30 September 2020 – Saab delivers the second GlobalEye Swing Role Surveillance System to the United Arab Emirates on 30 September 2020.
This follows Saab’s delivery of the first GlobalEye aircraft in April 2020 to the United Arab Emirates, which has ordered three GlobalEye aircraft. The initial contract was signed in late 2015.
“Completing the second GlobalEye
delivery in five months is a testament to Saab’s in-house expertise as aircraft
manufacturer, sensor provider and large system integrator. I am proud to
contribute to the United Arab Emirates’ airborne surveillance capability with
GlobalEye, which is the most advanced solution of its kind”, says Micael
Johansson, President and CEO of Saab.
GlobalEye is Saab’s new airborne early warning and control solution. It provides air, maritime and ground surveillance in a single solution. GlobalEye combines Saab’s new Erieye Extended Range Radar and a range of additional advanced sensors with the ultra-long range Global 6000 aircraft from Bombardier.
