The solution, when integrated with the air vehicle, will provide a detailed situational awareness to the user. The aircraft is expected to be used for tasks including border surveillance and search-and-rescue operations.

Currently, different configurations of the Erieye AEW&C system are in operational use in countries including Sweden, Greece, Brazil, Mexico, Pakistan, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The Saab 2000 aircraft is a variant of the Saab 2000 regional transport turboprop aircraft equipped with the spine-mounted Saab Systems Erieye PS-890 side-looking reconnaissance radar.

Last month, Saab has concluded the first air trials with its new Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar. The fighter X-band radar is a new addition to the PS-05/A radar family of Saab, which continues to develop core AESA technology.
