Bombardier to supply aircraft for Swedish AWACS

The Swedish Air Force is preparing for new airborne early warning and control capabilities as Bombardier Defense makes a sixth delivery of its Global 6000 aircraft.

The Swedish Air Force is preparing for new airborne early warning and control capabilities as Bombardier Defense makes a sixth delivery of its Global 6000 aircraft.

The new aircraft will join the Swedish Air Force once international defence company Saab completes the transformation of the aircraft into its airborne early warning and control solution under the GlobalEye program.

Once installed, Saab’s GlobalEye program integrates radar, command, control and communication systems into a multi-domain airborne surveillance solution using Bombardier’s class-leading Global 6000 aircraft.

“Our jets are internationally recognised as modern, go-to platforms by some of the world’s largest defence contractors, such as Saab,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, executive vice-president, aircraft sales and Bombardier Defense.

“The Global aircraft family represents the right-sized solution for multi-mission, surveillance and VIP transport. Time and time again, it has met customers’ expectations for their most demanding mission needs.

“The Bombardier team is proud to associate its aircraft with strong partners to create the next-generation defence solutions around the world.”

Earlier this year, Bombardier Defense announced a partnership with General Dynamics Mission Systems-Canada to deliver the next-generation Multi-Mission and Anti-Submarine Warfare aircraft.
