Saab receives order for Arexis EW sensor suite for German Eurofighters

Saab has received an order from Airbus Defence and Space for the Arexis (Electronic Warfare) EW sensor suite. The contract period is 2024-2026.

Notably, the German defence procurement office announced in June 2023 that it had selected Saab’s Arexis sensor suite for the Eurofighter EK, an EW variant of the German Air Force’s Eurofighter aircraft.

Worth mentioning that this order marks the start of the first phase of Saab’s delivery of Arexis EW sensor suite within this programme. 

Saab received the order from Airbus, which will equip 15 of the German Air Force’s Eurofighters for EW missions with solutions including Saab’s Arexis.

These aircraft will replace the German Air Force’s Tornado ECR, which are set to be decommissioned from 2030.

Saab will be supported by its strategic AI partner Helsing and the Arexis suite will feature Helsing’s AI platform. Arexis enables the user to detect, locate and identify radar emitters in complex and congested electromagnetic environments. 

Noteworthy, Arexis is a proven EW suite for combat aircraft featuring latest sensor and self-protection capabilities. It is modular and can be adapted to almost any modern platform.
