Airbus Defence and Space to showcase innovative products for Special Forces at Sofins

SOFINS 2019

Airbus will be presenting an array of products, destined to providing defence and security solutions for national and international Special Forces, at booths C59, B80 and G4 at Sofins (Bordeaux – Camp de Souge – 2 -4 April 2019) .

 

Airbus will present its A400M and C295 platforms. With more than 200 aircraft sold to 31 different operators, the C295 is a tactical military aircraft that has been proven in all environments and operations. A true multirole platform for Air mobility that is also able to meet the most demanding Air ISR or Air strike requirements thanks to the Airbus proprietary Fully Integrated Tactical System (FITS). An optimum platform for Special Forces.

 

A scale mock-up of the pioneering Airbus Zephyr will be on show. Able to see, sense and connect for months at a time, Zephyr runs  exclusively on solar power and flies above the weather and above conventional air traffic. The Airbus Zephyr systems fill a capability gap and are complementary to satellites, UAVs and manned aircraft providing affordable, persistent, local satellite-like services.

 

Full scale mock-ups of the Survey Copter mini tactical drones, ALIACA and the DVF 2000 ER will be on the show. The ALIACA provides a 360° panoramic coverage and can perform intelligence missions up to 50 km range. Thanks to its thermal propulsion, the DVF 2000 ER is a high endurance versatile system allowing 7 hours missions over a 50 kilometers range.

 

Airbus will be presenting its tactical communications system delivering secure, 4G/LTE communications mobility in extreme environments. The portable version for Special Forces is light, easy to use, and fully operational in a few minutes. Also discover our geotracking solution; SUVISTA. A powerful tracking software which enables you to track and trace. A true command centre for on -site operations.

 

Airbus will also be presenting its Secure networked Airborne communications capability “Network For The Sky” our innovative, modular solution, which securely and reliably connects all your airborne assets together with the rest of your operations. Delivering as One.

For the first time at Sofins, Airbus will perform demonstrations of The OneAtlas Platform, its unique collaborative environment to easily access premium imagery, perform large-scale image processing, extract industry-specific insights and benefit from Airbus assets for solution development.

 

Specialist in intelligence integration, Airbus will also exhibit for the first time its Multi-Intelligence center which allows users to manage the whole intelligence process from the collection and visualization to the utilization and distribution of information on one single intuitive and secure platform.

 

Last, the Airbus ‘Holographic Tactical Sandbox’ which facilitates mission preparation by providing a 3D holographic map viewable in an augmented reality helmet.  Integrated into the chain of command, this tool provides an accurate 3D representation of the battlefield using information supplied by Airbus’ Fortion® TacticalC2 application. Operators can view and create information, which is then shared with higher decision-making levels of command.
