Saab to Continue Support for Australian GBAD and C-RAM

€17.2 Million Contract Covers Systems Through 2022

The Australian Army has awarded Saab a contract, valued at SEK 164 million (€17.2 million) to extend their support of Ground Based Air Defence (GBAD) and Counter Rocket, Artillery and Mortar (C-RAM) systems until 2022. This ensures availability and effectiveness of these important capabilities, fielded by 16th Regt, Royal Australian Artillery.

Under the contract, Saab will provide support for the range of systems forming the GBAD and CRAM solutions, including the GIRAFFE Agile Multi-Beam (AMB) radars and RBS-70 very short-range air defence (VSHORAD) weapon system.

Long-term, top-class support is key to our offer and we look forward to continuing to help strengthen Australia’s GBAD and C-RAM capability with our expertise in complex integrated systems,” stated the head of Saab’s surveillance business area, Anders Carp.

The support programme will include the Mode 5 identification friend or foe (IFF) capability that has been recently integrated by Saab Australia into the RBS 70 system, including the RBS-70 missile firing posts, TaCCS and GIRAFFE AMB radar. This capability ensures the Australian Army’s air defence system is able to deploy in a coalition environment and significantly reduces the risk of misidentification of aircraft.
