Aerospace Forum Sweden 2012: Hellenic Air Force outlines Libyan Erieye operations

1st June 2012 - 09:52 GMT | by Tony Osborne in Linkoping, Sweden


The Hellenic Air Force (HAF) has revealed how its Erieye early warning radar system played a key role during NATO's Unified Protector operations in Libya.

The air arm provided one of its four Embraer EMB-145H AEW&C aircraft equipped with the Saab-designed Erieye radar system to the operations providing radar in 'Joint Operating Area East' - an area nicknamed 'Carlsberg'.

This meant the Erieye watched over and controlled the airspace over the Eastern towns of Benghazi, Sirte and Misrata – towns which were seen as critical at the beginning of the air campaign as it supported anti-Gadaffi forces.
