Saab has received an order from the U.S. Government for X-band Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) technology, which has its base in fighter applications.

“This order is yet another proof of Saab’s state of the art gallium nitride based AESA radar development and further strengthens our offer of advanced radars and sensors”, says Anders Carp, head of Saab’s business area Surveillance.

Saab is a world leader in radar and sensor technology. With the fighter radar PS-05/A in operation on the Gripen fighter aircraft since 1992, Saab has solid experience of developing radars for fighters and other X band applications. Gripen is operational in Sweden, South Africa, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Thailand.
