Saab has been contracted by the NATO Support and Procurement Agency to upgrade three SINDRE I air surveillance radars in Norway, the company announced on 11 October.

Deliveries will take place between 2017 and 2020, with work undertaken by Saab Technologies Norway, in Halden, Norway and Saab Defense and Security USA, in Syracuse, New York, US.

The three 3D/MPR SINDRE I radars originally became operative in the early 1990s and were manufactured by Alenia.

Under the contract, Saab will replace obsolete hardware as well as upgrading software.

Tore Bekkevold, managing director, Saab Norway, said: ‘Saab’s radar upgrading approach is a proven and effective way to extend the service life of existing air surveillance radars. The Royal Norwegian Air Force will benefit from our low-risk and cost efficient upgrade programme.’
