Summit Aviation, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today that it has delivered its first Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform to a State Law Enforcement Department.
The modified Mahindra Aerospace GippsAero GA8 Airvan Astra new aircraft utilizes off-the-shelf commercial packages, in addition to Summit’s customized and installed features such as a full work station with moving maps and overlays, cross-cueing of various sensors, a 3D mapping aerial camera system and full motion video capability to enhance the mission capabilities of the operator.
“The delivery of this aircraft reinforces the cornerstone relationship Summit Aviation has developed with the law enforcement community,” said Summit Aviation’s General Manager Ralph Kunz. “These technically advanced aircraft and mission systems are vital to law enforcement agencies and their mission to protect and serve their communities.”
The GippsAero GA8 Airvan was chosen due to its level of airworthiness and safety certification standards, its high cabin volume and payload and its exceptional fuel efficiency. Summit is currently showcasing its prototype aircraft to law enforcement, the United States Department of Defense and government agencies throughout the United States.
