  1. Diamond Aircraft Delivers DA62 MPP To DEA
    Diamond Aircraft announced that they delivered another special missions aircraft. This time the aircraft is based on their DA62 platform and it is in the form of an MPP (Maritime Patrol aircraft). "Working with DEA, a long-term customer, is already a very lean and streamlined process, and after all the years it has become more than just a business relationship between the teams, which creates a very pleasant working atmosphere. Beside that, the fact that DEA got their 10th aircraft from us, sends a strong message to the industry that our special mission platforms are the best in class," says Mario Spiegel, Sales Manager, Special Mission Aircraft Division at Diamond Aircraft Austria.
  2. As a maritime patrol aircraft it is fitted with an array of sensors and cameras to suit the missions it will embark on. It has a big belly radar which is one of its notable features. For the installation of the radar, a new radar pod had to be designed and developed, and as a result the BR-700 (Belly Radome 700mm) pod has been certified. This new pod combines both aerodynamic as well as radar specific requirements. It also has state-of-the-art EO/IR camera, maritime radar as previously mentioned, AIS receiver, marine band radio, SIGINT system and a Beyond Line of Sight datalink. This particular delivery is now the 10th specimen for the DEA.
