Sabena technics has started work on a ATL2 maritime patrol aircraft, as part of the program designed to modernize the aircraft’s combat system to standard 6, at its facility in Dinard (France).

The contract for the upgraded (standard 6) ATL2 combat system was awarded to Dassault Aviation and Thales by the defense procurement agency DGA in October 2013. The program covers a fleet of eighteen aircraft, eleven of which will be modernized by the French SIAé aeronautical maintenance center. The other seven were entrusted to Dassault Aviation, which chose Sabena technics as a subcontractor on the program.

The modernization program to standard 6 includes a new radar – Thales Search Master with active antenna,  a new acoustic subsystem from Thales, a new navigation console designed by Dassault Aviation, new consoles for the tactical display subsystem, developed by the SIAé, and full integration of WESCAM optronics.

“We are delighted to welcome the ATL2 in our facilities for the first time,” said Philippe Rochet, CEO of Sabena technics. “Our technicians were qualified last summer by Dassault Aviation at its Istres center and are now ready to deliver the best quality of service while strictly respecting the deadlines.”
