The Sea Eagle is a cost effective multi-role maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) with anti-submarine warfare capabilities and equipped with state-of-the-art technology for superior situational awareness. The Sea Eagle is a variant of the twin-engine turboprop, regional aircraft ATR 72 series.
In the offered configuration, the aircraft is equipped with a long-range multimode radar and EO/IR sensor to deliver aerial, maritime and ground surveillance. Moreover, the aircraft features an acoustic processing system with sonobuoy launchers, a self- protection suite and two weapon hard points, enabling unique maritime and anti-submarine warfare capabilities.
The installed mission systems and sensors are managed by the Aerodata AeroMission system. The AeroMission can display feeds from the installed sensors on each control station and has a sensor fusion algorithm, providing the onboard crew with comprehensive situational awareness.
The first of the ATR-72 twin-engine turboprops converted into MPAs was delivered to the Pakistan Navy in the second quarter of 2018, while the second aircraft was delivered in June 2019.
