LONDON (BNS): The first Saab GIRAFFE AMB unit for the United Kingdom's Land Environment Air Picture Provision (LEAPP) programme has successfully undergone acceptance testing and delivery to Lockheed Martin UK and UK Ministry of Defence (MoD).

According to a news release by the Saab Systems, the delivery was achieved on time and the delivery of its subsequent units will be completed within 2010.

“We are proud to be part of the team delivering this critically important equipment capability to the UK MoD and are confident that our GIRAFFE AMB will be a key asset for the UK armed forces”, said Micael Johansson head of Saab’s Electronic Defence Systems business area, as quoted by the news release.

The Saab GIRAFFE AMB is a part of the LEAPP system for provision of near real time air picture to land component headquarters, ground based air defence and other units.

The GIRAFFE AMB constitutes the organic sensor element of the system, enabling high performance against difficult targets and autonomous provision of a high quality air picture without dependence on other systems.
