Airbus is showcasing its range of products and services in the defence, space, secure communications and helicopter segments at the DSEI exhibition at Excel, London from Sept. 14-17.
The Airbus stand H6-122 will feature models of the A400M new generation airlifter and Skynet 6A military communications satellite, as well as a large new model of the H175M medium transport helicopter.
Visitors can learn more about Airbus Helicopters’ H175M-based proposal to meet the United Kingdom’s New Medium Helicopter (NMH) needs.
Airbus’ expertise in secure communications will be a key theme at DSEI including the Skynet military satellite communications capability. The company is focusing on the UK MOD’s future milsatcom requirements, including leading the consortium for future Skynet services with its partners KBR, Leidos, Northrop Grumman and QinetiQ.
New developments in secure communications will feature beyond line of sight (BLOS) through the rotor blade communications showcasing Airbus’ Proteus Unity Satellite Modem System. This new lightweight system utilises an adaptive waveform that ‘senses’ the blade position with no input from the platform itself, and adapts the transmission to always provide optimum communications.
In the Multi Domain Combat Cloud, Airbus will demonstrate how the company is making multi-domain operations a reality. DSEI will feature Team ICELUS, which brings Airbus, Fujitsu and Thales UK together to work collaboratively on the upcoming Systems Integrator (SI) opportunity for the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD), Land Environment Tactical Communications and Information Systems programme, known as LE TacCIS.
