Saab will supply the Sea Giraffe agile multi-beam, multi-mode radar (MMR) for the US Coast Guard under a contract with the US Navy announced on 3 October.

The contract is worth $16.8 million, covering the procurement of two systems with options for additional radar systems.

The radar will be installed on the coast guard’s new Offshore Patrol Cutters.

The Sea Giraffe is a 3D, electronically scanned phased array radar designed to provide simultaneous sea to sky radar coverage to ensure total situational awareness. It provides high radiated power, selectable waveforms, and modern signal processing to consistently achieve high performance across various marine environments.

Erik Smith, president and CEO of Saab Defense and Security US, said: ‘The US coast guard is increasingly called upon to support an array of critical missions in the most challenging conditions. Saab’s OPC MMR will support the customer in fulfilling those missions, from the tropics to the Arctic.’
