SAAB bags order for Giraffe radar systems from UK

The United Kingdom (UK) Ministry of Defence has placed an order worth approximately $75 Million for additional Giraffe AMB (Agile Multi-Beam) 3-D air-defence radars from SAAB. Deliveries are slated for second half of 2015 and to be continued until 2018. The multi-mission Giraffe AMB surveillance radar system was first acquired by the United Kingdom in 2008 as part of the Land Environment Air Picture Provision (LEAPP) programme. Since deliveries started in 2010 it has been used to provide the real-time air picture in support of airspace management on deployed operations and at major events in the UK.
