Air Multi Mission Surveillance Solutions in the Current Situational Awareness Domain
Airborne surveillance systems greatly contribute to situational awareness. The domain of the situational awareness grows in relevance to the constant evolution of surveillance technology and the needs for more flexible platforms able to perform different tasks and missions or even to behave autonomously. A significant application of airborne surveillance is the patrolling of the maritime environment. The state of the art of the airborne surveillance systems changed in the last years, following the requirements of Nations and of Multi-National Groups, from Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) towards a Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft (MMA), that is the top of nowadays surveillance aircraft technology. The missions and the tasks, in which a patrolling aircraft can be involved, cover a wide variety of scopes and applications, embracing both maritime and ground surveillance and including critical activities, such as the migration control. The technology evolution of airborne surveillance systems is strictly connected to the roadmap from manned to unmanned air vehicles, for which the human factor remains a fundamental component in planning, supervision to the mission and, above all, the reaction to unforeseen and unexpected situations. This paper presents how a cutting edge airborne surveillance systems can support both manned and unmanned aircrafts in the future surveillance operative scenarios.
