It’s Raining Awards
While Proengin got the GICAT Export Trophy for its international strategy, Aleph-Networks was awarded with the Innovation Trophy for developing a breakthrough technology for information, cyber defense, and cybersecurity.
Technological Innovations On Display
Robotic Systems stole the show. While General Robotics showcased “Pitbull” in a new Counter-UAV configuration, STM, a Turkish player , displayed “Kargu”, an autonomous rotary quadrotor attack drone that is carried and controlled by a single operator. BlueBird’s ThunderB, with its new capability to carry and release external stores, also got quite the attention.
An Unprecedented Record
As many as 52 Israeli defense companies are participating in this year’s show. That’s a 40% increase, compared to the 2016 Edition. The companies are all set to display military developments and applications in the Israeli pavilion, and are looking forward to meeting the challenges that armies and security agencies encounter on the 21st century battlefield, against the backdrop of terrorist events, and safekeeping of borders & sensitive installations.
The Wait Is Finally Over
Eurosatory 2018, the coveted, international land and airland Defence and Security trade show, begun on a high note, and the exhibitors are already presenting world-class solutions, right from basic parts to prime-contractors’ finished products and operational systems. While the Israeli company Plasan unveiled the latest addition to its range of “Sandcat” vehicles, Revision, on the other hand, is showcasing “ComCentr2”, a tactical headset system that offers active noise reduction and 360 degree situational awareness. The first day at the show also saw a series of new launches, including Lincad’s launch of its new six-channel battery conditioner, the “Armada”.
