This morning we’re tracking a surveillance mission carried out by an USArmy Bombardier 600 ARTEMIS (reg. N488CR – callsign BRIO68).
The ARTEMIS has departed from Costanta around 07:30 CEST and it’s monitoring the Odessa area, the sea off the coast, Transinistria and south-west Ukraine.
According to the Army, ARTEMIS (short for Airborne Reconnaissance and Targeting Multi-Mission Intelligence System) is the service’s first ever Manned Aerial ISR jet.
The ARTEMIS program, a joint investment between the Army and industry partners, started in May 2019 and recently completed aircraft and sensor system engineering, airworthiness qualification, information assurance accreditation, integration and testing requirements.
