Under the $1 billion Project Sentinel contract, which started in 2008 and runs until 2021, Cobham Aviation Services supplied, modified and integrated the on-board mission systems for 10 Dash 8 maritime surveillance aircraft, and now operates and maintains the aircraft.
The program is the world’s largest outsourced maritime surveillance operation. It provides all-weather, day-and-night electronic surveillance of Australia’s 15-million-square-kilometre maritime exclusive economic zone.
Cobham’s activity in South Australia is concentrated on aircraft modification, heavy maintenance and integration, and operational control for its Australian-based business units.
