Dassault Aviation: Japan Coast Guard Selects Dassault Aviation's Falcon 2000 Maritime Surveillance Aircraft after an international competition

Japan Coast Guard Selects Dassault Aviation's Falcon 2000 Maritime
Surveillance Aircraft after an international competition

Saint Cloud, France - April 22, 2015
- The Japan Coast Guard (JCG) has selected the Falcon 2000 Maritime
Surveillance Aircraft (MSA) proposed by Dassault Aviation to enhance its
operational fleet.

The Falcon 2000 MSA, based on a Falcon 2000 LXS (range 4000 NM), is designed
for a broad range of missions including maritime surveillance, piracy
control, drug interdiction, fishery patrol, law enforcement, search and
rescue, intelligence and reconnaissance. It offers the best combination of
size, payload, speed, range and acquisition and operating costs on the
market.

"This acquisition comes after an international competition won by Dassault
Aviation. It is a new milestone in the long standing relationship between
Dassault Aviation and the Japan Coast Guard," said Eric Trappier, Chairman
and CEO of Dassault Aviation. "Japan has successfully operated Falcon jets
for maritime surveillance and search and rescue around the Japanese
archipelago since 1989 and we are extremely honored that, once again, the
Japan Coast Guard has chosen to renew its confidence in our aircraft".

By acquiring modern and efficient new maritime surveillance mid size jets, JCG
will be equipped with a highly capable and cost effective platform developed
with our partners L-3 Platform Integration and THALES.

Dassault Aviation will also provide the JCG with comprehensive maintenance
support capabilities allowing the JCG to achieve a high level of aircraft
availability. These support capabilities will enable the aircraft to
efficiently meet the demanding operational requirements of the JCG.

As a major manufacturer of advanced combat aircraft, Dassault Aviation has a
solid reputation in Naval Aviation having developed several aircraft
dedicated to maritime missions. The Falcon family has been very successful
in the governmental market and this selection of the Falcon 2000 MSA confirms
its capability to fulfill the most exacting customer needs.
