The DA62 MPP has been specially designed for carrying multi-functional aerial sensors, like EO/IR cameras, land and sea radars, COMINT solutions, airborne laser scanners or large format digital aerial cameras, and more.Learn more
The combination of lowest operating cost with simple aircraft handling and a very low noise signature offers current and new special mission customers a significant competitive advantage.
Outstanding features at a glance:
The roomy fuselage provides an ergonomically optimized cabin for two pilots, operator station and plenty of cabin volume for mission equipment and gear.
The operator station is ergonomically designed, tailored for the needs of the operator and modular for 1 or 2 operators. Mission equipment can be hold in the luggage compartment through hard points and/or a eqipment rack.
Tomorrow's mission is different than yesterdays? No problem! The versatile and cost effective DA62 MPP platform is suitable for:
The DA62 MPP has been specially designed for carrying multi-functional aerial sensors, like EO/IR cameras, land and sea radars, COMINT solutions, airborne laser scanners or large format digital aerial cameras, and more.
Mission kits can be mounted on specific hard points located on the nose and belly of the aircraft as well as in the cabin and nose luggage compartments. A stronger Universal Nose carries EO/IR cameras up to 20 inch and 60 kg, the belly is designed for maritime or land radar applications up to 50 kg, and the newly designed SATCOM pod easily houses L-, Ku-, or Ka Band antennas.
We offer a long list of approved sensors from renowned manufacturers to meet your demand. For more information please download our approved sensor portfolio.
In cooperation with our partners, Vexcel Imaging, IGI, Somag as well as RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems, Diamond created a strong and modern European state-of-the-art survey configuration - the DA62 MPP SurveyStar. The extraordinary low noise signature of the aircraft, supported by the on-top exhaust systems, in combination with the low fuel burn fits perfectly to the idea to operate silently and environmentally friendly.
Survey Hatch Concept
To have the most clean and aerodynamic shape, Diamond follows the idea to integrate survey cameras as well as the stabilization mount in the cabin by replacing the right-hand operator seat. The easy access to the large luggage compartment allows Diamond an easy installation of all additional mission equipment like data storage units, FMS and others. After a year of massive development effort, Diamond received two EASA STC major changes, 62-001 which describes the 20”/ ø508 mm modification in the fuselage centre section as well as the EASA STC 62-002 which describes the single seat configuration modification.
Single Seat Concept
The standard available seat bench of the DA62 was replaced by two individual DA62 pilot seats to significantly increase the comfort and generate more room for the operator. The seats were re-positioned backwards by 50 mm, there is a console in the middle for standard Dzus units or other tailor-made applications as well as the opportunity to benefit from the adjustable backrest for the operators.
Typical Survey Multi Mission Solution
A Vexcel UltraCAM Eagle or Osprey incl. Ultranav, a SOMAG GSM4000 stabilization mount install in the cabin in combination with RIEGL VQ-780 II airborne scanner in the Universal Nose.
The DA62 MSA is outfitted with a full Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) suite based on Leonardo’s ATOS (Airborne Tactical Observation and Surveillance) mission system and deliver a single, intuitive operational picture to the crew. Sensor options will also be offered for users who require additional capability, including Leonardo’s SAGE electronic support measures (ESM) system and Spider communications intelligence (COMINT) system. SAGE provides tactical threat awareness and strategic intelligence gathering in the radio-frequency (RF) environment, while Spider can detect, intercept, identify and geo-locate communications of interest.
EO/IR Camera Safran „EuroFlir 410“
The EuroFlir 410 from Safran ultra-long-range electro-optical system offers the performance and power to meet the top requirements of an EO/IR sensor.
Thuraya’s L-band satellite network enables the real-time transmission of HD aerial video and position data from the aircraft to the mission control centre. The live surveillance imagery, flight tracking, and duplex
data will be displayed on the ground using SCOTTY´s Mobile HD portable receive station that supports critical applications including live exchange of ISR information, transmission of border/coastal patrol
imagery and first-responder support.
Gabbiano Ultra-Light TS-80 Radar
The light weight surveillance radar provides an extensive suite of modes including optimised maritime patrol capabilities, high resolution ground mapping via synthetic aperture radar (SAR) modes, ground moving target indication (GMTI) and weather avoidance modes.
Equipped with the AI-driven WAMI (wide-area, multi-domain mapping and ISR) sensor TK-8 from Overwatch Imaging, the EO/IR (electro-optical, infrared) camera TC300 from Trakka Systems and the ARTEMIS (Mobile Phone Detection, Location & Communication System) from Smith Myers, the DA62 VANGUARD is perfectly suited for applications such as automated fire mapping, vegetation analyses, flood mapping, wildlife monitoring, oil spill mapping, 3D modeling and many other missions, like border security or search and rescue.
With the TK-8 five spectral bands (RGB, NIR, SWIR, LWIR and MWIR), this new Diamond Aircraft special mission turnkey solution can detect anomalies, interpret them through its AI control, and deliver the results to the operator in the aircraft or to the decision makers on the ground – all in real time. This solves a common problem as human-intensive imaging systems require highly trained and alert observers who are tasked with locating small objects of interest in vast and challenging environments.
