Saab has received a $16.8M order to provide the Sea Giraffe Agile Multi Beam (AMB), Multi-Mode Radar (MMR) for the US Navy’s newest Offshore Patrol Cutter (OPC).

Saab’s Sea Giraffe MMR – a 3D, electronically scanned phased array radar –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 $118.5M USD (960 MSEK).

“The US 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,” says Erik Smith, President and CEO of Saab Defense and Security USA.

The MMR radar provides simultaneous sea to sky radar coverage against the most challenging tracks to ensure total situational awareness.
