Saab offers Satellite-based Big Data Solutions for Defence Applications

Saab is offering a big data solution based on merging information from satellites, airborne surveillance platforms, ground based radar and battle-management system to generate simultaneous reports for various users.

The new solution will allow fusion of satellite data with other products, including Saab’s airborne surveillance solution GlobalEye, the Giraffe family of surface radar and the 9LV combat management system. It will allow users to compare big data from a wide range of sources simultaneously. Saab is also developing its existing radar technology offer to include satellite- space debris and intercontinental ballistic missile surveillance.

“With tensions growing around us we see an increasing demand for more comprehensive situational awareness. We are now developing a platform that allows fusion of satellite data from space with our existing products”, says Anders Carp, Senior Vice President and Head of Saab’s Business Area Surveillance.

Space solutions can support existing military technology and improve accuracy in determining time and location. It can also be used for surveillance, early warning and to detect what others are doing in space.

“Analyses of how movement patterns change over time can be used not only for military purposes but also for other things, such as tracking iceberg movements in the Arctic to prevent ships colliding with them or protecting societies by tracking how wildfires are spreading”, says Anders Carp.
