The Saab Gripen Next Generation flight proving and demonstration programme has received critical support from the Selex-built Raven 1000P.

Raven 1000P is the prototype of Selex’s Raven ES-05 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar.

Raven ES-05, a high-performance, premium fire control radar, has higher reliability than mechanically scanned radars.

As part of the programme, Selex and Saab demonstrated radar modes in flight and integrated radar into the weapon system, proving real capability in very short timescales.

In the air-to-ground capability, Raven 1000P produced excellent medium and high-resolution SAR imagery at long range.

Selex Galileo was awarded the contract by Saab to supply two key sensors, the Raven ES-05 and the infrared search and track (IRST) system SKYWARD-G for the programme.

Saab will use the Raven ES-05 and the IRST to guarantee full mission effectiveness of the next-generation aircraft.
