A Bombardier Global 7500 has been delivered by Sabena technics to an undisclosed VVIP customer following a complete system modification campaign that added self-defence system (SDS) capabilities.
The aircraft was delivered on schedule. Sabena technics carried out all the work in-house, under full EASA certification standards. It shared that the scope included the development of an EASA STC for Leonardo Miysis DIRCM system installation on the jet; as well as the complete manufacture and integration of the mechanical and electrical kits; full integration of the system; and test campaigns.
Sabena technics has taken part in integrating self-protection systems on various aircraft, including C-130, Boeing and Airbus types.
“This is a great new opportunity to demonstrate the strong know-how we have acquired on aircraft protection system integration,” said Daniel Soltani, SVP, sales and business development at Sabena technics. “Our growing portfolio of projects indicates our ability to successfully design, manufacture, install and certify any SDS system on any aircraft type with any OEM.”
Sabena technics is an EASA/EMAR Part 21J and 21G organisation able to carry out and certify both minor (through its DOA) and major modifications (STC). The EASA/EMAR Part 145 capability also allows Sabena technics to offer turnkey solution projects to its customers worldwide.
