STOCKHOLM (BNS): Defence and security company Saab and its American subsidiary Saab Sensis Corporation has been awarded contracts for supply of the multi-role naval surveillance radar Sea Giraffe AMB as part of the US Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship Program.

Saab Sensis manages the US Baseline of Sea Giraffe AMB and will provide US based program management hardware and software adaptations, system integration, testing, and total lifecycle support to General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems in support of the LCS program.

As the platform system engineering agent, General Dynamics is responsible for the design, integration and testing of the ship's combat and seaframe control systems. The General Dynamics combat and seaframe control systems are based on an open architecture computing infrastructure, known as OPEN CI.

The Sea Giraffe AMB (Agile Multi-Beam) 3D naval surveillance radar provides medium-range, multi-mission capability including 3D surveillance of simultaneous air and surface targets and weapons.

The Sea Giraffe also provides the proven, mature capabilities for periscope detection and splash spotting. Advanced signal processing allows the system to repeatedly demonstrate highly reliable detection of very small targets such as sea skimmers, anti-ship and anti-radiation missiles, small UAVs, mortars and swarming small craft.

The system is suitable for all typical naval environments including littoral and blue-water operations. Current Sea Giraffe customers include the Swedish, Polish, Canadian, Australian, and United Arab Emirates navies, among others, a company release said.
