On any vehicle
ASRAD-R is a platform-mounted air-defence system, for integration with almost any wheeled or tracked fighting vehicle. The weapon platform, which can be remotely controlled at distances of up to 100 m, can also be containerised or pallet mounted.
The complete platform can be folded and lowered into the vehicle during transport. In the folded transport position the platform, which in some applications almost approaches stealth protection, can be protected against fragments. The low profile of the vehicle and folded platform allows ASRAD-R to be carried by most transport aircraft.
An ASRAD-R unit can be deployed and ready for missile launch a few seconds after quickly coming to a halt. Each firing unit is equipped with four ready-to-fire missiles and is completely reloaded in < 1 min.
Radar and sight
Each ASRAD-R unit is equipped with Saab's HARD radar. This ensures correct designation, short reaction times and very high redundancy at the lowest level.
In a fully autonomous fire unit, a radar with an integrated IFF system, or an IRST, is mounted on the top. The radar can also be installed on a separate vehicle to operate together with a number of fire units.
The gyro-stabilised sight is made up of a flexible sensor package with a thermal-imaging system and a laser-beam transmitter unit. Optional sensors are a TV camera and laser rangefinder.
Overcome all targets with BOLIDE
With the new BOLIDE missile, the ASRAD-R system can overcome all targets, including armoured ground targets.
