BACKGROUND

INNOVATION – IT'S IN OUR BLOOD

The RBS 70 NG is not just a missile system: it’s the expertise and dedication of a team with more than 50 years missile development and production experience. Their creativity and ingenuity has created a world-leading air-defence system.

How it all began

RBS70 development studies started over 40 years ago. By 1978 Generation 1 was in service. With an effective intercept range against incoming targets of 5 kilometres, and altitude coverage of more than 2,000 metres, it was a unique product. Its unjammable guidance with laser beam riding missile was one of the first military laser applications and ensured it could perform in cluttered environments.

1982 saw the second generation RBS 70 developed with increased area coverage and by 1990, the third generation was introduced. The Mk II missile, Clip-On Night Device (COND) and Battlefield Management Terminal set it apart from earlier versions as well as from the enemy.

In 2003, the fourth generation presented a major capability enhancement, entering the digital era with non-cooled laser diodes (No Freon), the BOLIDE all-target missile, BORC Thermal Imager, Digital IFF Interrogator, Target Data Receiver, PC-based Weapon Simulator and external power supply.

A new generation

Today, the new generation RBS 70 has gone one step further. The new-generation sighting system, high precision, unbeatable range and unjammable laser guidance combine to produce a VSHORAD ground-based air-defence system with world-leading capabilities. 

 

The RBS 70 NG VSHORAD system is the result of decades of experience, creating a system with world-leading capabilities.
