ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates. Lockheed Martin, Diehl Defence, and Saab officials announced the Falcon air defense weapon system as the short and medium-range air defense solution for current and emerging threats.
Falcon integrates Diehl's 40-kilometer range Infra-Red Imaging System Tail/Thrust Vector-Controlled (IRIS-T) SLM interceptor and vertical launcher, Saab's 360-degree AESA Giraffe 4A radar through Lockheed Martin's flexible SkyKeeper command and control battle manager. Falcon's open architecture allows the system to easily integrate into any air operations center.
