UAE to order additional GlobalEye
Saab has announced that the United Arab intends to conclude a contract amendment for the purchase of two additional GlobalEye Airborne Early Warning & Control aircraft.
According to the announcement, the potential order value would be $1.018 billion, although Saab is yet to sign the contract amendment or receive an order.
The original development and production contract for GlobalEye was awarded to Saab in November 2015 by the United Arab Emirates with an initial order for two systems. An additional order by the UAE for a third system was announced in 2017.
GlobalEye provides air, maritime and ground surveillance in a single solution. It combines a new extended range radar with the ultra-long range Global 6000jet aircraft from Bombardier.
