SAAB Delivers CBRN Warning System to Kuwait

Saab has delivered Automatic Warning and Reporting (AWR) system to a customer in Kuwait for the detection, identification, warning, monitoring and reporting of Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) hazards.

The system, which is a flexible, modular and future-proof solution, can be operated from fixed locations, carried by personnel or mounted on vehicles, the company announced today.

Saab’s AWR uses integrated hardware and software to provide early warnings to units and personnel on the battlefield. The system helps the operator to make fast and accurate decisions, which is a key factor in limiting exposure to CBRN threats.

Kuwait has taken delivery of a CBRN AWR system with units for mobile detection and surveillance plus stationary detection units to provide complete chemical and radiological surveillance.

The system includes a command and control centre, which monitors the entire system 24-hours-a-day. Saab´s 9LAND BMS AWR command and control software is part of the tactical system.

If activated by a CBRN situation, an automatic hand-over is made from the stationary system to the mobile, tactical system with round-the-clock operations.

The mobile units include pressure-protected light vehicles where the full picture from data collected the AWR system is displayed on Saab´s rugged hardware. The vehicles are also camouflaged and protected with Barracuda´s HTR system for heat reduction.

“A new international customer validates that Saab´s CBRN solutions are in the front-line on the market, and that we are breaking new ground.

“There is a trend developing within the CBRN area for countries to move away from stand-alone solutions to properly integrated CBRN systems and vehicles,” said Nils Erik Lindblom, director marketing and sales at business unit Land, within Saab business area Support and Services.
