Bombardier business jets are ideal for critical special missions. Modern-day intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems are lighter and more compact, no longer requiring commercial aircraft proportions. The Global 6000 aircraft is a better fit, delivering performance and leading-edge tech.

“The next-generation GlobalEye programme demonstrates the versatility of the Global 6000 aircraft, a sophisticated platform that can be outfitted into an elite surveillance tool,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “Its advanced and flexible wing, for example, features leading-edge slats for excellent handling, and delivers a smooth ride that can minimize crew fatigue and extend the life of mission equipment.” 

Missionised versions of Bombardier Global aircraft are already in service with elite military clientele, having completed thousands of missions over the last decade, and demonstrating excellent dispatch reliability. Global aircraft are especially attractive for military use because of their speed, agility, endurance and low operating costs compared to other aircraft in their class.

The Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft offers the most available electrical power in its category in its standard configuration via four variable frequency generators and an auxiliary power unit for ultimate reliability on long missions. The Bombardier Vision flight deck offers a head-up display with both Enhanced and Synthetic Vision. 

“We carefully selected the robust and sophisticated Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft for our airborne surveillance solutions. It brings a perfect balance of technology, operational performance and cost, and is ideally suited to demanding, multi-level operations,” said Lars Tossman, Vice President and Head of Surveillance Systems, Saab.
