UAE Air Force signs contract with Saab for new advanced airborne surveillance system

posted on 10/11/2015: 1804 views



Defence and security company Saab has signed a contract with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Air Force to expand and enhance its airborne surveillance capabilities. Saab will deliver a new airborne Swing Role Surveillance System (SRSS) incorporating a new version of the Saab Erieye radar system. The order value amounts to approximately USD1.27 billion.

The new SRSS for the UAE uses two Global 6000 aircrafts from Bombardier as a platform. The Swing Role Surveillance System is capable of simultaneous detection and tracking of multiple targets in the air, on land and at sea. It is the latest evolution of the Erieye system that incorporates Saab s many decades of radar capabilities across all domains.

The deal was announced during a press conference yesterday on the side-line of Dubai Air Show in attendance of Abdulla Al Hashemi, Executive Director for the Military Committee at the Dubai Airshow, and Hakan Buskhe, President and CEO of Saab.

"The new version of Erieye is without a doubt the most capable airborne early warning and control system on the market. Saab s capability to develop high technology solutions for customers shows that our focus on research and development is the right way to ensure continued competitiveness on the defence market," says Hakan Buskhe, President and CEO of Saab.

"Saab understands the vital importance of advanced airborne surveillance and we have a family of products that play a key role in defence and civil security. The UAE s selection of Saab s solution confirms our strong position regarding airborne surveillance and systems integration," says Micael Johansson, head of Saab Business Area Electronic Defence Systems. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -http://www.wam.ae/en/news/economics/1395287788741.html
