Saab has received an order from the United Arab Emirates for additional functionality for the advanced airborne early warning & control (AEW&C) solution GlobalEye for an approximate $39 million.

The UAE placed its first order for GlobalEye in November 2015. GlobalEye combines air, maritime and ground surveillance in one swing-role solution. It features a full suite of sensors including the new extended range radar (Erieye ER), the company said in a statement Monday.

Saab completed the first flight of its GlobalEye Airborne Early Warning & Control aircraft (AWACS) on March 14 in Linköping, Sweden in March this year. The aircraft, a modified Bombardier Global 6000 jet platform, undertook a 1 hour 46 minutes test flight collecting extensive flight-test data using the on-board instrumentation suite. This data is then used to verify the aircraft performance and associated modelling.
