Tecnam P2006T for NASA

 

NASA has selected the Tecnam P2006T twin as the airframe on which it will evaluate the potential of ‘LEAPtech’ (Leading Edge Asynchronous Technology), with the aim of developing safer, more energy efficient, lower operating cost and greener General Aviation aircraft.
LEAPTech is a key element of NASA’s plan to help a significant portion of the general aircraft industry transition to electrical propulsion within the next decade.
NASA will fit an experimental 31-foot aircraft wing with 18 electric motors placed along the leading edge onto a Tecnam P2006T aircraft frame. The wing is made of carbon composite, while the electric engines are powered by lithium iron phosphate batteries. The wing and electric motors will both manufactured and integrated on the P2006T airframe by the US based companies ESAero and Joby Aviation.
Researchers hope to fly the modified Tecnam P2006T piloted X-plane within the next couple years, enabling NASA engineers to easily compare the performance of the X-plane version with the standard Tecnam P2006T Twin.
The Tecnam P2006T Twin has already established itself as the aircraft of choice by many of the world’s leading Flight Training Organisations. Bringing together Italian innovation, engineering and design flair, the P2006T has also been modified and currently undertakes a wide range of aerial missions including for surveillance, observation, surveying, aerial mapping and many other special mission tasks.
Tecnam opened its 21,000 sq ft North American facility at Sebring, FL. In 2014.
The Sebring facility is not only a showroom and delivery center for new Tecnam aircraft but is also an airframe maintenance and training center, as well as the parts warehouse for all North American Tecnam owners.

– Sharing lessons learned in the establishment and modernization of Coast Guard forces.

Joaquín Minguito (Tecnam Aviation´s Business Development Manager) explained in his speech the operational results of the missions performed by the Tecnam MRI in the last two years: Indalo Operation, Perseus Project and the next operations we will be involved in.

11th Annual Coastal Surveillance Conference- Singapore

Dear Friend,

We have been sponsor of the 11th Annual Coastal Surveillance conference that took place at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. With more than 250+ top representatives from over 110 navies, coast guards, military and maritime security organizations in Asia and beyond that have been present in this call.

This was the third time that we attended this Conference. The first year we showed a project, the second time we presented our first deployment in a real mission and this year we were proud to say that we have more than 1.000 hours of Real Missions and that we have deployed a full System in South Africa. We highlighted our results during the Indalo Operation, the Perseus Program and our colaboration with the Guarda Nacional Republicana from Portugal and the Spanish Guardia Civil among others.

Thanks for your attention and if you want to know more about it you can visit our website www.tecnamaviation.es.

First MRI launched in South Africa

 

We are pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with a leading South African security company, regarding the successful MRI aerial surveillance system.

The agreement includes the sale of a complete aerial and ground system that will be delivered in record time, in view of the urgent need for such a system for both terrestrial and maritime surveillance and has both civil and military applications.

MRI in Volo Sportivo

 

We would like to hugely thank from here to the Volo Sportivo magazine for this excellent article about the MRI and its utilities in maritime surveillance.

The article, appeared in the november issue of the magazine, contains an extensive review of all technical features of the P2006T, and explains why it’s a perfect solution for maritime surveillance equipment.
