Only five months after contract award, Airborne Technologies delivered a fully upgraded EC135 Police Helicopter. Legacy systems have been removed quickly and state-of-the-art law enforcement and surveillance technology has been installed.
At the beginning of July of 2016, Airborne Technologies was awarded a tender by the Republic of Slovenia, Ministry of Interior, to integrate their EC135 with the latest Airborne LINX package containing Wescam MX15, the Churchill ATOM Mission Computer and Augmented Reality, BMS down-link, Trakka Beam A800 searchlight and Avalex full HD displays.
All the interior components as well as the MX15 camera bracket were made out of carbon fiber. The resulting weight reduction is increasing the aircraft payload. Also, the EC135 is equipped with the new enhanced Airborne Technologies Mission Management Unit (MMU), a simple-to-use control device for all sensors on board.
What is new?
• Full NVIS compatible workstation
• “Quad/Split Screen” and “Picture in Picture” functions
• Particularly stable user software
• Easy change of firmware via SD card
• CAN-Bus Connection
Mr. Grumeth, CEO of Airborne Technologies, says: “I am very proud on our team and partners that we were able to realize the project within such a short time line. Despite the steady growth of our company, we have maintained the flexibility to meet individual customer demands and timely requirements. Our drive and knowledge set us apart from our competition. With this modern surveillance platform, Slovenia is ideally prepared to meet the constantly changing future challenges in modern police work.”
