Saab has announced that it has received an order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) for maintenance of the Erieye airborne radar system. The order, announced 5 June, 2012, has a value of SEK 125 million.

The Swedish Air Force has been an Erieye operator since 1997. The contract covers services for the Swedish Erieye-system (Airborne Surveillance and Control, ASC890) between 2012 and 2014; and will see Saab carry out work to provide technical support for the unit operations, and research and development for the ASC890 sensor and command and control system.

The sensor and command and control system provide access to a detailed situational awareness that can be used for a number of missions, including border surveillance, rescue operations and for tackling terrorism and organised crime.
