Air-to-Air Missile Systems

Saab is an industrial partner in the two leading air-to-air missile programmes in Europe, i.e. the BVRAAM Meteor and the SRAAM IRIS-T. Both missiles are designed to meet European requirements and are fully compatible with the Gripen and other contemporary aircraft.

Meteor’s ramjet propulsion system provides the long stand-off range and the combination of both proximity and impact fuzes provides a high-kill probability to ensure air superiority and pilot survivability.

IRIS-T is highly agile owing to thrust control in a tail-controlled airframe. It carries a roll-pitch imaging ir seeker with a ± 90-degree look angle and advanced signal processing for great acquisition ranges and high resistance to countermeasures. The missile-launcher interface is compatible with both the previous analogue Sidewinder interface and the digital interfaces of modern fighter aircraft.
