Rotorcraft Services Group (Booth No. N4235) recently completed the design, manufacture and installation of advanced mission equipment on a newly acquired Eurocopter EC135 for the police department in Japan’s Fukui prefecture. The modular package included dual multi-spectral electro-optical systems, digital datalink capability, a stabilized high-intensity searchlight system and a high-powered external public address system.
The Fukui PD EC135 will be used for ground surveillance, air patrol, search and rescue, environmental research and pollution-control operations, according to the company.
Rotorcraft Services also completed its first two Bell 429 VIP interior installations and exterior paint applications. After receiving the aircraft in December 2012, RSG turned around both helicopters in less than two months, delivering the first aircraft to a customer in Latin America in January. The second helicopter recently departed for delivery in Europe.
