Sweden orders integrated ground-based air defence solution

10th December 2020 - 19:05 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Saab to provide new and upgraded radars under five-year contract

An integrated sensor and C2 system for use with ground-based air defence was ordered on 9 December by the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration.

Saab will provide the system under a five-year, SEK2.1 billion ($250 million) contract.

The order includes a number of Giraffe 4A multifunctional radars and upgrades of the Swedish Armed Forces’ existing Giraffe AMB surface radars. Saab will update existing C2 systems and deliver additional ones and the company will also provide extensive integration of the air defence battalions’ fire units. 

Sweden aims to invest more on defence over the next few years. The government on 15 October launched a proposal to invest in a ‘substantial increase of capabilities’ for its armed forces.

The Total Defence 2021–2025 programme seeks to create a ‘new and expanded war organisation’.
