Sea Giraffe MMR for US Navy ESB
Saab will supply its Sea Giraffe AMB Multi Mode Radar (MMR) for the US Navy's Expeditionary Sea Base class vessel USNS Hershel Woody Williams, the company announced on 1 August.
The order from the navy also includes Saab's 9LV Naval Combat System for radar control and display delivering enhanced situational awareness as well as Identification Friend or Foe capability.
Designated as AN/SPS-77 by the US Navy, the MMR is a three-dimensional, electronically scanned phased array radar system.
Erik Smith, president and CEO of Saab Defense and Security USA, said: ‘Saab's Sea Giraffe MMR will strengthen the US Military Sealift Command's capability by providing total situational awareness across a wide range of tasks including expeditionary warfare missions.
‘Our naval radars are now selected on board five classes of ships in the US. We are proud that the navy continues to trust Saab radars to enable its mission success across the full spectrum of maritime environments and operations.’
The work will be carried out during the period of 2018-2020 at Saab in Gothenburg, Sweden and Syracuse in New York, US.
