The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) awarded Saab nearly$710 million (SEK 7.3 billion) for two GlobalEye Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) aircraft.

Saab will hand over the aircraft to Sweden in 2027. The contract also includes options that enable FMV to order up to two additional GlobalEye.

Saab’s GlobalEye features the Erieye Extended Range radar, which has a range of more than 550km, as well as a suite of advanced sensors and a command and control system integrated into the Global 6000 aircraft.

GlobalEye provides a strong early warning and control capability over air, sea and land, and can provide real-time information to units in the Air Force, Army and Navy. This enables situational awareness of the surrounding areas and early detection of threats. In addition to the military capability, GlobalEye can also be used for tasks supporting civilian society, for example by leading and coordinating rescue missions during natural disasters or larger accidents at sea or on land.
