IDEX 2021: UAE takes delivery of third GlobalEye
The third GlobalEye AEW&C aircraft for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was delivered on 20 February 2021, following previous deliveries in April and September 2020.
GlobalEye provides simultaneous air, maritime and ground surveillance, by combining sophisticated technology (such as the the S-band Erieye Extended Range radar and mission system) with the ultra-long range Global 6000 aircraft from Bombardier.
Ground surveillance of moving vehicles can be conducted through long-range, wide-area ground moving target indication radar modes, according to Shephard Defence Insight.
The UAE originally ordered two GlobalEye aircraft from Saab in 2015, followed by one more in 2017.
The first aircraft was delivered to UAE Air Force in April 2020.
The UAE has since ordered two more GlobalEyes to be delivered by 2025.
‘By handling the entire process, including sensor development and integration, we are uniquely in control of every critical part of this complex programme,’ said Micael Johansson, president and CEO of Saab said on the eve of the IDEX defence exhibition in Abu Dhabi.
