Defence and security company Saab has been selected by Swedavia, the state-owned company that owns and operates Sweden’s airport infrastructure, to deliver three SR-3 Surface Movement Radars at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.
Saab’s latest generation SR-3 Surface Movement Radars increase airport security by detection of non-cooperative targets including aircraft, ground vehicles, and other obstacles. They will be used to replace three aging radars at Arlanda Airport. The SR-3 Surface Movement Radars deliver unparalleled situational awareness and safety in all weather conditions, and are designed for easy drop-in replacements of old radars.
“The Saab SR-3 Surface Movement Radar was selected based on the competitive pricing. Saab will replace our existing radars quickly, with limited downtime, starting this summer. The SR-3 technology will give Arlanda better performance during low visibility,” said Bo Hedman at Swedavia.
Saab has over ten years of experience fielding solid-state radars and has employed an open architecture design for the SR-3. This fully redundant design and small number of line replaceable units delivers high reliability, low maintenance, and low life cycle costs. In addition, the small indoor/outdoor transceiver cabinet means greater site flexibility and lower installation costs.
“Thanks to its design and flexibility we can provide Swedavia with new surface movement radars that utilize interfaces for easy integration into existing or new air traffic control systems, says Anders Carp, head of business unit Saab Traffic Management within business area Surveillance.
Saab provides Air Traffic Management solutions for civil aviation, airport and airline customers in more than 40 countries across six continents.
