Saab has received an additional order from General Dynamics for delivery of its Sea Giraffe AMB naval radar for the US Navy’s Independence-class Littoral Combat Ships LCS 28 and LCS 30, the company announced on 23 November.

Designated AN/SPS-77 in US service, the Sea Giraffe AMB is a multi-role, medium-range, 3D surveillance radar system for naval applications. It provides simultaneous air and surface surveillance, and is suitable for demanding naval environments from the littorals to blue water operations.

The company has also received an additional contract from General Dynamics with options for delivery of another 11 systems in the LCS programme through 2024.

Erik Smith, president and CEO of Saab Defence and Security USA, said: ‘The Sea Giraffe AMB is currently being delivered to five classes of US Navy surface ships as a part of three separate US Navy programmes, and this follow-on LCS contract further strengthens Saab’s position as a premier radar supplier for the US Navy.

‘The Sea Giraffe AMB has been developed and proven to meet the requirements of US Navy missions from air and surface surveillance to air traffic control. Saab is proud to be a trusted partner to the US Navy supporting an ever increasing set of complex radar missions across the fleet and around the world.’
