EAST SYRACU.S.E, N.Y. - The defense and security company Saab has received an order from the U.S. Navy to provide the Sea Giraffe Agile Multi Beam (AMB), Multi-Mode Radar (MMR). The order value amounts to $16.8 million (SEK140 million).

Saab's Sea Giraffe AMB MMR, a 3D, electronically scanned phased array radar, will be deployed on the U.S. Coast Guard's (U.S.CG) newest class of ship, the Offshore Patrol Cutter (OPC). The Sea Giraffe provides high radiated power, selectable waveforms, and modern signal processing to consistently achieve high performance across various marine environments. The initial order covers the procurement of two systems with options for additional radars providing a total potential contract value of up to $118.5 million (SEK960 million).

"The U.S. Coast Guard is increasingly called upon to support an array of critical missions in the most challenging conditions. Saab's OPC MMR will support the customer in fulfilling those missions, from the tropics to the Arctic. The MMR radar provides simultaneous sea to sky radar coverage against the most challenging tracks to ensure total situational awareness", said Erik Smith, President and CEO of Saab Defense and Security U.S.A.

Saab is a world leader in radar and sensor technology. The company's SPS-77 radar is currently deployed on the U.S. Navy's Independence-class Littoral Combat Ship. Additionally, a derivative of SPS-77 known as SPN-50, is being developed to meet the Air Traffic Control needs on aircraft carrier and amphibious assault class ships for the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command. The addition of the OPC program to the current Sea Giraffe deliveries will allow Saab to further leverage commonality and provide additional value to the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard.

The order will contribute new jobs to SDAS's Sensor Systems facility in East Syracuse, N.Y. In January, Saab signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with New York State aimed at expanding Saab's presence in Central New York and creating more high-tech, local jobs in the region.

"This allows us to move forward on our Central New York growth strategy, and to expand our deliveries of Saab's proven naval radar capabilities to these important U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard customers", said Erik Smith.
