History

The TECNAM SMP is based on the revolutionary aircraft TECNAM P2006T is is today the only twin engine aircraft that can fully match all the special missions purposes due to its characteristics, in particular:

  • Fully CS/FAR 23 IFR certified – both analogue and glass cockpit available and validated in many foreign countries in addition to EU/US.
  • Low acquisition cost.
  • Single pilot operations approved also in IFR.
  • Extremely low operation and maintenance costs.
  • High flexibility with both Aviation and Automotive fuel (up to 10% ethanol content) approved, also mixed in any ratio
  • High payload capacity with special weight saving program
  • Wide speed range (cruise from 55 to 145 kts)
  • Possibility to be equipped with a wide range of payload/sensors
  • Operations from semi-prepared fields and extremely low take off and landing distances (1470ft-448mt and 1050ft-320mt respectively over/ from 50’ obstacle)
  • Wide room for passenger(s) which allows the installation of a comfortable working station (operator’s desk)
  • No view obstruction for cameras and sensors, even during 30° turning due to the high wing
  • All removable seats that allow to further increase the internal volumes;

The Tecnam P2006T SMP allows the unique chance to have a platform ready for third parties sensors integration:

  • The aircraft is available with multiple factory approved holes, up to three hatches in one platform;
  • Multiple sockets power box, with 40 Amp/ 28 VDC available for mission purposes;
  • Turnkey solution (to be approached on a single Scope of Work basis) will allow to avoid third parties involved in STCs: Tecnam can offer a flexible choice with basic airframe+electrical power up to the turnkey solution. Customer can better focus on its main business with this approach, dealing only with the OEM;

the Platform

TWIN ENGINE

Tecnam P2006T is a twin-engine four-seat aircraft equipped with two four-cylinder four-stroke Rotax 912S3 liquid cooled engines of 100hp (73kW) each with an exceptional TBO of 2000 hours.

HIGH WING

The high-wing configuration offers stability, cabin comfort and excellent visibility.

PAYLOAD CAPACITY

P2006T is a robust yet very light airframe, resulting in an outstanding payload-to-total-weight ratio.

FULLY RETRACTABLE LANDING GEAR

The fully retractable landing gear allows the installation of multiple sensors on the belly avoiding reflections, obstacles and interferences thus maximizing the sensors performance.

LONG ENDURANCE

Two fuel tanks are located outboard of the engines holding 200 liters in total providing 5 hours endurance.

ADVANCED COCKPIT

The P2006T can be equipped with the most advanced IFR Glass Cockpit Display (Garmin 950) and other navigation aids like Autopilot,  Storm scope, DME, etc.

SAFETY

The cabin’s structural design ensures the required crashworthiness prescribed in recent amendments to the FAA-FAR23 and EASA-CS23

RELIABILITY

The twin-engine configuration of the Tecnam P2006T is extremely dependable, enabling the aircraft to travel long over water distances or over rough terrain.

MAINTAINABILITY

Simple and convenient access to the engine compartment allows for fast daily inspections.

REDUCED OPERATING COSTS

Low fuel consumption and minimum maintenance requirements convey in extremely affordable operating costs.

VERY LOW STALL SPEED

The P2006T configuration allows stall speeds lower than 55 kCAS at Maximum TakeOff Weight with very short take-off/landing distances, making it ideal to operate in short runways.

Holes

25.6×16.5in/650x420mm cabin hole

HATCH1This cabin hole is located on the rear passenger’s LH seat. Its dimensions and the great room above the cabin floor allow the installation of several P1070186-768x1024types of systems/sensors. The distance from cabin floor and the fuselage bottom skin it’s only 4.5in and it’s ideal in order to maximize the FOV of cameras, lasers and sensors.
With this option it is possible to install all the sensors listed below (other brand can be evaluated upon request):

Wescam MX-15 and MX-10 EOS Cameras;
FLIR 380HD and 380HDc EOS Cameras;
FLIR 275 EOS Camera;
Radar; (To be managed by third parties STC holders)
Steady Track LG stabilized mount;
Ultracam sensors;
LIDAR Laser sensors (RIEGL, ITRES, LEICA)


 10.7×14.1in cabin hole

This hole is located below the fuselage cabin. Its dimensions and room allow the installation of gimbal EOS up to 10 inches diameter in fixed position. This cost effective solution is ideal also to preserve the fourth seat and fully matches the advantages of a twin engine aircraft: no exhaust blowing on the camera and “STOW” position to protect the lenses from foreign objects impacts during ground operations. The following image shows the hole location and dimensions compared with an MX-10 diameter (grey circle).

 


15.4×12 in tailcone hole

This hole is located below the fuselage tailcone. Its dimensions and room allow the installation of gimbal EOS up to 10 inches diameter. This hole can be provided in conjunction with any of the available cabin hole offering the maximum flexibility when multiple sensor are required on the same platform.

Electrical System:

electric1-1024x795The P2006T aircraft standard version is equipped with 14V electrical system supplied by two alternators (one for each engine), each one capable of 40Amp.

By the way, most of mission systems, sensors and equipment operate with 28V. Tecnam can offer a really flexible capacity in terms of electrical system with the Special Mission dedicated electrical system.

Basically, this option’s modifications on the airframe allow the end-user to have the following available power sources for mission system with an uncompromised aircraft system safety:

 

INTERNAL GENERATOR

Mission system power comes from both LH and RH engines alternators + internal generator. The overall 14V power available for mission equipment is converted by a “converter box” and distributed via multiple connector box.

AUTONOMOUSLY OPERATIVE

The aircraft systems are always and autonomously operative. Several safety provisions allow the mission systems to never draw energy by the standard aircraft system also in case of OEI operations;

NO SEPARATE 24V BATTERY

There is no need of a separate 24V mission battery unless specifically required by the particular sensor initial current draw;

EXTERNAL 12V PLUG

A relays system allow to plug an external 12V power unit to ground operate sensors with engines OFF;

EASILY REMOVABLE

Easily removable for maintenance purposes. It is located inside the baggage compartment and weights 9kg.
