Boeing has obtained a certification from the Federal Aviation Administration for the company’s reconnaissance and surveillance aircraft.

The company is now allowed to deliver the Enhanced Medium Altitude Reconnaissance and Surveillance System Risk Reduction Prototype to global customers, Boeing said Tuesday.

“ERRP is a high-end signals intelligence aircraft that delivers near-real-time SIGINT to the warfighter, a capability in high demand from militaries around the globe,” said John Rader, vice president of electronic and sensor solutions at Boeing.

“ERRP’s FAA certification gives us another approved modification in Boeing’s growing family of ISR airplanes,” added Rader.

Boeing’s reconfigurable airborne multi-intelligence and surveillance aircraft under the Beechcraft King Air ISR family also achieved FAA certifications.
