  • Navies and coast guards are facing new challenges and emphasis is shifting towards littoral operations and self defence capabilities. In areas like the Arabian Gulf, with intense maritime traffic, coast guards need to be prepared for threats such as missiles, helicopters and unmanned aircraft systems that are not only becoming faster but also smaller. There is also the challenge of dealing with asymmetric threats from pirates and terrorists.

  • A revolution in airborne surveillance

     |  Story

    The world is constantly changing and so are the challenges that nations are faced with. In today’s complex wold, we need to be aware of what is happening around us in the air, sea and on the ground.  And with new technologies making targets and threats more difficult to detect, this is a demanding task. Saab took on this challenge and arrived at a revolution in airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) – GlobalEye.

  • Saab’s RBS15 Mk3 anti-ship missile

    The archipelago of the Baltic Sea is the largest in the world, and with its tens of thousands of islands and skerries it is both beautiful and awe-inspiring. But from a military perspective, it is also an extremely tough and demanding environment. Its narrow waters and closely spaced islands make it difficult for vessels to move freely and operate in the area. The highly cluttered environment provides cover to friendly units and enemy vessels alike, necessitating the use of systems that are robust, nimble and intelligent. With its naval roots in the shallow waters of the Baltic archipelago, Saab is positioned as a world leader in products and solutions for the littoral environment.

  • The need for strategic protection of national waters has never been more prevalent with submarine incursions and piracy incidents on the increase. In order to meet these challenges an effective Anti-Submarine Warfare capability is required along with the ability to carry out a wide selection of Maritime ISR roles.

  • The waters of the Arabian Gulf represent an area of dense maritime traffic containing vessels of all sizes operating within a relatively small, and in most parts shallow, environment. These vessels include 'super tankers' and large cargo vessels all the way down to small power boats and the traditional Arabian dhows that many in the region continue to rely on for their livelihoods. As such the area also represents an important trade route for many regional and international companies. When combined with the somewhat challenging security situation in the region this only increases the need for superior command and control and situational awareness at sea.

  • As seaborne trade and human activities in the coastal zone increase, then so do the threats. Piracy, smuggling, illegal fishing, oil pollution, illegal underwater activities and other criminal operations violating the borders – we all have a growing need for superior maritime awareness to increase safety for our people.
