Indra will be showcasing its defense portfolio, featuring aerial defense, border surveillance and simulation and training solutions at the Africa Aerospace & Defence fair (AAD 2014) held in Centurion, South Africa, from September 17-21.
At the exhibit, Indra will present a scale model of its long-range 3D LANZA Radar for Aerial Defense, boasting state-of-the-art technology and technical and operational features in line with NATO specifications; a scale model of the MRI surveillance aircraft, a surveillance system that has already been deployed in maritime areas between the coastline and a 150-mile radius, with unbeatable acquisition and operational costs; and a VITRIX simulator that allows soldiers to rehearse their missions in a virtual environment, using their own rifles.
The exhibit will also highlight its aerial platforms with a scale model of Indra's MANTIS mini UAV. The smallest model (2.10m wing span) in the UAV range developed by the company, this system allows soldiers to observe every movement within an operating range of up to 30 kilometers. Finally, visitors will also be able to see the MRI surveillance light aircraft, equipped with airborne radar and optronic sensors, and the ground station in a mobile unit.
