Saab presents new AESA fighter radar at ADEX 2015

With 60 years of experience at the forefront of radar design, Saab is one of the world’s leading radar suppliers with surface and airborne systems in operational service in more than 30 countries worldwide.

We have more than 30 years of AESA (active electronically scanned array) radar design experience starting with our Erieye AEW&C system; the first of its kind to use AESA technology. Last year we expanded our surface radar portfolio introducing five all-new AESA radar variants for land and sea. Development of Saab’s fighter radars began in the 1950s  and since then we have built thousands of radars for several different fighter types. Now Saab has applied the very latest in AESA technology, using the most modern materials and design techniques, to produce a next-generation high-performance AESA radar for combat aircraft

The radar business is a strategic element of Saab and we are constantly developing new radar systems with the latest technology. At ADEX we are exhibiting our latest contribution in the airborne segment; a new AESA fighter radar addressing the Korean KF-X programme, but with many other applications also. Through its scalable design Saab’s radar is suitable for new and emerging fighter designs, and could also be a crucial element of a mid-life update for other aircraft.
