Delivery of a third upgraded ATL2

Click Here to see the Full/Original Article

The upgrade work is performed by Dassault Aviation and Thales (co-contractors), in association with Naval Group and in cooperation with SIAé. Architect of the combat system, Dassault Aviation is as well responsible for development of the core system including the operational software designed by Naval Group. Dassault Aviation is also in charge of overall integration of all subsystems.

The standard 6 upgrade will improve the ATL2s’ capability to support the Strategic Ocean Force and the Naval Air Group of the aircraft carrier Charles-de-Gaulle, to deal with modern threats (future nuclear or conventional submarines, naval forces, etc.) and to support air-land missions, until 2030.

France is one of the very few countries designing and producing high-technology maritime patrol aircraft combining detection (optronics, radar, acoustics) with a variety of weapons (anti-ship missiles, torpedoes, laser-guided weapons).
