In today’s increasingly complex threat environment, Airbus brings interoperable and collaborative solutions to ensure superiority for combat systems across the five operational domains: land, air, sea, space and cyber.

Airbus combines more than 50 years of field-proven technology with next-generation systems-of-systems architecture in providing a more digitalised, more collaborative and agile operating environment.

Airbus know-how is underscored by its prime contractor role for Europe’s Future Combat Air System (FCAS) – a network of manned and unmanned platforms from fighter and drones to satellites; its development of the Multi-Domain Combat Cloud (MDCC) – a decentralised, cyber-resilient, collaborative information network using cloud-based technologies; and implementation of the Network for the Sky (NFTS) – a resilient global-mesh military communications solution that allows aircraft to be fully part of a high-speed connected battlespace.

The company’s world-class portfolio of products includes the Eurofighter Typhoon swing-role combat aircraft; the A400M, C295 and CN235 airlifters; the A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport; along with robust, dependable unmanned aerial systems (UAS). For networks and systems, Airbus’ secure and resilient communications capabilities provide comprehensive bandwidth and best-in-class capabilities.

Multi-Domain Superiority

At a time of drastic change, and in a highly interconnected and competitive world, new threats to our way of life are emerging.Modern and future combat systems need to adapt to this new form of danger. Capabilities to overpower adversaries as diverse as local asymmetric forces, global stateless organizations or new hostile technologically-advanced countries, rely on network-enhanced collaboration combat systems. Whether at home or in an operational theatre, excellence is needed to ensure Multi-Domain Superiority.
