Saab has received an order to support algorithm development and evaluation for an airborne Active Electrically Scanned Array (AESA) radar under development for South Korea’s effort to build an indigenous fighter aircraft.

The radar development programme is being led by the Korean Agency for Defence Development (ADD).

Under the $15 million order Saab will work in cooperation with ADD and its contractual partner LIG Nex1, a Seoul-based company that develops and produces a wide range of advanced precision electronic systems.

The Republic of Korea has a long-term ambition to develop a domestic fighter aircraft, including relevant avionic equipment such as AESA radar.

Anders Carp, head of business area surveillance at Saab, said: ‘Republic of Korea is a valued partner and we are proud to be part of the airborne AESA radar development programme.

'This further proves our position as the leading provider and partner to develop the latest fighter aircraft technology and sub systems. One of our objectives is to partner with Republic of Korean industry and government to support the development of a domestic fighter.’
