Aeronautical company

As an Approved Aeronautical Organization, we provide technical-logistic support for military projects. This includes services relating to type-certification, system support for the CH-53, MK41 and MK88a helicopters as well as comprehensive system support for the KZO target localization UAV.

System support services for the MK 88a Sea Lynx helicopter footrest relate to development, manufacture and maintenance.

Since early 2019, RTP has additionally been tasked with providing system support for the observation and reconnaissance system BAS 2000 for the Sea King MK41 helicopter, and the engine test rigs GNOME (Sea King MK41) and GEM (Sea Lynx MK88a).

Some of the services delivered by RTP are outlined in the following project examples.

System Support in connection with logistic support services (type certification documents)

For the helicopters CH-53, Mk41 und Mk 88a, RTP – as the system support company and/or prime contractor – is responsible for logistic support services needed in connection with the type certification (i.e. type certification documents).

RTP provides system support of the footrest mission equipment kit used by Special Forces on the Sea Lynx Mk88a helicopter. The footrest is used to secure airborne personnel leaning out of the helicopter in flight. In this project, the service covers development, manufacture and maintenance of the product.

Target Localization UAV (KZO)

In the field of technical logistic support services under the Support Services Catalog (BLK), RTP – as the system support contractor for the target localization UAV (KZO) – manages numerous subcontractors under contract to the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAIINBw). RTP warrants the mission readiness of the system and has rendered support services for ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) in Afghanistan for more than 1,000 mission flights.

Observation and Reconnaissance System BAS 2000 for the Sea King Mk41

RTP started to provide system support for the Observation and Reconnaissance System BAS 2000 at the beginning of 2019. The BAS 2000 system on the Sea King Mk41 naval helicopter helps pilots to perform e.g. SAR (search and rescue) operations, international missions (e.g. for KFOR, ISAF) or domestic operations (e.g. assistance during emergencies in the event of flooding or for disaster control purposes). RTP’s technical logistic support services under the Support Services Catalog (BLK) encompass full-scope product development and maintenance for the BAS 2000.

Engine Test Rigs GNOME (Sea King Mk41) and GEM (Sea Lynx Mk 88 A)

Technical logistic support under the Support Services Catalog (BLK) for the engine test rigs GNOME (Sea King Mk41) and GEM (Sea Lynx Mk 88 A) involves development work. RTP is also responsible for in situ service, maintenance and overhaul of the two test rigs for the German Naval Air Wing (MFG 3 and 5) in Nordholz, Germany.

EN9100 Certification 2019

The EN9100 re-certification audit by DNV-GL took place in March 2019. All RTP sites were audited, whilst development, manufacture and maintenance were audited at the Bremen site. The audit confirmed the EN9100 certification for the “Development, manufacture, purchase, maintenance and service, including technical-logistic analysis and documentation of systems and components for aerospace, land-borne and maritime systems” as per EN9100.

MSD-V3 (Maintenance Support Device - Version 3)

The MSD-V3 device supports maintenance and repair of the Patriot weapon system. RTP provides hardware and software support under a maintenance framework agreement.

Manned Gyrocopter System M24 (PLUTO)

One of RTP’s non-military projects is the manned gyrocopter M24 (PLUTO) system with its variable equipment. RTP is conducting research and development on the system’s avionics, opto-electronics, sensory as well as drive and fuel systems.
