Final CN235 delivered to Mexico

Final CN235 delivered to Mexico

EADS North America has announced that it has delivered the fourth and final Airbus Military CN235-300 Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) to be supplied to the Mexican Navy under a US Coast Guard managed foreign military sales (FMS) agreement. The company made the announcement 15 May, 2012.

Mexico was the first US FMS customer for the Airbus Military CN235 tactical airlifter, which is designed for a range of missions, including search and rescue, disaster relief and drug interdiction. EADS North America is also supplying spares provisioning, ground support equipment and associated training for the Mexican Navy aircraft.

The MPA configuration of the CN235 incorporates ‘the latest technology developed for surveillance over the sea’. The aircraft features a Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) system and search radar, to allow the aircraft to locate and track ships to conduct thorough patrols of a coastline. It also has an Automatic Identification System (AIS) and Fully Integrated Tactical System (FITS), which enables that data gathered by the aircraft’s onboard sensors can be used by the crew to execute their mission.
