Indra will display for the first time its new light maritime surveillance aircraft at FIDAE, the reference fair for the aerospace and defense industry in Latin America, which will take place from 27 March to 1 April.
The company will also exhibit its developments for the most advanced technological programs in Europe: the Eurofighter, the A400M, the Leopard, the new vessels and frigates for the Spanish Navy as well as the Tierra Paz observation satellite, among others.
The MRI surveillance plane that will be presented in Chile expands the solutions offering with which Indra addresses land, sea and air Defense and Security needs. The aircraft includes an advanced radar system, an AIS vessel identification system, a wide bandwidth data link and a state-of-the-art electro-optic device. This technology offers the highest level of effectiveness in exploring and monitoring maritime spaces.
With a range of up to 200 nautical miles, this new plane strengthens the control exercised by the systems Indra develops for patrol vessels, with a range of up to 100 nautical miles. It also complements coastal surveillance systems, which have a range of 50 nautical miles. Indra is the leader in rolling out this last type of solution, with more than 3,500 kilometers of border surveillance throughout the world.
The company will also display its Mini UAV Mantis, which is a system that offers terrain intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance abilities.
For Land, the company introduces its command and control systems for defense, security and emergency management. Indra is a pioneer in this field and has references such as the system that manages security for the city of Madrid or the one used by the Spanish Military Emergency Unit for managing its involvement in natural or industrial disasters.
To manage Army operations, Indra has developed its own command and control system (BMS Battlefield Management System) that allows the exchange of data, images and orders between the command centre and the troops deployed in the theatre of operations.
For air surveillance and security, Indra will display its air traffic management systems, C4I systems and the LANZA 3D surveillance radar, which comprise the main system for the surveillance of the south western European air space within the Atlantic Alliance.
