Saab receives Korean order for weapon-locating system

Defence and security company Saab has received an order worth SEK450m (£43.3m), for weapon-locating system ARTHUR from LIG Nex1, which is the prime contractor towards Defence Acquisition Program Administration, in the Republic of Korea.

ARTHUR is a stand-alone C-band medium-range weapon-locating system that detects and locates enemy fire.

According to Saab, it utilises a passive phased-array antenna technology for optimised battlefield performance.

The technology is designed to provide a balance between mobility, range, accuracy, Electronic counter-counter measures (ECCM), operational availability and operational cost.
