SAAB presents an aircraft for reconnaissance - especially for the Middle East. This is a GlobalEye integrated observation aircraft with the possibility of early warning and multipurpose monitoring. Presented the first aircraft of the three, which are ordered by the United Arab Emirates.


The presentation of the aircraft took place today at an industrial facility in Linköping, Sweden.

SAAB presented an integrated observation aircraft GlobalEye for the UAE


The contract with the UAE at SAAB was concluded in the 2015 year, and in the 2016 year they decided to order another aircraft of this type.

In fact, GlobalEye is a military modification of the Bombardier Global 6000 business aircraft. The aircraft is equipped with a complex of radar and sensors monitoring the situation. The basis for complex surveillance is the Erieye Extended Range radar, which implements technologies using gallium nitride (GaN). The use of this compound is due to its increased resistance to temperature effects and voltage drops. Radar based on gallium nitride elements allows to increase the detection radius.

The plane also installed Flir Systems optical sensor and Leonardo search radar.

The combination of all these radio and optoelectronic components will allow the new aircraft, which the United Arab Emirates buys, to significantly surpass their counterparts based on the earlier Erieye system, which is used in Saudi Arabia, Greece, Brazil and Sweden itself.

    Just the same, "cuckold" some kind. However, the appearance for such aircraft is not important. The main filling.

      Right If for the UAE, then the steering wheel is exactly made of gold. laughing

        I’m reading such material, but it doesn’t fit in my head that with this arms race the whole world has gone crazy.
        Nerds, rats and a cockroach will defeat in the next military disaster ...
        Truly, the greed of the fraer has ruined.
        I don’t feel sorry for humanity — one dirty trick about it on Earth.
        I feel sorry for Mother Nature, which was occupied by a "highly developed" bug called man.

        The correct filling in such airplanes is a hundred times more expensive than a platinum helm.

    Yes, the windage at the antenna is very large. Sitting in a crosswind will be very difficult.
    Well, AFAR on gallium nitride is good. We also do these ... Only Tsc-ss ... bully

      Well, they put on the side of the fuselage. But not on the "roof".

      You, where is it?
      We have not even a single production, even on gallium arsenide, was not even experienced.
      And to nitrile - the crayfish will whistle ...

      You think that with the "mushroom" on the fuselage is easier? But they fly and land.

    We need a version based on a superjet! Or another short-range aircraft.

      Is the Tu204 suitable? Already there. And why do we need a short-haul? Circling from Bryansk to Rostov? Although this is necessary.

        They will not give their Gulfstream 550 Aitam, which in my opinion is better for the location of the antennas. But Singapore and the Italians bought it.

      Do you think that someone gives them nothing for nothing? It is the Yankees who, practically, provide everyone with a freebie, if only you had them on a short leash. After all, they always write: "America handed over the party to Israel ..."

    A radar based on elements made of gallium nitride allows to increase the detection radius.
    And what is this "beast"?
    In general, “Big Brother” - the more you put these highly technological things to the vassals (having also received “grandmothers” for this), the greater the opportunity to “look” with these eyes from different parts of the earth. The vassals will still not guess ...

    Saber dancing is better for them. Well, they would dance, no, after all, they grab onto something else.
