ATR 42 MP
The ATR 42 MP is a derivative of the proven ATR 42 / 72 twin turboprop aircraft family, specifcally based on the latest ATR 42-600 airframe and designed to
perform a wide range of special missions. Through a number of mission specifc systems/features, the aircraft provides outstanding capabilities in Surveillan-
ce/Reconnaissance, Exclusive Economic Zone patrol and Search And Rescue duties. Because it can be easily reconfgured, the ATR 42 MP also doubles as an
efective multi-purpose transport aircraft.
The ATR 42 MP inherits the exceptional characteristics of the basic platform, including the structure designed to meet the latest damage tolerance require-
ments and characterized by high corrosion resistance and extensive use of composites. The MP structure is modifed for sensor installation and to introduce
specifc mission-related features including bubble windows and in-fight operable hatch (or door).
The ATR 42 MP can easily operate in extreme temperatures, altitudes and environmental conditions; it can safely take of and land on short and narrow
runways. These features, combined with the Hotel Mode function, enable it to use remote bases where only limited support is available.
The aircraft is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW 127M turboprops, each with 2,400 sHP continuous power rating, retained during one engine ino-
perative take-of. Each engine is ftted with a Hamilton Sundstrand 568F six-blade, variable-pitch propeller.
The new standard avionic suite includes a glass cockpit fight deck featuring fve LCD screens. Designed to meet the most exacting customer requirements, it
is based on state-of-the-art components with specifc enhancements for the MP role.
Because crew comfort is crucial to efectiveness during long endurance missions, the ATR 42 MP is designed with this goal in mind. Specifc noise/vibration
reduction features, optimized ECS, abundant internal space, adjustable seats, fully equipped galley and toilet endow the ATR 42 MP with outstanding levels of comfort.

MISSION SYSTEM
The open architecture Mission System ofers inherent mission fexibility, while the extensive use of COTS components guarantees state-of-the-art Human Ma-
chine Interface, graphics capability and computer throughput performance. The Mission System is based on two removable, interchangeable tactical operator
stations equipped with multifunction, integrated display and control units, signifcantly reducing dedicated control panels and monitors and maximizing fexi-
bility in crew task allocation.
The main Mission System task is to control and monitor the sensors which collect, analyze, fuse, record and distribute all available data.
Functions supported by the Mission System include active and passive electronic surveillance, optical reconnaissance in the visible and infrared band, vessel
identifcation, pollution detection, mission planning, airdrop support.
Two fat displays linked to the Mission System are installed respectively in the cockpit and debriefng area to allow other crew members to follow the tactical
situation from these locations.

Search Radar
The ATR 42 MP Search Radar is a multi-
mode, X-band unit optimized for 360
long-range target detection, tracking
and identifcation. It is designed for
operations against sea surface targets,
but also provides air-to-air and weather
modes and SAR, ISAR and MTI capabili-
ties.The embedded Track While Scan fe-
ature allows one hundred targets to be
tracked simultaneously.
Automatic Identifcation System
(AIS)
The system identifes and locates any
target equipped with an operating AIS
transponder, be it a ship, an aircraft or a
helicopter. Its data contribute to create
the tactical situation produced by the
Mission System, complementing Search
Radar information. It is especially useful
during sealane monitoring, EEZ patrol
and SAR missions.
Direction Finder (DF)
The DF is a V/UHF 360 Direction Fin-
ding device which locates the direction
of radio emitters in the MHz to 470 MHz
frequency range.
Electro-Optical Turret
The Electro-Optical Turret provides pas-
sive target detection and identifcation
capabilities in any light condition by
grouping in a single stabilized assembly
optical sensors operating in both the
infra-red and visible spectrums. The tur-
ret operates over 360 in azimuth and in
a wide elevation range. It can be slaved
to the Search Radar to support optical
identifcation of the detected targets. The
specifc sensors integrated in the turret
can be tailored to customer needs.
Electronic Support Measures Electronic Support Measures
(ESM) (ESM)
The ESM system provides long range, all
weather, radar emitting targets detec-
tion, classifcation and identifcation,
including loading/recording of related-
data. It includes six passive antennas
installed in positions providing 360 installed in positions providing 360
coverage of the area around the aircraft, coverage of the area around the aircraft,
linked to a Wide Open receiver.
Side Looking Airborne Radar (SLAR) Side Looking Airborne Radar (SLAR)
This radar allows long-range detection
of sea pollution (such as oil slicks) and-
monitoring of underwater activities monitoring of underwater activities
close to the sea surface. Its antennas, in close to the sea surface. Its antennas, in-
stalled in the rear fuselage, can monitor stalled in the rear fuselage, can monitor
areas extending up to 75 km from either areas extending up to 75 km from either
side of the aircraft. side of the aircraft.
Hyper Spectral Scanner (HSS)
The Hyper Spectral Scanner identifes
pollution agent types. This passive sen-
sor operates in the IR, visible and UV
frequency ranges and requires the ai-
rcraft to fy directly over the area to be
monitored.
