Rapid reaction Air-Lift and ground movement of critical equipment

The SAAB Giraffe Radar is a family of land and naval based surveillance and air defense command and control systems. The sophisticated surveillance functions with two- / three-dimensional passive electronically scanned array radar.

The Giraffe radar is tailored for operations with medium- and Short Range Air Defense (SHORAD) missile or gun systems, or, for use as gap-fillers in a larger air defense system. The radar gets its name from the distinctive folding mast which, when deployed, allows the radar to see over nearby terrain features such as trees, extending its effective range against low-level air targets.

The system is provided with ISO-fix corners which makes it possible to adopt the WingLift Container Carrier system. This enables convenient Air-lift loading and off-loading but also short distance movements in rough terrain when the radar needs to be relocated.

The very quick loading and off-loading is made possible due to no need for a palette or other carrier.
