One platform, multi-mission capabilities
Designed as a true military multi-mission turboprop platform, the C-27J has the best performance among the twin engine aircraft of its class: high top cruising speed, long range, high payload, capability to operate at slow speed and very low altitude in total safety.
With modular roll-on/roll-off systems the MC-27J is a quickly reconfigurable platform for Maritime Patrol, ISR, data gathering and direct tactical support to airborne and ground operations. Mission kits/pallets offer acquisition and operating costs significantly lower than a dedicated platform.
Missions & Features
The mission portfolio can be tailored to the specific customer needs and can include tasks such as SAR (Search And Rescue, both at sea and over land), Maritime Patrol, C3ISR (Command, Control, Communication, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance), SIGINT (SIGnal INTelligence), Combat Support, Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Anti-Surface Warfare (ASuW), also in the demanding arctic region.
Typical sensors which can be installed in accordance with the specific
customer requirements, among several other pieces of equipment, include: AESA Search radar, providing world class-leading MP/ASW/SAR/ISR capabilities across maritime and overland domains; Electro-Optical/Infra-Red (EO/IR) system in a stabilized platform; Electronic Support Measure (ESM) for ISR and SIGINT/ELINT tasks; Magnetic Anomaly Detector (MAD) system and an Acoustic Subsystem and two rotary Sonobuoy Launch System for ASW missions
Systems & equipment
A palletized, quickly removable Mission System manages the sensors, analyses the gathered information to perform a true Data Fusion, providing the crew with a detailed, real time overall tactical picture; an enhanced Communication System is connected to the Mission System, also for SIGINT/COMINT purposes and Palletized Fire support system.
