Mission Equipment for the Do 228 LM Fleet
Aerodata AG and through subcontracting its subsidiary OPTIMARE Systems GmbH are contracted by the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) for the modernisation of the mission equipment of the two German Dornier 228 maritime surveillance aircraft.
The project target is to increase the sustainability of the existing OPTIMARE MEDUSA® mission systems, the sensor suites, the communication systems, the spares package and the ground segment.
The German Navy operates the two aircraft on behalf of the Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure to monitor the North and Baltic Sea with regard to marine pollution. Both special mission aircraft are based at the German Naval Air Wing 3, Nordholz, Germany. The comprehensive retrofit project is conducted from 2020 to 2023 at the premises of Aerodata AG at the Airport Braunschweig-Wolfsburg.
