Sabena delivers Miysis DIRCM-modified 7500
Sabena has carried out a complete system modification campaign to add self-defence system capabilities to a Global 7500. The work was carried out in-house, under full EASA certification standards.
Sabena developed the first EASA STC for Leonardo Miysis DIRCM system installation on a Global 7500.

France-based maintenance and modification centre Sabena technics has successfully delivered a Bombardier Global 7500 to an undisclosed VVIP customer after a complete system modification campaign to add self-defence system (SDS) capabilities.

Sabena technics carried out the entire work in-house, under full EASA certification standards, including development of the first EASA STC for Leonardo Miysis DIRCM system installation on this ultra-long range business jet; complete manufacture and integration of the mechanical and electrical kits; full integration of the system; and test campaigns. The aircraft was delivered on schedule.

Using its strong capabilities and partnerships with leading aircraft system manufacturers, Sabena technics has been taking part in the integration of self-protection systems on various aircraft including C-130 and Boeing and Airbus head of state aircraft.

“This is a great new opportunity to demonstrate the strong know-how we have acquired on aircraft protection system integration. Our growing portfolio of projects indicates our ability to successfully design, manufacture, install and certify any SDS system on any aircraft type with any OEM,” says SVP sales and business development Daniel Soltani.

Sabena technics is an EASA/EMAR Part 21J and 21G organisation able to carry out and certify both minor (through its DOA) and major modifications (supplemental type certificate). Its EASA/EMAR Part 145 capability also allows Sabena technics to offer turnkey solutions projects to its customers worldwide.
