Di­a­mond Air­craft In­dus­tries has de­liv­ered the first DA62 MPP spe­cial mis­sions to launch cus­tomer DEA Spe­cialised Air­borne Op­er­a­tions based at Gam­ston Air­port. DEA’S DA62 MPP fea­tures two in-house de­signed com­po­nents: NEPTUN light­weight mar­itime search radar and the KOPERNIKUS com­mer­cial satel­lite com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tem – plus a Wescam MX15 elec­tro-optical and in­frared gyro sta­bilised gim­bal cam­era and an air­borne AIS re­ceiver. The mid­sec­tion op­er­a­tor sta­tion is equipped with two HD op­er­a­tor screens, and a mis­sion com­puter with on­board record­ing is mounted in the rear com­part­ment. DEA’S DA62 MPP will be on static dis­play at the Farn­bor­ough Air­show in July.
