The Thales proposal consists of sensors, radar components, electronic support measures, and the Airborne Maritime Situation Control System (AMASCOS
system integrates Ocean Master search radar, electronic-support measures, the Chlio forward-looking infrared (FLIR) camera, and the Gemini navigation computer.
The 22.5-tonne ATR72 is being further developed for both antisurface vessel and anti-submarine roles, equipped with the Thales Amascos
mission system, including the Ocean Master radar.
The four aircraft will be fitted with the Airborne Maritime Situation Control System 300 (AMASCOS
300) under a $150 million contract to Thomson-CSF of France.
The P 99 proposed for Brazil has a Thales Amascos
mission system, including Ocean Master radar and Agile flir.
Designated as DR 3000A systems, these equipments will form part of a complete mission avionics update for the two aircraft, which will see the introduction of Thomson's Amascos
antisubmarine warfare (ASW) suite.
