ESG to Equip German Police Helicopters with New Mission Systems

German Federal Police Procures Mission Systems

NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) contracted ESG Elektroniksystem- und Logistik-GmbH for the fleet-wide replacement of all mission equipment in Airbus Helicopters AS332L1 Super PUMA, EC155 and EC135 helicopters of the German Federal Police.

The new mission systems will extend the wide range of capability options of the German Federal Police, such as surveillance, reconnaissance, border control, anti-terrorism and sea rescue and add to the force’s existing capabilities. The mission systems can be used in each of the three helicopter models to reduce the costs of training, and spare parts provision.

At the heart of the mission systems lies the PTANG Operator Workstation, developed by ESG, allowing the Mission Operator to operate all connected systems. The workstation is specifically designed to meet the ergonomic requirements of the operators in different mission scenarios.

The Missions Management System (ESGMM) supports the operator with a fusion of map data, terrain models, real-time video and databases of geo-referenced objects. ESGMM has wide-ranging interfaces to avionic systems such as the Electro-Optical System (EOS), Automated Identification System (AIS), High Definition (HD) Video Downlink, Intercom, Cockpit MFDs, GPS, radar altimeters and FMS. ESG has integrated the new ARGOS-II HD as the EOS.
