 The test mission of the OPALE (Optional Piloted Aircraft Long Endurance) system at the Norwegian training area Rena Range impressively demonstrated that the system fulfils challenging requirements even in the initial implementation phase.


 The DA42 OPALE is a combined aviation-based surveillance product which was jointly developed by Diamond Aircraft and Rheinmetall Defence Electronic. The system had to perform various reconnaissance tasks within its participation in the largest aviation exercise of the NATO this year, from September 1 thru 14, 2007 in Norway . The result was a big success. The system confirmed its capabilities at a challenging international level.

Currently OPALE is in preparation for further sensors. The ongoing developments will guarantee that the system makes a great contribution towards the enhancement of the spectrum of mission capabilities of ISR sensors (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) in standardized, networked systems.
