The C295 MPA is a multirole maritime patrol aircraft derived from the C295 military transport aircraft. It has been developed by Airbus Military, a unit of Airbus. Equipped with a new generation mission system, the aircraft can conduct maritime patrol, anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (ASuW) missions. In May 2010, Airbus Military conducted the first torpedo launch from a C295 MPA aircraft. In July 2010, the anti-submarine variant was certified by the Spanish authority INTA for its military airworthiness. As of November 2011, Airbus Military sold 85 C295 aircraft across 12 countries. In October 2007, Airbus Military signed a contract with the Chilean Navy for three C295 MPAs with an option for five more. The Chilean Navy received the first of the three aircraft in April 2010. In April 2011, the Chilean Navy received the first C295 ASW after INTA certification. In November 2011, the Mexican Air Force ordered five C295 aircraft. Four of them will be used by the Mexican Navy. The design of the C295 MPA is based on the airframe of C295 military transport aircraft. The design incorporates a few components in a simple system architecture to achieve weight reduction. The landing gear is designed to allow take-off and landing operations on unprepared and short airfields. Underwing hardpoints are provided for carrying the weapon systems as well as reconnaissance / jamming pods and search lights. The rear ramp of the aircraft allows the transport of standard 88" x 108" pallets and bulk cargo, avoiding the need to remove the operator consoles. The aircraft also supports the deployment of palletised mission systems. It can launch search and rescue rafts, emergency equipment and parachutists. C295 MPA is a versatile aircraft capable of serving a range of mission requirements. It is deployed in military transport, maritime patrol, EEZ (exclusive economic zone) surveillance, search and rescue missions (SAR), ASW, AsuW, signals intelligence (SIGINT), imagery intelligence (IMINT), law enforcement and marine pollution control missions. The C295 MPA is fitted with an advanced integrated avionics system. The avionics suite consists of four liquid crystal displays and associated control units. A set of geophysical sensors provide attitude, heading and air data information. Other subsystems include an AHRS (attitude and heading reference system), an ADS (air data system), a FMS (flight management system) and an automatic flight control system. The aircraft is fitted with a fully integrated tactical system (FITS) for mission control. The system comprises a range of sensors and components including search radar, electro-optic / infrared sensors (EO/IR), electronic support measures (ESM) / an electronic intelligence system (ELINT), COMINT, a magnetic anomaly detector (MAD), an IFF interrogator, a SATCOM, a datalink and a Link-11. Other subsystems include acoustics systems, an automatic identification system (ais) and sea pollution detection systems. The FITS ASW version underwent operational evaluation (OPEVAL) and conducted anti-submarine and anti-surface missions during Nato exercises.
