Fixed wing search and rescue

Cobham Aviation Services will provide a turn-key SAR capability for the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) from August 2016.


AMSA is responsible for the provision of SAR in Australia and Australia's SAR zone encompasses more than 10% of the earth's surface.  AMSA utilises aircraft based in strategic locations across Australia to perform SAR tasks such as searching for missing people, locating activated distress beacons, providing communications support at an incident and dropping survival equipment to people in distress.


Cobham is currently modifying four Bombardier Challenger CL-604 special mission jet aircraft to provide a search and rescue capability for AMSA over land and at sea. These aircraft will be modified to meet Australian requirements and fitted with latest generation direction finding, radar, EO/IR and video anomaly sensors integrated into a mission management system, high-vision windows and air operable doors for aerial delivery of life saving equipment.
