Raytheon - RAF Sentinel R1 - ZJ693 - Airborne Stand-off Radar - Low-poly 3D model

Perfect for use in games and simulation projects.

TheĀ Raytheon SentinelĀ is anĀ airborne battlefield and groundĀ surveillance aircraftĀ formerly operated by theĀ Royal Air ForceĀ (RAF). While based on theĀ Bombardier Global ExpressĀ ultra long-rangeĀ business jet, theĀ prime contractorĀ for the Sentinel was the American defence firmĀ Raytheon, which supplied most of the mission systems and performed the integration work. Originally known as theĀ ASTORĀ (Airborne STand-Off Radar) programme, procurement of the type started during 1999. Following its delivery in 2007, the Sentinel fleet was operated by an RAF squadron manned by both air force andĀ armyĀ personnel. The Sentinel is interoperable with other allied systems such asĀ JSTARSĀ and the NATOĀ Alliance Ground SurveillanceĀ (AGS) system. Sentinels have been deployed overseas on multiple occasions, such as in support of the British Army inĀ Afghanistan, coalition forces inĀ Libya, and to assist French forces deployed inĀ Mali. The type also saw smaller-scale deployments inĀ GhanaĀ and even domestically to assistĀ disaster reliefĀ operations. In 2010, the British government'sĀ Strategic Defence and Security ReviewĀ (SDSR) announced its intention to withdraw the Sentinel airborne ground surveillance aircraft once it is no longer required to support operations in Afghanistan.Ā The 2010 decision was reversed in 2014 by Prime MinisterĀ David CameronĀ and in the 2015Ā SDSR, theĀ British governmentĀ announced that the type's retirement would be delayed and that it would remain in service into the next decade. Due to the repeated equivocations over its future, the Sentinel did not receive upgrades during its service life. The type was retired in March 2021.
