Indonesian N219 Turboprop Aircraft will be converted into a maritime surveillance aircraft (MSA) with the integration of MSA mission systems made by a local firm, PT Infoglobal Teknologi Semesta.

PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI) and PT Infoglobal Teknologi Semesta/Infoglobal signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on cooperation in the integration of maritime surveillance aircraft (MSA) mission systems on N219 aircraft.

The MoU document was signed by PTDI's Director of Commerce, Technology & Development, Gita Amperiawan and President Director of Infoglobal, Adi Sasongko, at PTDI's Second Production Area, Bandung on December 8.

With this cooperation, the N219 aircraft will be developed with a special design as a maritime surveillance aircraft or MSA. The mission system of Infoglobal that had previously been installed on the Navy's NC212 Maritime Patrol (Patmar) aircraft will then be further developed for use in the N219 MSA aircraft produced by PTDI.

Infoglobal is a company engaged in combat/military avionics, radar data processing, weapon control systems and defense application software.

"The N219 aircraft can enter the market with various variantssuch as  for passengers, medevac, cargo, with this collaboration N219 in the future can be for MSA missions, both for military and commercial as well" said Director of Commerce, Technology &Development of PTDI, Gita Amperiawan.

In MPA form, the N219 will conduct maritime control, including the detection and identification features of ship targets, the ability to calculate positions, speed and dynamic target headings that can then display SAR routes and send surveillance results to the nearest ground station. The development of the MSA configuration on the N219 aircraft is expected to encourage PTDI in meeting the needs of the MSA market both domestic and international, she said.
