Today, electronic warfare has grown by leaps and bounds since the days when radio communication was simply disruptive. Today it is also about perceiving and seeing first, deceiving and even controlling the entire electromagnetic spectrum.
“Today’s hotly contested battlefield requires superior electronic warfare capabilities. The Indian Air Force can also benefit from the next generation EW solution that gives pilots a head start on information. Knowing first is the key to successfully meeting today’s and tomorrow’s threats,” said Saabs. sales and marketing manager KentÅke Molin.
When Saab set out to create the smartest modern air force, they aimed for something that was a complete package. The result was Arexis, an EW sequel that offers unmatched survivability, superior situational awareness, freedom of action and a safe return home. The EW Suite is fully integrated on all Gripen aircraft, giving pilots an autonomous ability to operate without the need for an escort from a specialized EW aircraft. It can also be installed on any other type of aircraft, in a missioned pod or even used with an unmanned vehicle, Arexis offers both defensive and offensive features including neutralization of Anti Access Bubble / Area Denial (A2 / AD).
Powered by Active Electronically Scanned Gallium Nitride (GaN) arrays (AESA) and fully digitized receivers, Arexis delivers superior situational awareness in every scenario. Saab also offered India’s radar technology AESA GaN. “If India so requests, Saab is willing to share its GaN technology knowledge not only for the Gripen program but also for ongoing and future local programs such as LCA and AMCA,” adds Kent-Åke.
One of the most important reasons for Arexi’s reliability is its unique ability to handle and digitize a wide range and a large number of signals and sensor data with extreme speed and precision. Digitization is very important due to the large number of signals that must be processed by today’s systems. frequency transmitter signals, no matter how many, and draw quick conclusions. Arexis gives the pilot a complete threat picture over the entire electromagnetic spectrum.
The result is improved situational awareness that helps the pilot see first and act first. Modern air forces such as the IAF need this revolutionary capability to ensure the success of the mission, “says Kent-Åke.
