At high or low altitudes, King Air and Hawker aircraft are stable, economical and reliable platforms for long endurance maritime missions.

Beechcraft King Air aircraft and/or Hawker aircraft currently perform maritime patrol missions on all continents. Maritime equipped King Air and Hawker aircraft serve various roles: Exclusive Economic Zone protection; pollution detection; harbor management; and piracy surveillance. Maritime patrol configurations are designed to meet a wide range of mission and budget requirements. Configurations range from day and night imagery with an electro-optic/infrared sensor to the addition of maritime search radars, Automatic Identification System interrogation, recorders and real-time data links.
