Missions & features

Proven capability

The ATR 72MP builds on the reliability, maintainability, low life-cycle cost, and comfort of the ATR 72-600 regional aircraft from which it is derived, together with exceptional Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) capabilities.

Mission flexibility

The ATR 72MP excels in all military maritime surveillance roles, from monitoring sea lanes and fisheries protection, to counter-smuggling, Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) patrol, and Search and Rescue (SAR). The aircraft can act as a flying command post and can double as a capable personnel transport in case of emergency. It also performs effectively in Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and anti-surface operations.

Enhanced situational awareness

The ATR 72MP provides excellent situational awareness thanks to Leonardo’s advanced Airborne Tactical Observation and Surveillance (ATOS) mission system. ATOS is at the core of the mission suite and manages the aircraft’s wide array of sensors to provide a clear tactical picture for the mission system operators, with up to four state-of-the-art stations available.

Powerful sensors

The baseline configuration comprises an advanced, long range, multi-mode surveillance Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar such as state-of-the-art types from Leonardo’s Electronics Division; an electro-optical turret equipped with visible and infrared imaging cameras; an Automatic Identification System (AIS) to locate and identify vessels equipped with AIS transponder; and an Airborne Search And Rescue System Direction Finder (ASARS DF).
