LCS 36 & 38 to be equipped with Saab's Sea Giraffe AMB naval radar

SYRACUSE, N.Y. U.S. General Dynamics officials selected Saab's Sea Giraffe AMB naval radar, designated AN/SPS-77, for installation on the U.S. Navy's Littoral Combat Ships LCS 36 and LCS 38.

Saab received the first order for Sea Giraffe AMB for the Littoral Combat Ships in 2005. Since that time, Saab has continuously developed the standard Giraffe AMB sensor to meet multiple missions in the U.S. sea services from open-ocean blue-water applications into the littorals.

Work under this contract will be performed in Syracuse, New York and Gothenburg, Sweden.
