This follows Saab’s previous deliveries of GlobalEye in April and September 2020. The United Arab Emirates has ordered a total of five GlobalEye aircraft.

“Completing three deliveries of a solution as advanced as GlobalEye in less than a year proves Saab’s solid expertise as a provider of high-technology solutions and our focus on meeting our commitments, especially given the current circumstances. By handling the entire process, including sensor development and integration, we are uniquely in control of every critical part of this complex programme”, says Micael Johansson, President and CEO of Saab.

GlobalEye is Saab’s latest airborne early warning and control solution. It provides exceptional air, maritime and ground surveillance in a single platform. GlobalEye combines Saab’s Erieye Extended Range Radar and a range of additional advanced sensors with the ultra-long range Global 6000 aircraft from Bombardier.

GlobalEye is a multi-role airborne early warning & control (AEW&C) aircraft manufactured by the Swedish defense and security company Saab. GlobalEye consists of a suite of sensors using Saab's Erieye ER (Extended Range) radar and mission system, installed in the Bombardier Global 6000 long-range business jet. With its mix of modern active and passive sensors, it provides long-range detection and identification of objects in the air, at sea, and over land.

GlobalEye is equipped with an advanced self-protection system based on the latest technology developed by Saab. The self-protection system integrates a suite of sensors and countermeasures dispensers. The autonomously operated system can also be controlled by the pilot.
