Airborne LINX - As individual as your mission - does not only refer to the integrated system components but also to the customer´s platform.
Airborne Technologies has proven that their Airborne LINX integration solution is perfectly suitable for Large Helicopters.
The certification of a TRAKKA A800 searchlight on an EC145 T2 of the Norsk Luftambulanse AS was the final step of a new Airborne LINX solution for a Large Helicopter. The mounting solution of the box on the outside of the helicopter provides additional room inside the cabin and protects the control unit of the searchlight from harsh weather conditions.
Just prior this project, Airborne Technologies upgraded a Kazakhstan MOI SAR EC145, with a state-of-the-art tactical workstation including a foldable full HD screen, Euronav RN5, the Airborne LINX Mission Management Unit (MMU) and a Video Stabilizing Unit (VMU). The helicopter provides ECS downlink, tactical radio and carbon fibre brackets for a Wescam MX-10 gimbal and a SX16 searchlight. In addition to integrating large helicopters like the EC145, Airborne Technologies has provided several certified solutions for EC135 police helicopters.
Wolfgang Grumeth, CEO of Airborne Technologies, says: ”Airbus Helicopters are the most widely used helicopters for police, SAR and military surveillance tasks. The certification of a complete EC145 mission equipped helicopter in our STC portfolio is another milestone for us in providing field proven surveillance tools for police and military.”
