The NC212i Maritime Surveillance Aircraft (MSA) can be equipped with special equipment, such as : Search Radar, Forward Looking Infra Red (FLIR), Automatic Identification System (AIS), Data Link, bubble window, and hand held camera.
The Mission system will allow the crew to detect, classify identify and track surface targets in its range domain. It capable of operation in day & night, even under adverse weather conditions:
a. Tactical Computer System provides the MSA with advanced integrated command control, which allows optimum use of sensors and equipment.
b. Search Radar is Surveillance Radar with azimuth coverage up to 360o with detection and tracking capabilities of any coastal targets with range up to 120 nm.
c. FLIR (Forward Looking Infra Red) with azimuth coverage up to 360o with detection, tracking and identification capabilities of targets within slant range of 12 km.
d. AIS is a shipboard broadcast data link subsystem that acts like a transponder and provides general information regarding the ships (name, type, route, destination).
e. Data Link has function for exchange data between aircraft and ground station or other fleet.
