The Police Mission System Design team are adept in taking a CONOPS challenge and designing a full, law enforcement, ISR architecture that can be deployed on fixed wing types (such as the King Air, Vulcanair, Islander, DA-20) or rotary types (such as the Airbus H145, H135, AW169 or Bell 429)
At the core of the Police Mission System Design capability is our ISO9001, UK CAA Part 21 J & G, approved organisation that undertakes a broad range of aircraft design and production services to supply avionic, structural design and certification to a wide variety of defence, law enforcement and survey clients. The team has worked with a large cross section of customers on a wide variety of applications which include:
Our extensive range of police and law enforcement modifications for application on border monitoring, missing persons, police intelligence, crowd observation, passive standoff, road & traffic operations and counter-terrorist operations include:
Too often we hear from those who have commissioned aviation mission system design projects only to find that a simple Minor Change has turned into a monster project.
We are firmly of the belief that engaging in open and honest discussions with all stakeholders helps us to set clear expectations and provide expert guidance from the start, avoiding the problem of scope creep. To assure a timely, planned and controlled process we aim to assist our customers in making the correct design decisions using our established methodology, whilst ensuring compliance with all regulatory, statutory and legal requirements. Our design process is defined by gateways as illustrated below.
We see our job as a partner to the Project Team, helping the Project Team to navigate the design process to ensure that the solution meets the CONOPS requirements and provides a sustainable solution for Police, Law Enforcement, Border Control and National Security agencies.
From complete mission interior changes to a NVIS lighting upgrades we have it covered. We also design and manufacture bespoke mission architectures, rear operator consoles to reduce rear operator fatigue and stowages to meet our clients’ CONOPS requirements.
Typical Cabin Interior projects undertaken by our Design & Production Team include:
Using the latest 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, our team are ready to support you in all of your mechanical design needs. Modifications and repairs typically require mechanical design. The team are experienced in all aspects from technical survey, initial hand calculations, through detail design development to creation of production drawings and computer aided manufacturing data.
Examples of projects and additional services covered by our Mechanical Team include:
Using the latest Electrical Computer Aided Design (ECAD) software, our team are ready to support you in all of your electrical design needs. Modifications and repairs with electrical aspects will involve numerous assessments, such as power distribution, electrical load analysis and electromagnetic compatibility.
Typical projects undertaken by our Electrical Team include:
Our assembly shop floor has been laid out to ensure that the creation and production of parts follows a lean process. We have the capability to assemble components of any weight and size both mechanical and electrical. All assembled parts are fully inspected and released with either a Form One or C of C.
Typical assembly work undertaken by us includes:
As an approved design and production organisation certification is at the heart of everything we do here at Gama. We are experienced in producing both Major & Minor Changes and Repairs that are either approved or accepted by the various National Aviation Authorities (NAA’s) across the world.
With over 1700 Minor Changes & Repairs and 70+ STC’s within our portfolio we often have an off-the-shelf design solution to fit your particular needs.
However, we also realise that not every aircraft is the same and every project is different, if we don’t have a pre-existing design we have the capability and approvals to produce a new Change or Repair to support your particular aircraft and operation.
Our core certification activity includes:
