AEL Sistemas attends international fair in Rio de Janeiro and presents products and services for Defense and Security
Among the products taken to the event is the WAD, a panoramic display part of the Brazilian Air Force’s new Gripen
AEL Sistemas will participate in the 2018 edition of the Rio International Defense Exhibition (RIDEX) and the Defense Industrial Base of Brazil Exhibition (BID Brasil, in Portuguese), which will take place from June 27 to 29 in Rio de Janeiro. The company will present its products and services to the Armed Forces, and also interact with customers seeking for innovative solutions to meet the market’s needs.
"Attending RIDEX is an opportunity to demonstrate our capabilities and, along with our clients, be able to understand and contribute to the challenges and needs of military technologies in defense and security areas", says Sergio Horta, president of AEL Sistemas.
AEL’s goal is to demonstrate and reinforce the Brazilian industry’s capacity to develop technology in military and space electronic systems for defense and security. In this sense, the company will display equipment such as the WAD (Wide Area Display), which is part of the latest generation cockpit of the Brazilian Air Force new fighter – Gripen – and the main visual source of interaction with the pilot’s operational and tactical environment. This smart panoramic display provides flight and mission information, as well as symbologies and images in the cockpit. With high dimensions and a sophisticated human-machine interface, the WAD increases situational awareness and enables better management of the combat environments.
RIDEX’s attendees will also be able to check the Dominator™ – same system choosen by the Brazilian Navy Marine Corps in 2017 –, which is composed of many equipment and sensors providing a wide situational awareness, facilitating the decision-making process and increasing the operational capacity of the soldier. An integral part of this solution – which will also be presented at the fair – is Raptor, individual high-performance computer with visualization, computing, and communication features that allow the combatant to have a real-time common operational image, inserting and receiving data from the mission shared with other combatants during all combat stages.
AEL Sistemas will also take to RIDEX the GATR (Guided Advanced Tactical Rocket), a tactical system that, incorporated to a 68/70mm launcher, becomes a high precision guided ammunition. The product is designed to improve engagement assertiveness on parked or moving targets with minor collateral damage. In addition, it can be used in air-groundor ground-ground missions, both in low-intensity conflicts and in urban environments. Versatile, GATR canbeinstalledonseveralplatforms.
The ANVIS/HUDTM (Advanced Night Vision System/Head Up Display) allows the pilot to maintain his attention in the external environment, since the main flight information is projected in hisfield of vision, both during the day and at night. The solution can be installed on any type of helicopter and can communicate with other aircraft systems to add more capabilities to the system, such as integration with intelligent armaments, electro-optical systems etc. ANVIS/HUD increases flight safety and reduces the pilot’s workload by eliminating the constant need to switch the view from the helicopter’s external environment and the dashboard.
RIDEX was created to show how the armed forces has advanced in the military and civilian fields by integrating industry with academic activities and research centers. Promoted and organized by EMGEPRON (Marine Projects Management Company), the event will bring together professionals of the Defense, Security and Offshore sectors, as well as the presence of military authorities, government officials and executives of several companies to discuss opportunities and challenges faced by industries in this segment.
RIDEX 2018 edition already has more than 150 exhibitors and expects 9 thousand visitors during the three days of the event, when will be held symposiums, round table discussions and dynamic lectures. Outside, there will be demonstrations of boats, ships and airplanes on the Guanabara Bay.
