Introduced in 1999, the Saab Giraffe AMB (agile multi-beam) 3D radar has become one of the world’s leading multirole air defense radars. Derived from the earlier G40 and G75 mechanically scanned radars, the AMB has an active electronically scanned antenna that provides a range of around 75 miles and altitude capability of more than 60,000 feet. The antenna rotates once every second to provide full 360-degree coverage, and in its current version provides detection from surface level up to an elevation of 70 degrees.

Last year the production version of the Saab BAMSE (Bofors advanced missile system evaluation) entered service with the Swedish armed forces and now the company is promoting the air defense system for export.
