Two Philippine Navy frigates will have the Saab Sea Giraffe AMB naval radar systems installed, after the US agreed to export the system under a foreign military sale (FMS).

The Sea Giraffe AMB (designated as AN/SPS-77 by the US Navy) will be installed on the BRP Gregorio del Pilar (FF-15) and BRP Ramon Alcaraz (FF-16), both former US Coast Guard Hamilton Class cutters. The sale also includes Saab’s 9LV for radar control and display for enhanced situational awareness.

Sea Giraffe AMB offers 3D, multi-role, medium-range air and surface surveillance.

"With Sea Giraffe AMB currently part of three separate US Navy programs, this contract further strengthens Saab’s position as a trusted supplier for the US Navy. We are proud that our world-class naval radar meets the USN’s standards and needs," said Anders Carp, head of Saab business area surveillance.
