Boeing completes MSA systems testbed trials

US based manufacturer Boeing has recently completed missions systems and sensor installation of the Bombardier Challenger 604 Maritime Surveillance Aircraft (MSA) test bed, ahead of ground and flight trials which in turn will lead onto customer demonstrations. The MSA is basically for those operators looking for a maritime surveillance platform but without the high-end anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare capabilities. In terms of the global market for the MSA, Boeing is looking at a potential for USD10 billion in sales over the next decade, with between 125 and 150 aircraft of this type needing to be replaced over the same time period.
