Thales has delivered the first of two further AMASCOS mission systems to the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF).
Thales said the AMASCOS was to support the conversion of four RMAF's Beech 200 aircraft to a highly-capable maritime surveillance platform, due to enter service next year.
It said the AMASCOS delivered an effective maritime surveillance, airborne maritime patrol and ground surveillance capability.
"Its modular and flexible design can accommodate a number of high-definition sensors (optical, radar, acoustic, electronic support measures) and integrate the data into a comprehensive yet easy to operate maritime situational awareness picture. Users are able to focus on the task in hand and remain one step ahead of the actions of those under their surveillance," Thales said. (Bernama)
