Madrid is hosting the second edition of the International Security and Defence Fair, FEINDEF 21, in which more than 300 companies and organisations from this industry are participating, and which is expected to receive more than 20,000 professionals from around the world.
AERTEC is currently working on different projects that are part of the European Defence Industrial Development Program (EDIDP).
This event, the biggest security and defence event held in Spain, will once again be attended by AERTEC, the international technology company specialising in aeronautical technology for military capabilities. The company will have its own stand showcasing two unmanned aerial platform models, TARSIS 25 and TARSIS 75, the latter armed with two μASM A-Fox micromissiles. These high-tech UAS are designed for observation and surveillance applications with light weapons integration, designed with in-house technology developed by AERTEC, one of the leading European companies in the field of innovation applied to unmanned aerial systems.
“FEINDEF is the best possible scenario in which to demonstrate the operational and technological maturity of our capabilities in the field of Defence, and to convey the updates to our systems to authorities, administrations, companies and potential partners”, says Pedro Becerra, AERTEC Defence and Aerospace Division Director.
Some of these technological developments at AERTEC are already part of projects under the European Defence Industrial Development Program (EDIDP), in which it contributes its technology and expertise to contribute to the European Union’s defence strategy. For example, it is currently participating in the TALOS project (PADR-2018), which will develop and demonstrate some of the most essential directed-energy laser weapon technologies, to pave the way for the design and construction of a high-power laser effector for the EU to be used in the military by 2025. Meanwhile, as part of the JEY-CUAS project to develop a joint system to counter the growing threat of unmanned aerial systems, TARSIS in surveillance mode, integrated with Command and Control (C2), will be an additional sensor in the JEY-CUAS system for situational awareness of the general threat.
