The following extended capabilities for the SEA GIRAFFE AMB baseline product configuration are available:
- Stealth Radome
- 360˚ mortar/rocket alert and weapon location
- Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) interrogator antenna
- IFF interrogator
- Improved detection range and redundancy with an additional Transmitter Unit
The Stealth Radome is built with Frequency Selective Surfaces (FSS) to minimise the Radar Cross Section (RCS) and infrared signature of the above-deck parts of the SEA GIRAFFE AMB. The radome is capable of carrying equipment on the top, for example an ESM, ELINT and/or a COMINT. The Counter Rocket, Artillery and Mortar alert and weapon location function detects, tracks and classifies very small ballistic objects in severe clutter. The firing position, the ballistic trajectory as well as the impact position are calculated. A warning signal is given well in advance of impact with other units or to own ship, allowing the ship to perform an evasive manoeuvre in order to avoid being hit.
ILS is an important part of the system delivery and will form the basis for future maintenance. Saab ILS experts have solid experience in tailoring ILS deliveries together with customers worldwide. The superior, unsurpassed system availability (with high MTBCF and advanced BIT) provided by SEA GIRAFFE AMB will greatly reduce the required investment in onboard and depot spares. Minimal operator training and maintenance requirements will significantly contribute to minimising the total cost of ownership.
