GlobalEye 6000.jpg


Saab's latest AWAC, Global Eye based on a Bombardier Global6000 platform. Capable of Air, Land, and Sea, surveillance simultaneously.

UAE customer to receive first of Saab's GlobalEye
Posted 17 February 2016 · Add Comment

Defence and security company Saab has introduced its GlobalEye multi-role airborne surveillance system.

GlobalEye combines Saab’s all-new Erieye ER radar and mission system with the high-end Global 6000 jet aircraft from Bombardier. The launch customer for GlobalEye is the United Arab Emirates, which ordered the system as the Swing Role Surveillance System (SRSS), in November 2015.

For the first time on the market GlobalEye provides a sophisticated, high-performance system that can conduct simultaneous long-range detection, tracking and surveillance in the air, land and maritime domains, all from a single platform.

“With GlobalEye we expand and sharpen our offering, targeting customers looking to maximise their return on investment in extended AEW&C capabilities as a national asset to benefit their country,” said Micael Johansson, head of Saab’s business area Electronic Defence Systems.

The truly multi-role GlobalEye automatically detects and tracks air and surface targets over a huge area. Ground surveillance of moving vehicles can be conducted through long-range, wide-area ground moving target indication (GMTI) radar modes. With the Erieye ER radar, detection and tracking ranges have been significantly increased compared to existing airborne radars, and against the smallest targets. The GlobalEye system can track very low-observable air and sea targets, including ‘stealthy’ aircraft, cruise missiles or submarine periscopes, even in heavy clutter and jamming environments.

“GlobalEye is a game changer that delivers a unique swing-role capability for simultaneous air, maritime and ground surveillance in a single solution, with the ability to change role dynamically, while airborne during any mission,” said Johansson.

The GlobalEye integrates a comprehensive suite of sensors, including signals intelligence, and advanced self-protection equipment with a newly-developed command, control and communication system. Cost-effective system availability is assured through the combination of a small organisational footprint and Saab’s in-service support.

Saab is able to take the prime contractor role for this groundbreaking AEW&C system because of its decades of expertise and innovation in radar technology, but also through its detailed knowledge of electronic warfare, C4I solutions and systems and platform integration. A large proportion of GlobalEye’s sub systems are sourced from Saab’s world-leading product range.

A key element of the GlobalEye system is the Global 6000 ultra-long-range jet aircraft from Bombardier. This offers the latest avionics and combines ideal size for multi-role and extended AEW&C with outstanding performance. It is a high speed aircraft with impressive short field performance and low operating costs. Thanks to the Global 6000 platform GlobalEye mission endurance can extend up to 11 hours.

LINKOPING, Sweden — Saab has taken the wraps off a new surveillance aircraft destined to equip the United Arab Emirates with a powerful airborne early warning and control capability.

The Swedish company revealed the first of three GlobalEye aircraft it is developing and building for the UAE during a visit by reporters Feb. 23 to the Linköping facility where the work is underway.

The first flight of the aircraft is expected later this year.

The UAE ordered the first two GlobalEye jets in late 2015 and followed that up with an order for a third aircraft last year.

Saab is modifying Bombardier Global 6000 business jets with radars and other sensors to undertake AEW, maritime and ground surveillance. The heart of the capability is the new Erieye Extended Range radar employing‎ gallium nitride semi-conductor technology to help massively increase the detection range over earlier versions of the sensor .

Leonardo’s Seaspray maritime search radar and a Flir Systems electro optical sensor are also part of the package being installed on GlobalEye.

Analysts say GlobalEye will give the UAE unmatched AEW capability among Gulf Cooperation Council members‎. It will be the first application for the extended range version of the Erieye radar.

Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Thailand, Greece, Pakistan, Mexico and Sweden all currently use the earlier version of Erieye installed in either Saab turboprop or Embraer jet‎ aircraft.

The UAE also operate two Saab 340 turboprops equipped with the older version of the Erieye. It’s not clear what will happen to these aircraft once GlobalEye is fully operational.

The UAE is also adding to its airborne surveillance‎ capabilities in a separate program using Global 6000s.

British aerospace company Marshall’s is modifying two business jets for special missions work. The role of the aircraft has yet to be confirmed but the expectation is they will provide the UAE with a signals intelligence capabilities.

This retired Army lieutenant colonel got a pretty big promotion — in another country’s military

A retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel got a pretty big promotion after he went to work for the United Arab Emirates, where he now heads the nation’s Joint Aviation Command and National Search and Rescue Center as a major general.

Stephen Toumajan retired as an Army lieutenant colonel in 2007, according to a recent report by Buzzfeed.com.

At some point, he went to work for the UAE, and in a video posted on the Department of Defense’s photo and video sharing website, while with his UAE soldiers at the National Training Center in Fort Irwin, California, he says, “I am a major general for the United Arab Emirates.”

The US has been fighting Al-Qaeda before the operation in Yemen started. There is nothing new here except that it was made equivocally to the public.

That is not true, Saudi Arabia spent about 110 billion dollars recently in arms deal with the US, The EF is another story as the deal was signed back in 2006 for 72 EF over two decades. Spain is a trustworthy partner with Saudi Arabia in naval procurement, France comes second. The Saudi also signed MOU with the US for the LCS II but the deal is not likely to go through because the Saudis demand Ageis system something the LCS can't handle in the long run for technical issues mainly related to powering the System.
