    The SAMA CH2000 is a two-seat single engine-prop airplane equipped with forward looking infrared - a multi sensor imager offering high performance, precision, and high level imaging . The aircraft will also be equipped with state-of-the art communications systems guaranteeing continuous and secure air and land communications using various band widths. The craft are capable of day and nighttime missions.

    Sama-CH2000 is a full IFR, two seat light personal and training aircraft. The aircraft is designed by the veteran aerospace engineer Christian Heintz and ideally suited for flight academies due to its simplicity, toughness and low running costs. Sama is type certified in the normal and utility categories by the FAA and Transport Canada, it is also certified in all European countries as well as Jordan.

    Transatlantic Traders Inc.*, Evansville, Ind., was awarded on Sept. 28, 2004, a $5,818,000 firm-fixed-price contract for eight SAMA CH2000 Aircraft. Work will be performed in Amman, Jordan (87.45 percent) and Baghdad, Iraq (12.55 percent), and was expected to be completed by Sept. 26, 2006. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. There were an unknown number of bids solicited via the World Wide Web on June 18, 2004, and 31 bids were received. The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command, Redstone Arsenal, Ala., is the contracting activity (W58RGZ-04-C-0332).

    The three-year-old Jordan Aerospace Industries (JAI) gained preference because the two-seater Sama CH2000 (manufactured and marketed as the "Alarus" in the USA by Aircraft Manufacturing & Development Co. (AMD)), the brand involved in the deal, is being manufactured in Jordan. JAI is the first private company in the Middle East to manufacture, assemble and service light aircraft. Its team is mainly comprised of Jordanian experts who have retired from the Royal Air Force. A team of 40 Jordanian specialists work on Sama CH2000, under the supervision of an aviation safety team from the Jordan Civil Aviation Authority and experts from the engineering company Zenair Ltd of North America, which verifies quality.

    The Iraqi air force's 70th Squadron took possession of the first two SAMA CH2000 light air surveillance aircraft, 29 Octover 2004, in Basrah, as the first delivery of an eight - and possibly 16 aircraft - addition to the force. In standing up the balance of the aircraft, the Iraqi air force will receive two CH2000 airplanes per month - deliveries kicking off in December - with final deliveries completing the $5.8 million acquisition at the end of March 2005.

    ABOUT SAMA AIRCRAFT SERIES
    [​IMG]
    With our experience and market knowledge, JAI dedicated its Design & Engineering Bureau to develop a state of the art training and tactical surveillance platforms to serve the great need of the regional and worldwide market. The result is the Sama Aircraft Series with five different versions providing complete solutions for all civil and military training and surveillance needs.

    The original CH2000 has been in production since early 1996, with already over 175 aircraft flying. The certified and upgradeable Sama Aircraft Series are Utility / Normal category and IFR/VFR Night rated. Manufactured out of aluminum, the aircraft is tough and easy to maintain. Depending on user’s requirement the aircraft are powered by Lycoming engines ranging from 116 hp and up to 180 hp with the option of a diesel engine. The Sama CH2000 has been in service since 2004 in the Iraqi Air Force through a direct purchase by the US Army. Working with the US army, the US Airforce and the Iraqi Airforce has facilitated our leap in the technology of aircraft manufacturing to become a regional leader in the field.

    The latest versions of the Sama CH2000 come from a similar history with a crosswind ability of an amazing 25 knots thus similar to rotary wing aircraft. The Sama CH2000 is durable with low purchase and operating costs and low maintenance. It also incorporates numerous improvements such as the extended cabin, enhanced range and endurance, increased payload, electronic flight instruments and the scope to integrate a wide range of specialist mission equipment.

    The Sama Aircraft Series cruise speed ranges from 100 up to 160 knots and have exceptional low-speed handling and maneuvering capabilities at around 50-70 knots allowing for continuous tight turns during low level observation, inspection and photography. At this low speed it has an endurance exceeding 8 hours assisted by an extended fuselage and larger wings which has been developed for improved fuel capacity.

    SAMA FUTURE

    With the proven track records of the Sama CH2000 & CH2000A we are currently in the middle of the R&D phase of transforming these two models to be totally unmanned. Through our mother company JAI, we can provide a complete unmanned solution for the Sama CH2000 & CH2000A including the autopilot system and ground stations. To this end, and as part of our customer service policy we offer our Sama CH2000 & CH2000A customers upgrade packages at cost.

    The Sama 2020G2 is the product that meets all challenges in that we produced a technically and operationally advanced model that not only meets but also easily beat all its American and European rivals. The current version of the Sama 2020G2 performs better at low operating and maintenance costs.

    Additionally the competitive pricing and our unique regional location add to the aircraft advantages. As we already have the certification for the Sama 2020G2 operating on Mogas and in process of obtaining the Diesel engine certification our future plan is the Sama 2020G2-I powered by 180/200 hp engine as well as the product of 2009 the twin engine Sama 2020G2-II.

    MARKET FIRSTS

    First aircraft manufacturers in the Middle East
    First general aviation aircraft to be equipped with dual airbag system
    First single-engine aircraft powered by avgas, mogas & diesel fuel in the region
    First single-engine aircraft certified for flight in 25 kts cross wind
    First certified engineering and design bureau in the region
    First single engine aircraft certified for military surveillance

    Well, most products posted here in specific are better actually, but Pakistan defense industry as a whole is much more sophisticated and bigger especially in aerospace, naval and missile fields. Jordan is still a small country with limited resources.

    KADDB to Join L-3 WESCAM’s Service Centers Network

    [​IMG]

    L-3 WESCAM announced it will sign a Service Center Agreement with King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) to open a WESCAM Authorized Service Center (WASC) in Jordan.

    KADDB is an independent government entity in Jordan that designs and develops defense products and security solutions in the Middle East.

    The contract is scheduled to be signed at the SOFEX trade show in Amman, Jordan, on Wednesday May 9, 2012 at the KADDB Investment Group booth,

    The new WASC is scheduled to be operational by December 2012 and will provide customers in Jordan and throughout the Middle East region with maintenance and repair capabilities. To offer even more support services, a planned expansion of the facility is expected over the next two to three years, with additional investments in tooling and testing equipment.

    “We are proud to welcome KADDB to our global network of service centers. The new WASC will be an important resource in delivering convenient in-service support to our Middle Eastern customers,” said Paul Jennison, Vice President, Sales & Business Development, L-3 WESCAM.

    “KADDB aims at becoming the preferred service supplier in the region, and we believe that this can be achieved by teaming with a reputable company, such as L-3 WESCAM. KADDB is pleased to join L-3 WESCAM’s ever-growing global network of service centers,” said Shadi Al-Majali, Chairman & CEO of KADDB.

    The addition of KADDB as an authorized service center brings L-3 WESCAM’s global facility count to 12, with other strategically located facilities in the U.K., Australia, Japan, Italy, Spain, Germany, Colombia, Jordan, the United States and Canada. These centers are in close proximity to L-3 WESCAM’s customers, allowing the company to offer local service and expertise, while providing customers with improved turnaround times.
