Saab unveils Sirius Compact, a lightweight passive electronic warfare sensor
Saab has unveiled Sirius Compact, a passive, lightweight electronic warfare sensor to meet surveillance challenges across all levels of tactical operations by locating threats while remaining undetected.
Sirius Compact is a compact, flexible solution that provides new capabilities and advantages compared to corresponding solutions that are both larger and more static in terms of grouping. The system can be easily installed on a wide variety of platforms – such as drones, vehicles, vessels, masts, or man-portable applications – or quickly deployed by a single soldier to form scalable detector networks where the sensors can stealthily detect incoming threats by their electronic signatures.
The passive electronic warfare sensor is modular and scalable and can be used as a stand-alone sensor, in a network of sensors, or as a complement to existing sensors. Through silent detection, classification, and prioritization of radar and datalink emissions, the system broadens the sensing…
