The Bamse system is one of few systems in the world today that is developed and optimised as a dedicated Ground-Based Air Defence (GBAD) missile system. BAMSE is designed for flexible usage both for stand-alone operation as well as in networks with other sensors and weapon systems.
The philosophy is to optimise system effect by having a number of fully coordinated firing units that together create a ground coverage for the
system of more than 2,100 Km2 and an effective altitude coverage of 15,000 m.
The BAMSE system has excellent built-in ECCM capabilities both in the GIRAFFE AMB surveillance radar and the unique monopulse Fire Control
Radar (FCR) Automatic Command to Line Of Sight (ACLOS) missile guidance function.
