GlobalEye is the new early warning and airspace control solution providing aerial, maritime and terrestrial surveillance in one solution thanks to Saab’s new Erieye Extended Range radar and a range of additional advanced sensors combined with the Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft.

The same aircraft serves as the basis for the Dolphin Program which saw the Emirate air forces order at the end of 2018 two aircraft in the electronic intelligence version (ELINT) Global 6000 Dolphin to be used also in the overseas operational contexts (Yemen and Libya) in which Abu Dhabi is engaged with its own military forces.
