11th February 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab has received a contract from the French Ministry of Defence’s Directorate of Aeronautical Maintenance to support the Giraffe AMB surface-based radar system, the company announced on 5 February.

The contract includes an initial two-year period from January 2019, with options to extend for up to five additional years, to 2026.

Under the contract, Saab will provide support, maintenance and spare parts for the French radar system.

Saab’s multi-mission Giraffe AMB radars have been in operation with the French armed forces since 2006 and are being used for a wide range of missions including military air surveillance.

Anders Carp, head of Saab’s business area surveillance, said: ‘Long-term support is a key part of Saab’s offer and we look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship with France. We are proud to support the French armed forces with our Giraffe AMB mobile command and control shelter, which features its own radar sensor.’
