The police helicopters will be deployed to the East Sea and the Korea Coast Guard at Jeju Island on Tuesday and will enter into service early next year.
The new helicopters have added a variety of advanced mission equipment to maintain maritime security to crack down on illegal fishing, search and rescue and prevent marine accidents, KAI said.
For three-dimensional surveillance, they are equipped with navigation radars that can automatically track up to 200 targets, electro-optic infrared cameras capable of 360-degree detection, equipment to identify locations of helicopters and ships, navigational rescue direction finders and external hoists.
In addition to strengthening anti-corrosion treatment for marine salt, floating emergency equipment has been installed to enhance the operational capability in the marine environment.
