Effective Surveillance Requires Stealth and Endurance

The DA-42 MPP NG with it's acoustically quiet "on top" exhaust is one of the most silent aircraft flying today. In loiter at 500 feet it's noise measurement is only 59 decibels, at a few thousand feet it is virtually undetectable.

By burning only 3.5 gallons per engine/per hour - 7 gallons total the DA-42 has an impressive 12 hour time on station - of course routine patrols are typically only two to three hours, but when your high value suspect is on the run it is nice to be able to maintain the chase.

The DA-42 Multi Purpose Platform is the first aircraft built from the ground up to provide a modular "plug and play" architecture to allow quick modifications for a variety of surveillance missions. It has the ability to carry almost any sensor up to 15 inches on the nose, and a variety of sensors and downlinks on the centerline mount and additional antenna hard points. Unlike other aircraft these hard points for sensors and radios are built in, so you will not have to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for additional hardware and modifications after the aircraft purchase.
