Airborne LINX - The Number One Choice for the Danish Defence
As a subcontractor of the Swiss company Zimex Aviation Ltd., Airborne Technologies will design and certify the comprehensive surveillance suite of two new Danish Home Guard patrol aircraft. The Home Guard supports the Danish Defence, the Police, and other authorities to accomplish their various special missions, be it Surveillance, SAR, Maritime Patrol, or ISR operations.
The Danish Ministry of Defence signed an 8-year lease contract with Zimex for two De Havilland DHC-6-300 aircraft. These patrol platforms will be missionized with an Airborne LINX Surveillance System, which includes a state-of-the-art operator workstation, an observer station and a full ISR sensor suite.
The modifications will be performed at Zimex in Altenrhein, Switzerland, and the Airborne Technologies facility in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. Delivery of the two aircraft is expected in 2024.
Wolfgang Grumeth, CEO of Airborne Technologies, says, “We are proud to be part of this cross-European order. We look forward to partnering with Zimex and delivering together two modern and leading-edge equipped surveillance aircraft, perfectly tailored to the needs of the Danish Home Guard.”
