Missle System, RBS70
y The RBS 70 man-portable airdefence missile system has acquired a first-class reputation based on its outstanding performance, unique unjammable laser-guided missile. y The system has been designed to be easy to use requires minimum personnel and logistic support, enabling it to be deployed and redeployed quickly and to have minimised reaction time. Air defence does not necessarily mean large semistationary installations.
25

Missle System, RBS70
y Developed to supply; y Low-cost y Easy to use y Effective short-range SAM(Surface to Air Missile) system. y Mobility ( Swedish army s strategy need ) y Low maintenance ( Swedish army s strategy need ) y Impossible to jam y Growth potential to night capability

: >90 % in the head on sector. : Ericsson PS-70R Giraffe

G/H-band radar. Emplace/displace time..: 1 min Sight : 35 kg Stand ..: 25 kg Missile : 26.5 kg

28

Technical features
y The operator receives instructions on the position of

the target from a local SLT (combat-control terminal) which is about the size of a laptop. y The SLT in turn receives information through an encoded radio broadcast made by either a radar station or some other information gathering source.

29

Technical features
y When the target has been acquired by the operator he

turns off the safety, which switches on the main laser and sends out an IFF(IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) signal.
y If positive makes firing impossible.

y If the operator is confident that he has a good track he

fires.

y The missile then flies in the beam of the laser from

the sight, adjusting its position constantly to stay within the beam.

Development of the missile of RBS 70
y RBS 70 has been constantly updated and improved y The first versions (Mk 0) had a short range and limited kill capabilities. y Mk 1 and Mk 2 followed shortly y The latest development is the BOLIDE system. y The BOLIDE missile is an RBS 70 Mk 2 upgrade that is faster. y The BOLIDE has also a new warhead, which is ashaped charge with a pre-fragmented jacket. y The adaptable proximity fuse gives it full effectiveness against a wider variety of targets. y New reprogrammable electronics gives it the possibility to engage attack cruise missiles.
33

Megatrends of RBS70
Technologies in RBS 70
y Propellant booster motor developed by Bofors. y Propellant sustainer motor by BAE Systems. y COND (Clip-On Night Device) by Bofors. (8 micron to 12 micron infrared band) y QWIP (Quantum Well Infrared Photodetector) thermal imaging technology by Saab Bofors. y Ericsson PS-70R Giraffe G/H-band radar.

"A hostile target can be located visually by the RBS 70 missile operator or the target can be detected by a search radar."
34

TLC of RBS
y Low cost, love mainenance cost, mobility, radar

technologies, laser beam riding missile and other high-tech systems gives RBS 70 long life missile system. y Cost-effective life-cycle support solutions. y After heat-seeking missile, RBS 70 s laser beam riding missile is the newest technology in its segment. y We can t say a certain years of TLC but seems pretty long

Global competition
y Mistral Air Defense Missile System, France y Saab Microwave System supported. y Contact fuse and laser proximity fuse y Patriot Missile Air Defense System, USA y Has bigger war head y Contact fuse and laser proximity fuse ( Saab bofor cooperated) y Almost all systems upgraded in same direction after

Germans invented it at the end of WWII and just some of them like RBS 70 and main competitor Patriot Missile system came forward.

38

Conclusion
y Countries have developed their army with the new

innovations to find solutions according to military needs or new upgrades to make their military staff more effective and efficent by the end of WWII. y Since Sweden is the most innovative country in EU they put the same performance in Millitary side of innovation and the future of swedish science seems bright with the help of private organizations like Saab Bofor
