Saab 2000 MPA

The Saab 2000 that will be displayed at RIAT 2012 will represent a high speed, long endurance maritime patrol aircraft whose primary function is as a security and surveillance platform.

SAAB intend for the aircraft to be equipped with advanced sensors for detecting, classifying and identifying surface and subsurface targets. Offering intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance, maritime patrol and enforcement options, the aircraft will be capable of either working alone or together with other assets.

With a range of 2,000 nautical miles and a flying time in excess of nine hours, the Saab 2000 MPA is intended to encompass all the key ingredients of a successful maritime patrol aircraft: long range, long endurance, fast transit time, high dash speed and long time on station.
