ESG Mission Systems for Bundespolizei Helicopters
ESG, January 28, 2020 - After the successful integration of the new mission management system on EC135, AS332 and EC155 helicopters for the German Federal Police, ESG Elektroniksystem- und Logistik-GmbH delivered the first system to its customer - further deliveries follow in 2020.

The new mission systems will extend the wide range of capability options of the German Federal Police, such as surveillance, reconnaissance, border control, anti-terrorism and sea rescue and add to the forces´ existing capabilities.

The mission systems can be used in each of the three helicopter models to reduce the costs of training, and spare parts provision.

At the heart of the mission systems lies the PTANG Operator Workstation (“Polizeitaktischer Arbeitsplatz neuester Generation”), developed by ESG, that allows the Mission Operator to operate all connected systems.

The workstation is specifically designed to meet the ergonomic requirements of the operators in different mission scenarios. The "ESGMM" Missions Management System supports the operator with a fusion of map data, terrain models, real-time video and databases of geo-referenced objects.

The ESGMM has wide-ranging interfaces to avionic systems such as the Electro-Optical System (EOS), Automated Identification System (AIS) , High Definition (HD) Video Downlink, Intercom, Cockpit MFDs, GPS, radar altimeters and FMS. ESG has integrated the new ARGOS-II HD as the EOS.

EASA Certification for Search Light Trakka TLX on EC135

ESG delivered first modified system to a German customer and proves its capabilities as a leading aviation engineering company.

ESG`s existing EASA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for High-Performance Searchlights was extended for Trakka Systems´ new High-Performance Search Light “TLX”.

In Autumn 2019 ESG realized the successful delivery of the first modified helicopter to a German customer.
The new “TLX” provides more light output at less electrical power and weight. The new design reduces maintenance for lower live-cycle cost.

ESG’s “TLX”-integration kit comprises all parts and equipment required for integration - all kit-components are delivered with EASA Form 1 and associated documents which enable EASA Part 145 organizations to integrate the STC’d Kit into their EC135 helicopters.

ESG also has established in-country repair capabilities for the “TLX” and its predecessor, the established “A800”, with its EASA Part 145-certified product support center.

In order to provide the best possible support to its customers, ESG has developed a broad spectrum of STCs such as for High-Performance HD EOS, Mission Mangement System Workstations, Digital Map installation, Tactical Cockpit MFD installation.
