OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Commuter Air Technology (CAT), an AGC Aerospace & Defense company, headquartered in Oklahoma City, recently completed a civilian surveillance aircraft integration for the State of Arizona Department of Public Safety(AZDPS) Aviation Unit.
Under the contract, CAT modified a King AirB300 aircraft to enhance the AZDPS efforts of border enforcement, rural search and rescue, and urban tactical tracking. The aircraft was retrofitted with civilian airborne and rescue devices including a new radio and satellite communications suite and a high altitude electro-optical/infrared camera that allows for real time video data links to their headquarters and field units. This airborne surveillance solution supplements the AZDPS helicopter fleet with the ability for greater range and more sustained flights at increased altitudes that are less intrusive on the public.
“CAT is honored to supply the Arizona Department of Public Safety with this enhanced capability in support of their public safety missions,” said Darryl Wilkerson, President of Commuter Air Technology. “This contract expands CAT’s services to the law enforcement market. CAT has been an experienced integrator of King Airs for private, commercial and government customers around the globe. We are thrilled to apply our expertise in support of public safety efforts here at home.”
