Saab Defence : Giraffe 1X
Saab Defence wanted a clear visual identity to promote their compact, lightweight and high performing 3D Giraffe 1X radar. Eker Design together with Saab Defence reworked the body and chassis of the antenna to make use of composites possible. Composite exterior gives the obvious advantage of design freedom over sheet metal counterparts. It also resulted in simplified structure, reduced amount of parts and better serviceability. The smooth and curved GRP surfaces reduce visual signature and wind load. In addition, we have designed, developed and produced a demo unit to be used for show cases and done renderings for marketing purposes.
