Common Atomics Aeronautical Methods, Inc. (GA-ASI) options an precise SeaGuardian® Unmanned Plane System as a part of its show on the Doha Worldwide Maritime Defence Exhibition and Convention (DIMDEX). DIMDEX is organized by the Qatar Armed Forces and can be held on the Qatar Nationwide Conference Middle on March 21-23, 2022. The GA-ASI stand positioned at H6-121B and SeaGuardian close by at H3-400. SeaGuardian is being included as a part of the GA-ASI show because of the robust international and regional curiosity within the MQ-9B line. SeaGuardian is the maritime model of GA-ASI’s MQ-9B SkyGuardian®. The Qatar authorities is thinking about procuring MQ-9B to help their nationwide safety and protection.

“SeaGuardian offers persistent multi-domain situational consciousness over land, sea and undersea, which is important to our companions within the Center East area,” stated GA-ASI Senior Director of Strategic Communications & Advertising C. Mark Brinkley. “SeaGuardian is a essential safety instrument and GA-ASI is proud to construct on our relationship with Qatar by placing the plane on show at DIMDEX.”


GA-ASI SeaGuardian Unmanned Plane System

The MQ-9B line of UAS present industry-leading endurance and interoperability with allied companions. What differentiates SeaGuardian is its superior maritime Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) functionality, which encompasses a multi-mode maritime surface-search radar with Inverse Artificial Aperture Radar imaging mode, an Automated Identification System (AIS) receiver, Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) capabilities, and a Excessive-Definition, Full-Movement Video sensor geared up with optical and infrared cameras. The identical SeaGuardian plane on show at DIMDEX was used a number of months in the past as a part of a five-week demonstrations sequence with the Royal Air Power.

The flights showcased SeaGuardian’s array of maritime capabilities, together with ASW tasking and manned-unmanned teaming with an RAF P-8 plane. The UAS flew extensively in UK-controlled airspace, constructing the muse for acceptance of unmanned plane working routinely in unsegregated airspace. Along with the maritime patrol radar, AIS and ASW capabilities, the SeaGuardian contains an Digital Assist Measures (ESM) payload that’s built-in into the plane’s winglets. The ESM payload offers detection, identification, and geolocation of RF emitters and is effective for long-range ISR missions.
