9LV FCS Addresses Advanced Sea-Skimming Missiles Threat
Saab has received an order for its 9LV fire control systems (FCS) for installation on the Norwegian Coast Guard’s new JAN MAYEN-class vessels, the company announced on 18 February.
VARD Group, which is building the vessels with first delivery scheduled for 2022, contracted Saab to provide the system, “which meets Norway’s requirements for high precision, availability and quality,” according to the head of Saab’s surveillance business unit, Anders Carp.
The 9LV FCS is used to detect, monitor and combat hostile entities, providing rapid and reliable defence against a wide variety of threats in any environment, including advanced sea-skimming missiles and asymmetric surface threats. One of the core components, CEROS 200, is based on radar and optronic technology which gives the system very high precision in all weather conditions. It is used on more than 200 ships around the world.
