SKYCAR EVO Light ISR

Thanks to its characteristics, SKYCAR EVO is a Multirole platform that can be used for several mission typology (training, surveillance, air rescue, environmental monitoring).

Moreover its particular configuration makes the airplane particularly suited for the installation of special systems and specific modules for special configurations.
Therefore the SKYCAR EVO Light ISR besides the contrast of illegal traffic over seas is offered also for the accomplishment of other functions of internal Police and surveillance over land and over seas

SKYCAR Light ISR platform is proposed as a cheaper alternative for all the mission performed by heavy twin engine aircraft (King Air, P166) and for all short duration missions (3-4h) for which the use of platform as ATR42, Saab340, Dash8 is much more expensive .

Moreover the SKYCAR Light ISR platform is particularly suited for all those missions for which a longer endurance is required, and is proposed in an operative scenario as complementary to helicopters.
Last but not the least the possibility to use SKYCAR EVO Light ISR as trainer.

The configuration of the SKYCAR EVO Light ISR includes:

Electro-optical sensor
SAR Radar
AIS
Direction Finder
DATALINK (Option SATCOM)
Mission Management System driven by Laptop PC
