

Compact, high performance naval ESM and ELINT solutions



Saab naval ESM and ELINT

The UME/SME solutions provide broadband Continuous Wave (CW) immunity, together with advanced multi-path cancellation and Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) detection algorithms, for rapid detection, classification and identification of emissions.

Optimised for low SWaP requirements, the integrated wideband tactical solution complements your operational advantage, whether on the open seas, or in the littorals.


Strategic intra-pulse, inter-pulse, and scan-pattern analysis functions can be performed in parallel to your tactical operation, when necessary.

These features maintain your vessel’s superior detection capability, performing high-speed automatic classification and identification of emissions, using world-class library management solutions under your control. Our solution provides you with complete control of the entire Electronic Warfare (EW) management process, from detection through to advanced post-mission analysis tools, database development. and maintenance.
