MPA & ISR Consultancy

Copernicus Technology provide consultancy services in Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) and Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR).

Our network of MPA professionals has major experience of operating world-wide.

The need for trained, expert MPA & ISR operators is clear. Oceans and seas cover 70% of the globe and 80-90% of international trade travels by Sea, set against a context of an increasingly unpredictable maritime security environment due to piracy, terrorism and the proliferation of nations operating submarines. Whilst existing MPA-capable forces need to maintain their edge, more and more nations are now adding MPA-capability to their armed forces by using a new generation of diverse and flexible ISR aircraft of varying sizes such as the Airbus Military C295, ATR 72 MP, Boeing P-8, Embraer EMB 145 MP, Saab 2000 MPA and the Dassault Falcon 900 MPA.

CTL can add value for nations embarking on MPA programmes for the first time, Defence/Commercial companies developing sensors and platforms for MPA capability and Commercial Maritime Businesses and Maritime Security firms looking to understand the role airborne surveillance can play in enhancing their business.

  • MPA Flying Operations including:
    • Underwater Surveillance/Anti-Submarine Warfare
