Commuter Air Technology completes aircraft integration work for Arizona Department of Public Safety


Commuter Air Technology, an AGC Aerospace & Defense company based in Oklahoma City, has completed a civilian surveillance aircraft integration for the Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) Aviation Unit under a contract.

As per the terms of the deal, CAT modified a King Air B300 aircraft to bolster the AZDPS' efforts in border enforcement, rural search and rescue, and urban tactical tracking.

The airplane has been installed with civilian airborne and rescue devices such as radio and satellite communications suite and a high altitude electro-optical/infrared camera that enables real time video data links to the headquarters and field units.

This airborne surveillance solution bolsters AZDPS helicopter fleet by offering the ability for greater range and more sustained flights at increased altitudes.

Commuter Air Technology president Darryl Wilkerson said: “CAT is honored to supply the Arizona Department of Public Safety with this enhanced capability in support of their public safety missions.

“This contract expands CAT’s services to the law enforcement market. CAT has been an experienced integrator of King Airs for private, commercial and government customers around the globe. We are thrilled to apply our expertise in support of public safety efforts here at home.”
