Saab Innovation Hub Bringing ideas together

The Innovation Hub will bring together Saab’s long-term partners in the UK, working together to keep people and society safe. Utilising its thinking edge, Saab provides ground-breaking products and solutions that help protect the UK from the threats of today and tomorrow. 

The Innovation Hub, based at Imperial College's White City campus in London, will be the focal point for our work.

This initial £3.5 million investment will bring together a national university network to strengthen our work at the thinking edge of radar technology, electronic warfare and cybersecurity.

The Hub will reach new areas of the UK’s STEM network, sharing Saab’s advanced expertise with the wealth of world-leading scientists and academics that the UK has to offer.

Saab’s investment in innovation has yielded capabilities such as the Giraffe 1X, a small lightweight high-performing 3D radar that is revolutionising portable radar capability, and the ELSS (Enhanced Low, Slow and Small) function capable of detecting even the smallest UAVs. Saab’s suite of Arexis electronic warfare technologies are also proving themselves to be at a leading edge capability that can jam anti-stealth air defence systems.
