Description: The Saab 340 AEW&C is an affordable Airborne Early Warning and Control aircraft developed in conjunction by Saab, airborne platform, and Ericsson , Erieye surveillance radar system, for the Swedish Air Force in the late 1990s. The Swedish Air Force took six aircraft beginning in 1997 under S 100B Argus designation. The Saab 340 AEW&C key element is the Erieye active phased array side looking surveillance radar which features a detection range of up to 300 km for fighter-sized airborne targets and maritime surveillance mode. In October 2007, Thailand selected the JAS 39 Gripen and Saab 340-based Airborne Early Warning aircraft. Under this agreement Thailand could take delivery of two Saab 340 AEW&C aircraft with only one aircraft provided with Erieye radar system.
