Saab delivered the first GlobalEye Swing Role Surveillance System to the United Arab Emirates today with two more to follow under the initial contract signed in late 2015, while the country also announced its intention to complete a contract amendment for the purchase of an additional two systems in November last year.

“The delivery of the first GlobalEye is a major milestone for Saab, but also an important step in the history of airborne early warning and control. We have set a new standard for the market and I am proud to say that we have delivered the most advanced airborne surveillance solution in the world to the United Arab Emirates”, says Micael Johansson, President and CEO of Saab.

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