Saab will showcase the Compact Radar Module for the Giraffe 1X radar at Eurosatory 2024

The Compact Radar Module is designed to offer an all-in-one solution. The antenna will by a press of a button fold down into the compact and lightweight radar module, which offers a versatile and highly mobile capability for fast operational requirements. The well-known, battle proven and constantly software upgraded, lightweight Giraffe 1X radar can now be delivered together with the Compact Radar Module as one operational item. Its small footprint and large search volume (75 km) make it excellent for urgent operations with limited operational infrastructure.

“Giraffe 1X Compact Radar Module is an all-in-one solution, made with mobility and operational urgency as key user needs. The Compact Radar Module is the latest example of how we are leveraging the capabilities of the Giraffe 1X radar, giving customers a number of different ways to deploy Giraffe 1X wherever and however it can maximise their operational effectiveness,” says Carl-Johan Bergholm, head of Saab’s business area Surveillance.

Giraffe 1X provides commanders with quality air defence target data, drone detection for counter-UAS, and sense and warn capability simultaneously for rockets, artillery and mortars. Giraffe 1X also offers continuous software upgrades in order to meet emerging threats.
