Our Global family of high-performance business jets offers the perfect “ready-made” aircraft for C4ISR operations. Their excellent high speed cruise, loiter time capabilities at low speeds and high altitudes and higher ceiling providing greater look-down capability provide the performance required.
Providing solid performance parameters*:
Loiter time in excess of 12 hours.
Top cruise speed of Mach 0.88.
45,000 ft typical operating altitude.
Adaptable to Meet the Mission
Beyond these superior platform capabilities, Global aircraft offer spacious wide-body, stand-up cabin that can be tailored to a wide range of configurations. Each Global aircraft offers personnel unrestricted access to the entire cabin in flight.
Moreover, because these jets feature four engine-driven generators and an air-operable auxiliary power unit, they provide up to 205 kVA to all aircraft systems, including C4ISR mission equipment.
Our Global aircraft are also equipped with Rockwell Collins’ advanced Pro Line Fusion avionics suite. The first avionics system with synthetic vision on a head-up display, it features a visor that folds down and presents the pilot with all the necessary aircraft performance, mapping and terrain information - making for excellent situational awareness even in the worst weather.
