Saab 2000 AIRTRACER
The Saab 2000 AIRTRACER is an airborne SIGINT system for utilising data received by onboard ELINT and COMINT sensors. All information collected by the sensors can easily be administered via the mission system and be analysed in real time or at a later date - onboard the aircraft or back at base. AIRTRACER offers ELINT and COMINT in one platform. The advanced mission system provides geo-location of both signals in real time.
The Saab 2000 AIRTRACER utilises sensitive antenna systems using the latest receiver technology and selective processing techniques, which establish emitter location of radar and communications signals even in a dense electronic environment. The rapid detection and geo-location of signals combined with real-time analysis allows for quick action to be taken.
