Efficient,High Precision Intelligence

Our flagship manned aircraft based on a British-built Britten Norman Islander with twin Rolls-Royce turbine engines. The airframe is modified with military and dual-use equipment to provide a high-quality, value-for-money law enforcement ISR asset with standard fit hard points. With the additional ability to deploy paratroopers, this is an extremely capable airborne asset. 

This is a high performance EASA and FAA certified airframe with military grade EO/IR sensors, optical and SAR radar and GSM interception. SECINT-SIRRUSH is designed for hostile land operations and marine protection.  The product is supplied with OEM training for both airframe, sensors, and intelligence analysis. The baseline platform has been operational for many years with hundreds of airframes in existence in different roles.
