Saab’s uniquely effective Ground Based Air Defence

Saab's state-of-the-art Ground Based Air Defence Missile Systems, RBS70 and BAMSE, offer Brazil and other nations the most effective solution for protection of civil infrastructure as well as national air-space.

The unique features of the system, being unjammable and offering extremely short reaction/reloading time, makes it the ideal solution for protection of large events like the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2014 and the Olympic Games 2016.

The need for securing the national air-space is certainly a vital part on every nations security agenda. The need for protection against aggression from other nations has historically been the basis for this need. Today, in a world changing towards increased threats from asymmetric threats like terrorist attacks the focus has to be widened. Today, not only terrorist attacks from the ground have to be dealt with. Also terrorist attacks from the air to large events are a risk that has to be calculated with and handled.

RBS70 and BAMSE: Unmatched capabilities

The unique features of the RBS70 and the BAMSE systems are unmatched on the market today. The features include unjammable systems with down to ground engagement capability as well as the man in the loop with the possibility to destroy the missile all the way until target intercept.

For protection of vital infrastructure the RBS70 can be deployed on e.g. rooftops and engage targets without being affected by any other features in the surrounding terrain unlike IR systems that will be affected by different heat-sources like air conditioning units and fans. RBS70 have longer range, 8 km, than any other SHORAD system on the market even against incoming small targets. In addition the reaction times and time for reloading for both the BAMSE and the RBS70 are shorter than for any other systems in there respective classes (MRADS and SHORADS).

Fore more information on the systems, please visit the Saab stand at LAAD, where we also offer the possibility to try out the RBS70 system live in the simulator.
