Tecnam P2012 SENTINEL SMP Rolls Out

P2012 Sentinel SMP (Special Mission Platform) Offers Multi-Mission Capabilities

Tecnam's new P2012 Sentinel SMP is readying to tackle the Special Mission Platform Market...

The P2012 Sentinel SMP, compared to their P2006T Twin SMP, integrates higher payloads, additional operator and observer stations and new capabilities, including approval for FIKI (Flight Into Known Icing), while also improving mission efficiency.

The operator may benefit from increased range, endurance, cabin volume and crew space.

TECNAM has undertaken a program with L3 HARRIS Wescam MX - series Electro Optical Sensors optimized integration. This will greatly improve the law-enforcement mission efficiency when performed with the P2012 Sentinel, and offers the capability of accommodating (in addition to one Wescam MX-10, MX-15 or MX-20 turret) other mission sensors such as a SAR Radar, providing the P2012 SMP with the mission capabilities normally pertaining to CS/FAR 25 platforms at a fraction of their acquisition and operating costs.

The high cabin volume and payload will allow for space for sensor installation and an operators console. A TECNAM Sentinel equipped with full mission equipment, at its maximum takeoff weight of 3680 kg, will provide up to 9 hours' endurance for up to six 90kg-crew members, sensor operators and observers.

The P2012 twin-engine design also provides an exhaust-free field of view to the sensors, granting increased accuracy and "noise-free" operations. Moreover, the hatches' position under the fuselage ensures a carbon-monoxide-free cabin that will enhance the safety of the crew members (one or two pilots and up to 5 mission operators).

TECNAM has anticipated future additional requirements with the offering of a quick-conversion kit that transforms it from Special Mission Platform to Airline version, providing up to 11 seats and the consolidated P2012 Traveller transport capabilities.

Giovanni Pascale Langer, TECNAM Managing Director, said: "TECNAM is very proud to expand the Special Mission Platform offer with a high-performance but still cost-efficient solution to the market. Here at TECNAM, we all recognize the importance of providing a high-capability platform that will allow our customers to perform aerial surveys and mapping as well as protect borders, save lives, and detect criminal operations. Our effort has been focused on the development of a system with higher-class capabilities at a fraction of their acquisition price, making such vital services accessible to those countries and operators that simply couldn't afford them before."
