Description
The RBS 70 NG is a man-portable air-defense system designed and manufactured by the Swedish Company SAAB. The RBS 70 NG is based on the RBS 70 with new-generation sighting system, high precision, unbeatable range and unjammable laser guidance. The RBS 70 NG was presented for the first time to the public during the DSEI defense exhibition in September 2011, London, United Kingdom. Now with integrated 24/7 all-target capability Saab's new RBS 70 NG VSHORAD system has been developed for any combat situation. Its integrated sighting solution, enhanced missile operator aids, unmatched range and unjammable laser guidance combine to produce a system with world-leading capabilities. The NG sight is software-based. New functions like the auto tracker and visual cueing have ultimately resulted in ease of use and increased precision for both small and large targets, even at maximum range.

Launch unit
The basic RBS 70 NG (New Generation) comprises the missile in a launch container, a tripod firing stand and an NG sight. It is operable by one, and portable by three persons.
Missile
The RBS 70 NG uses the new BOLIDE missile which can defeat a wide range of targets, including ground and surface targets. BOLIDE has an intercept range of 8,000 m and altitude coverage of more than 5 000 m. The modular design allows the RBS 70 NG to reuse all existing generations of RBS 70 missiles up to the new BOLIDE 4th generation all-target VSHORAD missile. With the BOLIDE missile the RBS 70 NG provides high effect against the complete threat spectrum from F/W and R/W Aircraft down to small targets such as cruise missiles and UAVs, out to a range of 8 km and with altitude coverage in excess of 5 000 m. The combined shaped-charge and prefragmented warhead makes the system uniquely capable of defeating armoured air targets such as attack helicopters and CAS aircraft as well as armoured ground targets like APCs.
Sight
The NG sight is a compact integrated guidance unit with integrated Thermal Imager, built-in auto-tracker and advanced visual cueing aids. The NG sight has been specifically designed for a high degree of flexibility and modularity: In addition to the Man-Portable Air Defence System (MANPADS) configuration, the same NG sight unit can also be alternately applied in remotely controlled and vehicle applications. The modular design of the NG sight and the vehicle platform allows for integration into an almost unlimited number of vehicle types and for network integration and remote control. The RBS 70 NG sight enhances the capability of the BOLIDE missile by reducing the tracking noise through the implementation of an auto-tracker function. Less noise will result in even higher maneuverability and higher p-kill than in the present RBS 70 system against small targets at maximum range.
Operations
The RBS 70 NG is specifically designed to allow for highly flexible deployment options, where the same individual sight may be alternately applied as a man-portable air defence system (MANPADS) and/or as a vehicle integrated air defence system. The integrated thermal imager and night sight capability combine to provide true 24/7 performance. Three dimensional target designation and automatic target detection improve reaction times, while the auto-tracker aids the missile operator during engagement, increasing hit probability throughout the missile range. The system may also be deployed in a fully remote control configuration for long term stationary air defence missions.
Combat use
True All-target capability With the latest generation of missile - the BOLIDE - the RBS 70 NG is directed at the complete air and ground threat spectrum, including long range and close to ground. Everything from fixed and rotary wing aircraft and helicopters down to small targets such as cruise missiles, UAVs and armoured ground targets like AFCs can be engaged. The RBS 70 NG has an effective intercept range of 8 km, with altitude coverage in excess of 5,000 m, making it a best-in-class air defence missile system. It is capable of operating in complex environments such as urban terrain and is well equipped for all environments, including tropical, desert and arctic conditions.
