ISD Wins Contract for Indonesian Navy MPA Mission Systems Upgrades

Our Bureau - : Apr 23, 2024 - : 10:21 am

Integrated Surveillance and Defense (ISD) has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD), for the Indonesian Navy’s (TNI-AL) Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) mission systems upgrades, modifications, and related support programs.

Under the contract, U.S.-based ISD will upgrade two CN-235 maritime patrol and modify one King Air 350i aircraft with proven maritime surveillance systems. The company will also manufacture and deliver one Mission System Simulator (MSS) for training and provide a Field Service Representative (FSR). The ISD solution will consist of the installation and integration of a maritime surveillance radar, electro-optical/infrared sensor, airborne Automatic Identification System (AIS), mission management system (MMS) and data link communications. The work will be completed in 24 months.

ISD has been a key system integrator of maritime surveillance systems for CN-235 for the past 12 years, installing and integrating solutions in Indonesia for two Navy and one Air Force aircraft, as well as for three Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) and one Senegalese Air Force (SAF) platform. All installation and integration work has been in collaboration with Indonesian Aerospace (PTDI), with installation in Bandung, Indonesia. ISD’s mission system has been certified by the Indonesian Defence Airworthiness Authority (IDAA) for the CN235 aircraft.

Additionally, ISD has integrated and installed ISR equipment on over 20 King Air aircraft, including the Victoria Police (Australia), Mexican Air Force and Navy, Guatemala Air Force, Egyptian Air Force, Turkish Land Forces and Jandarma as well as the Nigerian Air Force. ISD is also the prime system integrator for nine US Customs Border Protection (CBP) Multi-Enforcement (MEA) Land Interdiction (LI) aircraft.

“Installation and delivery of ISD’s solutions will provide a common mission system for Indonesian Navy and Air Force aircraft, resulting in standardized mission execution and training for all operators, resulting in increased mission effectiveness,” said Blaise Dagilaitis, President of ISD. “Additionally, this program will enable a common equipment spares pool that can be used across platforms, thus reducing life cycle and maintenance costs”.
