Poland is in advanced negotiations with Sweden to acquire the Saab GlobalEye airborne early warning and control (AEW&C).

The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Defence, Mariusz Błaszczak, made the disclosure on May 22, saying he expects a contract to be finalized in the short term.

“I wanted to say publicly for the first time that we are very advanced in obtaining early warning aircraft from Sweden. We are already conducting detailed negotiations. I hope they will be successful in a short time,” Błaszczak said during a meeting of Northern Group NATO members.

Poland does not currently field an AEW&C capability, relying instead on the NATO Airborne Early Warning Force, and the Boeing E-3A Sentry AWACS aircraft of the E-3A Component.
