RCAF receives first Aurora with new satellite comms system

MP Aerospace delivered the first of three CP-140M Aurora aircraft fitted with an Interim Beyond Line of Sight (IBLOS) satellite communications system to the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) on December 15, 2014.
The prototype CP-140M Aurora aircraft will provide an improved Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) capability in support of Canada’s military requirements internationally. Working with Department of National Defence personnel, IMP Aerospace provided the installation design and modification of the IBLOS system in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The system enables secure, high-speed data streaming from the aircraft via satellite in areas which are remote from familiar ground stations.
