Airbus will put the spotlight on its mission-critical solution portfolio for defence and security forces during its participation at the upcoming International Defence Conference (IDEX) in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
The company is one of the global exhibitors joining the event from February 21 to 25 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. It will showcase its range of solutions.
The flexible and scalable TACTILON AGNET 500 is a smart collaboration platform for multimedia communication and data sharing. Designed for mission-critical users, this push-to-talk and messaging service allows the transmission of data, video and voice between team members using different devices. These include radio, smartphone, tablet and laptop.
Airbus’ BorderCore solution will also be presented for the very first time during an event. Designed to reinforce land, air, and maritime border security measures, it offers high-quality surveillance support and is equipped with features to establish a real-time picture of a situation for threat assessment and fast and effective response time.
The company will also display MANPACK, a portable LTE tactical bubble embedded with TACTILON AGNET. MANPACK is specially designed for frontline Special Forces through being light, easy to use, and fully operational in just a few minutes. The device enables voice and video services with a direct connection to headquarters.
Airbus will also showcase its TACTILON AGNET 800 solution along with its TACTILON DABAT smartphone and a TETRA radio in-one. Thanks to its Hybrid Roaming feature, the latter allows users to communicate efficiently and seamlessly switch between Tetra or LTE network services, according to availability.
Airbus’ TB4 solution will also be on show during the event. The hybrid base station is designed to handle both 4G/5G and TETRA technology, providing advanced data and secure voice-based services to defence personnel. This allows them to quickly coordinate with confidence.
