Saab will provide maintenance and support services to United Arab Emirates’ airborne surveillance system under a two-year contract which totals $17.3 million.
The UAE operates Saab’s airborne 340 Erieye radar, and Saab 340 aircraft and ground equipment.
The Erieye early warning and control radar system utilizes active electronically scanned array technology and provides 360-degree coverage.
“The agreement is a confirmation of our ability to deliver a comprehensive support solution over the product’s entire life cycle, during which we are able to guarantee availability for the customer,” said Jonas Hjelm, head of Saab’s Support and Services business area.
The contract will be implemented during the 2016-2018 timeframe.
