Eurosatory 2018: Daher offering ISR variants of TBM 910, 930

Daher has announced the development of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) versions of its TBM 910 and TBM 930 single-engine turboprops.

Daher has announced the development of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) versions of its TBM 910 and TBM 930 single-engine turboprops.

The new version features hard points wired for carriage of sensors and cameras. The configuration has already been tested across the flight envelope using a 50kg ultra-high-definition camera.

The TBM 910, launched in April 2017, is equipped with Garmin’s G1000 NXi all-glass avionics suite controlled by a physical keypad, while the TBM 930, introduced in 2016, features Garmin’s G3000 touchscreen-controlled glass flight deck.

Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of Daher's Airplane business unit, says the ISR version offers operators a fast, all-weather surveillance capability at a highly competitive cost-performance ratio compared with existing solutions. Chabbert sees the new version as a complement to MALE remotely piloted platforms or heavier manned aircraft, offering a reduced logistics footprint and ease of deployment.

The ISR variants can also carry a multi-sensor optronics turret, SAR/GMTI radar, signals intelligence system and secure transmission systems. A console can be installed behind the pilot for a systems operator to monitor the tactical situation.

The aircraft can be rapidly reconfigured for conventional missions, such as VIP transport, cargo or medical evacuation.
