The Giraffe 1X can be networked or operated fully self-contained with C3 capabilities. It is designed for flexibility of integration, with the option for both mounted and dismounted applications.

Torbjörn Wolffram, Marketing & Sales, Saab’s business unit Radar Solutions, said, “We have brought an operating Giraffe 1X to DSEI to showcase how the radar is the new benchmark in so many ways for the small radar segment. In another first, the Giraffe 1X at DSEI is installed on a Supacat Jackal vehicle, reflecting how the radar’s small footprint and low mass mean it can quickly be deployed wherever the commander’s need is greatest or when rapidity equates to survivability.”

The Giraffe 1X will provide a live demonstration of its capabilities at DSEI by viewing the airspace from its position at the show. Visitors will be able to talk to Saab experts about its unique features and see for themselves the high quality situational awareness users can expect.

The air picture generated by the Giraffe 1X will also be supplied to the nearby stand of Chess Dynamics in support of their counter-UAV system.

The Giraffe 1X 3D solid-state radar is located at the East outdoor display area 23.
