State-owned defence electronics company PT Len has equipped an Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) with its Retimax 2000 surveillance and reconnaissance system.
The system, consisting of a mission console, a cockpit display console and gimbal with three different sensors, was mounted on a TNI-AL NC-212 MPA in December. It has undergone several successful tests and is now fully operational, the company told IHS Jane's at the DSA 2014 exhibition on 16 April.
"This is the first MPA equipped as a trial to fulfill the TNI-AL's requirement for a high-definition real-time surveillance system," said Yudiansyah Lubis, the company's control systems engineer.
