Finnish Border Guard improves Dornier 228s

To further improve the surveillance and protection of the Baltic Sea the Finnish Border Guard (FBG) has signed a contract with Swedish Space Corporation (SSC) for phase II in the project that aims to improve the maritime surveillance capacity of FBG's two Dornier aircraft.

An advanced search radar and infrared camera will be integrated with the existing MSS 6000 maritime surveillance system.

The aircraft are used for maritime patrol missions over the Baltic Sea such as border patrol, ship traffic monitoring, monitoring of oil spills and support to search and rescue operations.

During their surveillance flights the Border Guard's Dornier surveillance aircraft detect dozens of illegal oil discharges every year from vessels within the Finnish maritime area and also elsewhere in the Baltic Sea in the context of international cooperation with other Baltic coastal states. Due to its efficiency, the system has also been employed in international surveillance operations coordinated by the EU agency Frontex.

Under the new agreement, the environmental monitoring systems installed in 2007-2009 will now be supplemented to become a fully integrated system incorporating latest-generation surveillance radar and electro-optical camera systems as well as other surveillance sensors and communication systems.

In the standard setup the surveillance system will be operated by two operators but, if necessary, the system will also allow operation of all sensors from one of the consoles located at the front and the rear of the aircraft. The current phase II will be implemented during 2011 and 2012.
