Making its debut in Europe at Paris '97 is a Ray-theon Beech King Air B200T fitted with a Hughes high integrated synthetic aperture radar (HISAR).

Hughes unveiled the HISAR radar imaging system at Paris two years ago and has been flight-testing it since using the King Air as the platform.

Raytheon is using the show to focus on this and other special mission applications for its aircraft. Virtually every product in the company's model range has been specified for special mission configurations at some time.

Typical roles include flight inspection, surveillance, search and rescue, air ambulance and government transport.
