The Special Airborne Mission Installation and Response (SABIR) System, developed by the Airdyne Aerospace Inc, is a mounting system for the C-130 Hercules family consisting of a modified paratroop door and articulating strut for quick roll-on / no scar aircraft configuration. The system, which can be installed or uninstalled by 2 people, provides a 400 pound payload capacity and multi-mission payload pod using a standard BRU-12 interface.

THE PHILIPPINE AIR FORCE FINALLY GOT A PROPER MARITIME PATROL AIRCRAFT

http://airdyne.org/the-philippine-air-force-finally-got-a-proper-maritime-patrol-aircraft/

Finally, after a lot of delays and roadblocks along the way, the Philippine Air Force (PAF) can now really say that it got itself a proper Maritime Patrol Aircraft. This is after decades of not having one in its inventory.

A photo from Philippine Plane Spotters Group (PPSG) revealed the modifications made on one of the PAF’s Lockheed C-130T Hercules heavy tactical transport aircraft, which was seen with a protrusion near the rear paratroop door, and an oversized door glass in it.



The PAF’s C-130T with tail number 5040 was seen in Mactan-Cebu International Airport with what appears to be a SABIR system and a sensor pod on the starboard side. Cropped from original photo by Darvs Bautista, posted at Philippine Plane Spotters Group (PPSG) Facebook page.

ELM-2022 ML - Lightweight Airborne Maritime Surveillance Radar

General

The ELM-2022ML is a lightweight X-Band multimode airborne maritime surveillance radars combining advanced technology and features derived from extensive operational experience of the ELM-2022 radar family with reduced weight (50 kg) and power requirements (1 kW).

The ELM-2022ML radar provides a very cost-effective force-multiplier solution for operational missions in the maritime theater, such as:

Maritime surveillance and EEZ patrol
Coast guard drug enforcement and fishery patrol
Search and rescue location and support
Air-to-air surveillance
Air-to-ground (SAR and GMTI) surveillance

The ELM-2022ML radar operates as a true all-weather, day and night sensor capable of penetrating clouds, rain, smoke, smog, fog.

Modular hardware, flexible interfaces and antenna design, enable the ELM-2022ML radar, which consists of only 2 LRUs, to be installed on a wide range of fixed-wing and rotary-wing, manned and unmanned aircraft, including small platforms for which the installation of the standard ELM- 2022 may be difficult.

Features

Long-range maritime surveillance, up to 160 nm (large targets up to horizon)
Detection of small targets in adverse sea conditions
Automatic tracking of all detected targets
Range profile, ISAR and CSAR classification modes, with automatic classification to class (ISAR library)
Strip and spot Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imaging and GMTI as ISR support for ground operation
Navigation and weather mode
Integrated IFF/AIS system
Advanced Radar Operation Station (AROS) – optional for standalone operation (not included in weight)

US turns over P807M worth of SABIR system

The United States government on Tuesday turned over a US$15.1 million (PhP807 million) worth of sophisticated Special Airborne Mission Installation and Response (SABIR) system aimed to improve the surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).

< Edited >

“The transfer of the SABIR system today, along with the Scan Eagle system this past March, and the C-208 aircraft in August 2017, represents our steadfast commitment to enhancing the capabilities of the Armed Forces of the Philippines,” Kim said.

The Mactan-based Philippine Air Force (PAF) 300 Air Intelligence and Security Wing (300 AISW) will operate the SABIR system.

The 300 AISW provides the PAF with near-real-time intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities through both manned and unmanned aircraft, including the SABIR system, Scan Eagle Unmanned Aerial System, and the C-208 aircraft, all donated by the United States government over the past year.

In a statement, the US Embassy said the SABIR system will increase the Philippine military’s maritime domain awareness, airborne command and control, counterterrorism, and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) capabilities.

The system is a bolt-on avionics module for the C-130 Hercules aircraft. It upgrades the aircraft with advanced command and control, communications, computer, and surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities without sacrificing the aircraft’s primary function as a cargo plane.

The turn over of the SABIR system was made possible thru the Maritime Security Funding (MSI), a US-initiative to build the maritime capacity of Southeast Asian nations.

According to the US Embassy, the P807 million includes the cost of training, installation, and sustainment support in addition to the equipment itself.

In February 2018, the 300 AISW was upgraded from a Group to a Wing to support the growing requirements of new platforms and equipment arriving from U.S. grant-funded programs like the MSI.
