Saab has launched a deployable variant of its Giraffe 1X 3D radar at DSEI 2023, held from 12 to 15 September in London.
Known as the Deployable Set, the new configuration is designed as a compact, robust, and highly deployable radar that can be easily transported and quickly set up.
A key difference with the deployable variant is its ability to operate on the move when deployed on naval vessels or land vehicles, while maintaining the same radar performance as the original system, Fredrik Sämfors, head of

The UK has already acquired the radar, although he was unable to detail the number of units procured.
