Saab’s GlobalEye, a multi-role Airborne Early Warning and Control system, has been installed on a Bombardier Global 6000. Saab has received three GlobalEye aircraft orders from the UAE’s Ministry of Defense.
“The next-generation GlobalEye program demonstrates the versatility of the Global 6000 aircraft, a sophisticated platform that can be outfitted into an elite surveillance tool,” said David Coleal, president, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
“Its advanced and flexible wing, for example, features leading-edge slats for excellent handling, and delivers a smooth ride that can minimize crew fatigue and extend the life of mission equipment.”
The Global 6000 has four variable frequency generators and an auxiliary power unit in its standard configuration, features intended to ensure reliable electrical power. More than 1,000 specialized Bombardier aircraft are in service.
