Capabilities

Adaptable Manned Aerial Platform.  Our Cessna 337 aircraft are the ideal choice for affordable fixed-wing, high endurance, air services across a wide variety of mission areas:

 

  • GPS, TACAN, VHF, UHF, Full spectrum LOS (UHF/VHF/Maritime) voice communication relay platform to include MILCOM UHF.

  • Separate Audio control panel for Pilot, Copilot, and Observers

  •  Target Command and Control Telemetry Relay platform for SNTC and PCCU

  • AUTOCAT / Communication Relay Platform

  • Missile Control Test Set (MCTS), combat systems testing and alignment

  • Range clearance operations for "live fire" missile shoots

  • Mammal Mitigation / Surface Clearance Operations

  • Combat Systems Testing and Alignment (TrackX) using centerline high candlepower LEDs

  • Low, Slow Flier presentation, SL to 18,000 ft. / 65-200 kts.

  • Extended Overwater Operations Up to 8 hours

  • Aerial and Surface Target Location, Tracking and Recovery, Surveillance / EO

  • Ability to mount wing/fuselage Cameras, Radars, and Antennas.

Search and Rescue / Maritime Surveillance and Monitoring

  • Pilots are experienced in overland and overwater SAR.

  • Experienced with coordination with USAF RCC for overland SAR and USCG RCC (rescue coordination center) for maritime SAR and in acting as the on-scene commander for coordinating multiple SAR aircraft 

  • Equipped and capable for long endurance overwater visual search

  • Long endurance/low speed/ low altitude capable = long-range search at optimum visual search altitude and lower speed for a greater chance of spotting survivors (too fast /too high doesn't work)

  • Long endurance allows aircraft to remain on station with survivors while rotor wing or seaborne assets arrive   

  • High wing allows optimum visual search capability for up to three observers plus the pilot.

  • Equipped to fly precise search patterns via our nav systems (ladder, expanding square, etc) at optimum visual search altitude.

 Proven:
