Saab to deliver third GlobalEye to Sweden

Saab has signed a contract with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) regarding delivery of a third GlobalEye airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft to Sweden in a deal worth SEK 2.6 billion (USD 224 million).

The order is based on an option included in Saab’s contract with FMV from June 2022, which included two GlobalEye aircraft, as well as options to procure two additional aircraft. The GlobalEye has the Swedish designation S 106.

“We are proud to contribute to Sweden’s defence with another GlobalEye aircraft, which will provide unique situational awareness of the surroundings as well the capability of early detection and warning of potential threats in the air, at sea or on land,” says Micael Johansson, President and CEO of Saab. 

GlobalEye is an advanced multi-domain AEW&C solution with an array of active and passive sensors that provide long-range detection and identification of objects in the 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.
