Finmeccanica, through its companies AgustaWestland, Selex ES and OTO Melara, takes part in DSA 2014, which is held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 14-17 April.
AgustaWestland is showcasing a full scale mock-up of the new generation AW149 medium twin multirole military helicopter on static display, and presents its comprehensive portfolio of commercial and government models.
At present, AgustaWestland has more than 300 helicopters on order between South and North East Asia by military, parapublic and commercial operators, and currently supplies Super Lynx 300 in Malaysia and Thailand, AW109 and AW109 LUH in Malaysia and the Philippines.
At DSA, Selex ES will highlight solutions in the areas of air traffic management, baggage handling, secure communication and security; its Integrated Airport solution to deliver improved efficiency and enhance the passenger experience; its coastal mobile surveillance solutions which can operate autonomously or be integrated within larger coastal/border management and harbour protection systems; its mission systems, situational awareness and ISTAR products and sensors to increase land vehicle based operational capability.
The company also exhibits its which includes multifunctional KRONOS naval radar based on AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) technology which can simultaneously and automatically perform surveillance, tracking, threat evaluation and fire control against multiple threats; JANUS-N field-proven, high performance multi sensor naval surveillance suite for sea patrolling; Horizon HD infrared cameras, specifically designed for long-range surveillance and target acquisition. As a major part of the Eurofighter Typhoon programme, Selex ES is also supporting the aircraft's campaign activity at the show.
OTO Melara will display the STRALES system, the evolution of 76/62 naval artillery including a 76/62 naval gun, DART guided ammunition and a Radio Frequency Guidance System with related electronic components. This system is the most effective response to the emerging need for medium calibre naval guns, ensuring the highest level of reliability within changing scenarios in Air Defence as well as in Anti-Surface warfare. Furthermore the company showcases the sub-calibre guided projectile DART.
Following a radio frequency beam, the DART guided projectile can change its trajectory and be re-vectored towards the target during its flight. The DART ammunition is very effective against manoeuvring missiles and small manouevring targets at sea, this situation is very common in current asymmetric conflicts where the security of large and expensive naval units can be jeopardized by cheap, small explosive boats. Even the family of Vulcano ammunition, including the Vulcano 76mm, is on display at DSA. It is a sub-calibre projectile that can engage a target over a 40 km distance doubling the range of a standard 76mm projectile. The Vulcano technology has been applied to a smaller calibre enhancing the capabilities of 76/62 naval guns in service with 56 Navies in the world, in order to engage targets with higher precision and minimize the risk of collateral damages.
MTL Group will be showcasing several key armour components including IMPAS armour and SMARTbend for blast and ballistic applications for the very first time at DSA 2014, 14-17 April. “The Asian market is an area we have seen significant growth over the past few years at MTL Group
