Multinational aerospace firm Embraer has announced the delivery of two upgraded SABER M60 radars to the Brazilian Army.
Often attached to a low-altitude anti-aircraft defense system, the M60 radar is used to protect critical military infrastructure, including bases, command posts, and weapons storage.
It can track up to 60 targets simultaneously at a range of 59 kilometers (37 miles) and an altitude of 16,400 feet (5 kilometers).
Additionally, the SABER radar can be reconfigured to suit various missile-based weapon systems, anti-aircraft cannons, and other air defense systems available in the Brazilian military.
According to Embraer, the system features a low probability interception technology that allows it to track enemies without being easily identified.
It is also easy to transport and can be assembled in 15 minutes.
“Acquiring the SABER M60 radars is part of the 2020-2023 Brazilian Army Strategic Planning and expands the Land Forces’ operational capacity,” the company stated.
