Saab flight-tests 'magic box' to enable GNSS-denied Gripen operations
Saab has developed and flight-tested a sensor and data fusion system to allow aircraft to operate effectively in a GNSS-denied environment and is including the system as part of its best-and-final Gripen offer to meet Finland’s HX fighter aircraft requirement.
Described by company officials as a 'magic box [that] fuses data, sensors and geographic database', it allows manned and unmanned aircraft or weapons to operate in scenarios where systems such as GPS, GLONASS or Galileo are jammed. It allows the platform to establish its own position, the position of friendly assets, and the position of targets or enemy assets.
