Mexico signs for unmanned Dominators

Zitat:
Aeronautics has signed a contract to supply two Dominator XP unmanned air systems to the armed forces of Mexico.

Based on Diamond Aircraft's twin-engined DA42, the Dominator XP has a flight endurance of 28h and is capable of carrying a 300kg (660lb) payload. The modified aircraft can be flown to an altitude of up to 30,000ft (9,150m) and has a top speed of 190kt (351km/h).

A first export sale of the type was made in mid-2011, shortly after Aeronautics had secured clearance from Israel's defence ministry. One Dominator XP is currently operated by CAE in Alma, Quebec, and is being used to support Project "Miskam", which is aimed at evaluating the use of UAS in civil airspace.

Northrop announces partnership with Diamond Aircraft for surveillance market

Zitat:
Northrop Grumman has announced a new partnership with Diamond Aircraft Industries and a new presence in Ontario, Canada, to develop surveillance aircraft for Canadian and international markets.

The announcement came at the CANSEC defence and security show in Ottawa, where the government has been slowly pursuing a long-endurance, unmanned surveillance capability under the joint uninhabited surveillance and target acquisition system (JUSTAS) project.

The London, Ontario-based Diamond Aircraft has developed manned and unmanned surveillance versions of the DA42 twin-propeller light aircraft.

“Combined with Northrop Grumman’s leadership in manned and unmanned systems, we can pool our expertise to explore new opportunities for our customers worldwide.”

The deal also gives Northrop a new product to offer in the class of unmanned aircraft below the high-altitude, jet-driven RQ-4B Global Hawk and MQ-4C Triton.

Zitat:
An unmanned DA42 called the Dominator is also marketed by Israel-based Aeronautics Defense Systems, which has agreements for marketing and production with Aurora Flight Sciences and Boeing.

The agreement with Northrop comes at a critical time for Diamond Aircraft. It has refocused its efforts on the government and defence market since 2008, and closed the single-engined D-Jet development programme.

“We’re very excited to move forward in this long-term relationship,” says Peter Maurer, president and chief executive of Diamond Industries Inc.

Diamonds Are Forever, With New Noses And Now Radar

Zitat:
Diamond Aircraft is showing a maritime-surveillance version of the popular DA42 MPP Guardian, equipped with the company’s own radar, in the static park here at the Farnborough Airshow. Founder of the Austrian company, Christian Dries, told AIN that Diamond developed the spinning AESA radar in the past 12 months, because conventional radar houses could offer only a two-year lead time. Diamond’s radar weighs less than 20 kg (44 pounds), offers a range of 120 km (75 miles), and also includes AIS, the maritime equivalent of IFF. Endurance of the aircraft is 12 hours.


Das neue Radar erkennt man auf dem Bild unten:

US looking to upgrade ISR kit on Nigerien DA42MPP aircraft

Zitat:
The US government is seeking a supplier to upgrade the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities on two aircraft operated by Niger.

The draft statement of work (SOW) issued by the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) covers the upgrade of ISR equipment on a pair of Diamond DA42MPP (Multi-Purpose Platform) aircraft currently fielded by the Niger Air Force (Armee de l'Air du Niger).

As well as the upgrade to the two aircraft, the draft SOW also calls for providing two fixed ground stations and two portable ground stations, as well as training. NAVAIR wants replies from interested parties by 18 August.

Niger took delivery of its two DA42MPP aircraft in October 2008 as part of a wider enhancement of the African nation's airborne surveillance capabilities that included the provision by France of eight Humbert Tétras microlights. The DA42MPPs are primarily tasked with counter-narcotics, -people, and -arms smuggling.

The DA42MPPs are equipped with the Airbus Defence and Space Electronics Goshawk 350 airborne observation system incorporating day and night sensors, as well as a Scotty satellite datalink allowing real-time relay of video, voice, and data to ground stations.

Centaur OPV Creates Interest in Europe

Zitat:
Aurora Flight Sciences is close to securing up to three customers in Europe, plus one in the U.S., for its Centaur optionally piloted aircraft (OPA), which is based on the Diamond DA42 twin-engine tourer, the company told AIN. - See more at: http://www.uasvision.com/2014/08/19/cen ... ly38g.dpuf

Zitat:
“One potential customer requires the Centaur for a big airborne mapping task; another for the training of UAV operators; and another for airspace integration training,” a spokesman for Aurora said at the recent Farnborough airshow. He noted that the Centaur has already been employed in Europe, when the Swiss ministry of defense used one to aid its evaluation of new UAVs. That evaluation led to the selection of the Elbit Systems Hermes 900 earlier this year; the Swiss used the Centaur OPA to test payloads and evaluate sense-and-avoid systems.

The conversion of a DA42 Multi-Purpose Platform (MPP) to an OPA can be done in the field by two people in just four hours, the Aurora spokesman said. Removal of the copilot’s seat allows installation of a servo rack that “grabs the stick just as a pilot would; drives the rudders; and interfaces with the engine Fadec system and the Diamond’s electrical bus.” Two more OPA-specific boxes must be installed in the nose, and one in the rear. The autopilot and other avionics are triple-redundant, to include full INS and GPS support.

China readies indigenous special mission aircraft production

Bild

Zitat:
Chinese state-owned defence equipment firm China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) revealed that it has entered into an agreement with Austrian light aircraft constructor Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH to indigenously develop and manufacture special mission aircraft based on the DA42 Multi-Purpose Platform (MPP) for the domestic and export market. The collaboration was showcased at the 2014 Airshow China exhibition held in Zhuhai from 11 to 16 November.

According to CETC, its Chengdu-based Special Mission Aircraft System Engineering Co Ltd (CETC SMA) business unit will offer fully-equipped aircraft, as well as an extensive range of avionics and electronic mission systems to cater to specific customer requirements.

Zitat:
CETC said it will be offering its DA42 MPP Guardian in at least four configurations. A maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) variant, called the Ocean Hawk, features a nose-mounted electro-optical infrared (EO/IR) sensor turret, synthetic aperture radar (SAR), and an automatic identification system (AIS). The Scout, an electronic intelligence (ELINT) platform, can carry a mission payload comprising a digital direction finder, wideband radio and satellite monitoring receiver, as well as a signal analysis system with real-time data processing capabilities. The company will also produce the Trident Eye and Star of Aerial Surveying variants, which are designed for airborne environmental surveying and precision mapping missions.

Speaking to IHS Jane's in Zhuhai, CETC deputy general manager and senior engineer Hong Yuning said the company will: "initially source some of its avionics and equipment from third-party suppliers", but asserted that it will be capable of producing the full range of mission systems "in the near future".

IHS Jane's understands from Hong that the DA42 MPP Guardian will be manufactured at a new 60 km 2 purpose-built facility in Wuhu city - located in the eastern province of Anhui - by a newly established business unit called the CETC Wuhu Diamond Aircraft Manufacture Co Ltd. The new facility will also produce DV20E Katana two-seat light aircraft for civilian and government purposes.

Zitat:
"The new plant will be ready by 2015, and we expect production of the new aircraft to commence by 2016," he said. "We are also aiming to produce up to 400 aircraft annually."

He also revealed that the company has also teamed up with Austrian aero-engine producer Austro Engine GmbH to produce a range of propulsion systems, including the 168 hp AE300 turboprop engines for the DA42 MPP Guardian, under licence at its Wuhu plant.

Aeronautics prepares maritime-mission Dominator XP

Zitat:
Israel's Aeronautics Defense Systems is in the process of integrating a maritime version of its Dominator XP unmanned aircraft for a client.

Zitat:
The company also has been offering the adapted Diamond Aircraft DA42 for maritime patrol missions, and deputy chief executive Dany Eshchar confirms that a first system is being prepared for an unidentified customer.

Eshchar says there is a growing demand for long-endurance platforms for the protection of exclusive economic zones at sea and to assist in protecting maritime natural gas pumping installations. "The XP will carry an electro-optical payload and a radar, with the exact type according to the customer's requirements," he notes.

Aeronautics believes that by using a certificated manned aircraft adapted for unmanned operations it can provide a very reliable and cost-effective unmanned air system capability.

The twin-engined Dominator XP has a maximum take-off weight of 1,900kg (4,190lb), an endurance of over 20h at altitudes up to 27,000ft, and a top speed of 160kt (296km/h).

PARIS: Sagem and DCI team to offer surveillance aircraft (16. Juni 2015)

Zitat:
French companies Sagem and Défense Conseil International (DCI) have agreed to team to offer manned and unmanned surveillance aircraft to domestic and international markets.

The manned surveillance element will use the Diamond Aircraft DA42 twin engine light aircraft equipped with Sagem’s Euroflir 350 or 410 multi-sensor gyro-stabilised optronic pod, and DCI will contribute its experience in services, training and customer assistance, the companies say.

The DA42 offers a cruise speed in excess of 300 km/h and an endurance of 6 - 10 hours, and DCI has fit it with an optronic payload, maritime surveillance radar, data transmission system and data post-processing system for the surveillance mission.

The Euroflir family of sensors, meanwhile, have primarily been used in operations by helicopters deployed by the French navy, army and special forces.

Sagem will focus on the surveillance and intelligence unmanned air vehicle market using its Patroller system, alongside the operational support of DCI for contract proposals regarding system operation and maintenance for both government forces and the private sector. The Patroller UAV uses the Euroflir 410 system.

Meet China's New Spy Plane (With An Austrian Body)

Bild

Zitat:
The CSA-003 is China's newest Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) aircraft. Built by the China Electronic Technology Corporation's Avionics division, the CSA-003 is a family of special mission aircraft that include maritime patrol and oil spill response.

Zitat:
Built by CETCS off of an Austrian designed Diamond DA42 utility plane, the CSA-003 is a twin turboprop engined, 1.7 ton plane with heavy composite usage in its fuselage. The website states that the CSSA-003's crew consists of 1-2 pilots and 1 sensor operator. The sensor payload, carried in a pod under the fuselage, consists of a modern, digital ELINT and signals processing suite that can detect, track and analyze enemy electronic activities, such as communications, weapons guidance and radars.

The CSA-003 also has the capability for installing an electro optical/infrared sensor turret, which can detect enemy regular and irregular forces like infantry under all weather conditions. The CSA-003 can count on satellite links and processing support from ground stations to act as part of a larger network of integrated electronic attack assets.

The CSA-003 will join larger Chinese ELINT platforms, such as the medium Y-9 aircraft. Its parallel may more be smaller ELINT airplanes like the U.S. Army's RC-12 Huron, which are also twin engined turboprop aircraft modified for gathering battlefield intelligence in counterinsurgency environments like Afghanistan and Iraq. The usage of a European airframe, subject to EU arms restrictions, suggests that the CSA-003 may initially be geared to paramilitary missions like border patrol.


Beim ersten Bild war Photoshop im Spiel - die Markierungen und das Firmenlogo von Rohde & Schwarz wurden einfach wegretuschiert. Am Heckleitwerk erkennt man noch die Reflexion einer österreichischen Flagge, die eigentlich nicht da ist.

Improved DA42 MPP Special Mission Aircraft Completed (24. Mai 2016)

Bild

Bild

Zitat:
Since the beginning of 2016, Diamond Aircraft produces a complete re-designed variant of its special mission aircraft DA42 MPP.

The turbo-charged, jet fuel powered aircraft has undergone significant structural and aerodynamic improvements leading to a better overall performance.

The maximum take-off weight (MTOW) is now 1,999 kg (4,407 lbs), which means an increase of 99 kg (218 lbs) for additional payload or fuel. The average empty weight of 1,380 kg (3,043 lbs) offers now 619 kg (1,365 lbs) for crew, jet fuel, and airborne mission equipment.

The substantial weight reduction resulted in increased speed, enhanced overall performance and most important in additional payload.

The stronger generator provides 28V / 100 Amps (2.8 kW) solely for mission equipment. It is powerful enough to easily run a typical ISR configuration, consisting of a high performance EO/IR turret, a maritime radar, a SATCOM data link and an on-board mission management system.

The improved DA42 MPP variant also comes with the stability augmentation system Garmin ESP (Electronic Stability and Protection).
