Saab has received a $39 million order from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for additional functionality for the GlobalEye advanced airborne early warning and control system, the company announced on 18 June.

GlobalEye, ordered by the UAE in 2015, features a full suite of sensors including the new extended range radar, Erieye ER, providing air, maritime and ground surveillance in a single platform.

GlobalEye has been designed to perform multiple roles including tracking and long-range detection SAR, border surveillance and military operations.

Anders Carp, head of Saab business area surveillance, said: ‘GlobalEye is the most advanced airborne early warning and control solution on the market and the programme is progressing very well, with the first flight completed in March this year. This order is further testament to our successful collaboration with the UAE.’
