Austrian company Airborne Technologies (Static A6) has been integrating various systems onto large helicopters. For instance, it upgraded an Airbus EC145 used for search and rescue by Kazakhstan, with a new tactical workstation and a video stabilizing unit. The helicopter provides ECS downlink, tactical radio and carbon-fiber brackets for a Wescam MX-10 gimbal and a SX16 searchlight. On another EC145 operated by Norsk Luftambulanse, Airborne certified a Trakka A800 searchlight. The mounting assembly on the outside of the helicopter provides additional room inside the cabin and protects the control unit of the searchlight from harsh weather conditions, Airborne said. The company has also provided several certified systems to equip EC135 police helicopters.
