Saab has offered the GlobalEye to NATO for its competition to buy new generation of surveillance planes.
In an official release on Feb. 21, Saab said it responded to a Request for Information (RFI) from NATO’s Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) regarding a new generation of surveillance and control capabilities.
NATO will define its new generation capability within the Alliance Future Surveillance and Control (AFSC) project.
GlobalEye is a multi-domain Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) solution with an array of active and passive sensors that provide long-range detection and identification of objects in air, at sea and over land. By providing real-time information to units in air forces, armies and navies, GlobalEye enables enhanced situational awareness of the surrounding areas and early detection of threats. It can also be used for non-military tasks such as leading and coordinating rescue missions during natural disasters or larger accidents at sea or on land.
