Tactical Electronics

Rapid and reliable information networks are essential for today's highly mobile and dynamic military operations. Vehicle-mounted information technology is changing the battlefield, providing capabilities vital to keep a tactical advantage.

Key features

Rugged – built beyond standards
Heavily shielded – emit nothing but information
Low physical footprint - optimised for confined spaces

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.

Saab's vision enhancement system

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

Being a system integrator in military vehicle electronics, Saab’s extensive product portfolio and integrations of 3rd party mission systems allow us to tailor a solution to suit your needs.

We have the experience and expertise to assist you, whether you want to employ a completely new electronic architecture or just upgrade a single component, on platforms such as IFVs, APCs and MBTs.

The systems are modular and scalable, allowing for processor upgrades or system components replacements, using same cabling and fixtures. This can save you precious time and resources when maintaining your capabilities up to date.

Modular TSS

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.

All equipment is prepared for use in the most extreme environmental conditions, including vibration, shock, humidity, moisture, temperature and EMI.

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.

Prepared for the most extreme environmental conditions

The Saab military electronics product range is prepared for use in the most extreme environmental conditions including vibration, shock, humidity, moisture, temperature and EMI.

Qualified to applicable military standards

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.

Designed for perfect fit

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.

Built beyond standards

Did you know...

Our rugged camera systems provide virtually no latency, enabling high speed driving and remote control of critical systems. Here are some interesting facts about our tactical electronics solutions that you may not already know.

  • Enables driving and operation in total darkness
  • Any camera can be viewed on any display on the network
  • Thanks to our compression and distribution technology it is possible to share network with other systems
