Saab has selected the SKYWARD-G Infrared Search and Track (IRST) system manufactured by SELEX Galileo for its Gripen NG fighter.
The IRST allows a pilot to passively search for enemy aircraft in the infrared spectrum, and can be slaved to an aircraft’s radar. The Gripen NG will also likely employ SELEX Galileo’s Raven ES-05 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar.
The enhanced Gripen NG is currently under development and has been offered in fighter competitions in India, Brazil and Denmark.
