The final tests for the first Pakistani Air Force (PAF) Saab 2000 Erieye airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft have begun in Sweden.

The tests will evaluate the complete system including aircraft, radar, C2 system, communication and live situation picture including integration into the Pakistani Air Force’s command and control ground environment.

The PAF will utilise the airborne system to perform continuous surveillance of air territory, borders and the sea.

The system consists of three parts – an airborne segment, a ground-based segment, and a logistics and support service.

The airborne segment includes Saab 2000 aircraft equipped with the airborne early warning radar system Erieye.

The Erieye AEW&C, together with existing ground-based radars, will provide the air force a more detailed picture for conducting more-efficient rescue operations as well as to counter potential threats to national security.
