Manned ISR

CP Aeronautics offers a turnkey solution for converting a utility helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft into a high-quality aerial surveillance platform. The manned platform is based on DA42 Multi-Purpose Plane (MPP) twin-engine aircraft with an advanced airframe, avionics and engines.

The pilot console houses the front monitor, providing the pilot with real-time, high-resolution, AISR video image. The nose of the aircraft houses the EO payload. The onboard Payload Electronic Box (PEB) controls the communications and provides operating power for the STA and the control.
