Sea Giraffe 1X

With a higher level of awareness towards multiple domains including small targets, you create time to manage any threats in any waters.

Lightweight multi-mission surveillance radar

The Sea Giraffe 1X is optimised for maritime security and force protection but its capabilities reach well beyond these and serve the many dimensions of naval conflicts. Based on over 60 years of radar development, this multi-purpose, lightweight 3D AESA radar system, operates on the X band and offers outstanding performance.

Sea Giraffe 1X makes maritime platforms more capable and better prepared to execute missions in the world’s littorals, ruling your domain. It is the perfect choice for navies, amphibious forces and coast guards looking for a system with higher performance and extremely low footprint. For example, Sea Giraffe 1X provides comprehensive Electronic Counter-Countermeasure (ECCM) capabilities. With easily adapted interfaces, Sea Giraffe 1X has been developed to support any combat system interface architecture.

Detection superiority

Sea Giraffe 1X gives you the multi-role advantage providing quick and reliable simultaneous detection of surface and air targets including sea-skimming missiles with very small radar cross-sections. Thanks to Saab’s world-leading naval radar technology, this capability is also maintained in the extreme clutter conditions of littorals.

Covering the entire search volume every second , Sea Giraffe 1X provides accurate 3D data for all air targets in the search volume. The automatic tracking functionality provides quick and reliable feedback to the operator. The radar is capable of distinguishing between fixed wing, rotary wing and surface targets.

Light-weight efficiency

The total system weight is less than 150 kg and the topside weight is 100 kg. This low system weight, together with its very low power consumption, makes Sea Giraffe 1X suitable for use not only on smaller vessels and highly manoeuvrable forces, but also as a radar complement on larger ships.

By leveraging the standardised baseline components within the well-established Sea Giraffe product line, Saab can offer an effective service and support solution specially designed to meet the needs of Sea Giraffe 1X customers.

Multi Sensor Solution

Sea Giraffe Multi Sensor Solution combines the Sea Giraffe 4A Fixed Face and the rotating Sea Giraffe 1X radar.

  • Provides optimal overlapping performance and redundancy for air and surface surveillance
  • Hypersonic Detection Mode for detection and tracking of hypersonic targets
