Naval Laser Warning System NLWS & Tactic Submarine Systems ESM and ELINT
Saab’s naval EW solutions include a Naval Laser Warning System (NLWS) for surface ships as well as LIDAR (blue-green laser) warning sensor for use on submarines. It consists of a number of sensors together with a laser warning controller, providing vital information to the command team, enhancing their awareness and alerting them to the presence of laser activity.
The ESM family consists of a range of compact, high performance tactical ESM and ELINT systems, which meet today’s stringent operational EW requirements. The systems maintain signal analysis capability, even in dense signal environments. The parameters can be refined in the fine analysis mode, where intra-pulse modulation, scan patterns and inter-pulse analysis can be performed. ESM is suitable for installation on all surface and sub-surface platforms.
