Upgrades for improved performance and longer service life

Air forces and civilian task forces need state-of-the-art aircraft and helicopters - this is the only way to carry out successful missions. With tailor-made upgrades we increase the performance of air systems and ensure the longest possible service life.

Emergency forces can only successfully carry out their demanding missions with modern equipped air system. Upgrades are becoming increasingly important, especially for institutional customers, because in the face of scarce public funds, aircraft and helicopters often remain in service longer than initially planned when they were purchased. We offer our customers a comprehensive range of upgrades.

Anti-collision warning systems

We contribute to cockpit safety by integrating anti-collision warning systems. They are designed to warn of potential collision threats.

Forward Looking Infrared

Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) are mounted on the outside of the helicopter and are used to locate missing persons or secure perimeters.

Helmet Mounted Displays

Visual cues are projected on a helmet-mounted display so that important flight data such as spatial awareness or obstacles are directly visible.
