Dubai 2011: Diamond DA42 MPP shines in Dubai
Diamond Aircraft is showing the prototype of its new maritime surveillance aircraft at the Dubai Airshow.
The DA42 MPP Guardian is equipped for offshore surveillance missions with a new maritime radar in a newly-developed belly installation, with a specially designed SAR Radome.
The aircraft is also equipped with an EO/IR camera, an automatic identification system (AIS) and a data-link.
The new Diamond DA42 MPP offers a cost-effective turnkey solution for a range of maritime surveillance tasks, including fishery protection, anti-pirate and anti-smuggling patrols.
Diamond Airborne Sensing and Scotty Group Austria are mounting daily live demonstrations of their beyond line-of-sight surveillance capability, demonstrating how live beyond line-of-sight video and HD imagery can be sent (via satellite) to a ground station in the company’s chalet from a DA42 MPP flying over Austria.
