Another level of rugged
We offer a wide range of rugged vehicle electronics (Vetronics). High performance solutions which meet the harsh environmental requirements on the battlefield while keeping lifecycle costs to a minimum.
Whether your need is minimum space or maximum capability, we provide a rugged system that meets your exact application and secures your operational capabilities.
Military vehicle-mounted cameras and displays need to be rugged for use in the most extreme environmental conditions including vibration, shock, humidity and temperature. More than 340 vehicles in the Norwegian Armed Forces are equipped with our vision enhancement system. Sergeant Chris Mikkelsen from the Norwegian Army is one of its users.
Tailored to succeed
Our extensive product portfolio allows for tailoring a solution to suit your needs. We have the experience and expertise to assist you, whether you want to upgrade a single component in an existing 4 x 4, or design a complete vehicle electronic system for a whole fleet of new APC:s.
Our philosophy in vehicle integration of Rugged Vetronics is quite simple. Every component and every function is based on a common, expandable and scalable architecture. Seamlessly integrated, all sub-systems and elements understand each other and share hardware and network structures.
The advantages are obvious: any kind of information can be directed to any user. So several users can share real-time information and you can also, for instance, show HUMS data, camera images and BMS data on the same screen.
The systems are modular and scaleable, so if for instance you need to upgrade computers, sensors or displays in the future, the same cabling and fixtures can be utilised, saving time and money in the process.
When the going gets tough
Saab Vetronics equipment does not need external dampening or to be suspended in wires to survive shocks inside a wheeled or tracked vehicle. Bolt it directly to the metal and it will survive, even directly attached to the gun-barrel of a grenade launcher thanks to its solid design.
Situational awareness save lives
Situational awareness on the battlefield is essential to survive. Without a clear grasp of the tactical situation, a vehicles weapon systems and armour is irrelevant.
At least as important as the tactical situation is the safety of anyone moving in the vicinity of the vehicle. Be it war or peace, no driver ever wants to risk hurting his fellow servicemen while manoeuvring.
Our rugged camera systems enhances the situational awareness of the driver and adds a layer of security when operating vehicles with poor line of sights. The extremely low latency system makes it possible to drive in high speed and even darkness using IR.
Get the big picture using a small footprint
Forces involved in mission-critical operations must be able to respond with agility to secure the distribution information throughout the command structure, all the way to the outermost nodes in their network – the soldiers in the field. Vetronics is a vital part of such capability. In order to suit the confined spaces of military vehicles, the size, weight and power requirements of these systems must be minimised while functionality and performance remains optimised.
In addition, as our displays and systems do not rely on external dampening or cooling systems, they can be placed wherever needed, saving valuable space inside vehicles. It is also possible to reduce the number of installed units as the flexible design allows information from other systems to be integrated and displayed on the same screen, eliminating the need for multiple displays.
Emit nothing but information
Modern digital communications systems can be sensitive to interference of nearby electronic equipment. All Saab Vetronic equipment is heavily shielded and will not affect or degrade the performance of other systems installed in the vehicle, nor is it sensitive to external interference.
The Saab military electronics product range is prepared for use in the most extreme environmental conditions including vibration, shock, humidity, moisture, temperature and EMI.
The equipment is qualified according to applicable military standards including MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-461F to handle a wide range of operating and storage temperatures.
Being a systems integrator, we design all individual components to exceed Mil-specs in order to meet our committed system specs.
The main design features are military-standard connectors, climatically sealed housing, easy maintenance, few parts and low power requirement. All products are also prepared for future functionality and provide instant start-up.
