Nexter, a KNDS Group company, is present at the 20th Government internal security exhibition, which is held at the “Parc des expositions Paris-Nord Villepinte” from 21 to 24 November.
The only French system manufacturer/integrator in the land defense sector, Nexter uses its know-how and its capacity to innovate in order to propose solutions that meet the specific requirements of both French and international security forces.
The TITUS®, a multi-purpose 6x6 vehicle, the spearhead of its range in which all of the Nexter Group's expertise in the security domain is concentrated, will be exhibited on the stand, in its Internal Security version. Capable of carrying up to 13 equipped personnel, the TITUS® can fulfill a broad spectrum of missions; from counter-terrorism to counter-insurgency, including peace-keeping and frontier surveillance thanks, in particular, to its ballistic and NRBC protection as well as protection against improvised explosive devices (EEI).
Nexter works in close collaboration with the RAID in order to adapt the TITUS® to this elite force's requirements, both for use as an intervention vehicle and as a command post vehicle. Currently undergoing evaluation by the RAID, the TITUS® has already been deployed during major events, such as the securing of the COP 21 conference, and is regularly used in anti-terrorist operations and against organized crime.
Nexter is also presenting the FINDMP® mission preparation tool, coupled with an Immersive Building Reconstruction Tool (ORBI). Its aim is to assist Intervention Forces in placing under siege a building reconstructed in 3D based on 2D photos or intelligence. Thanks to the immersive visualization software designed by Nexter Training, Intervention Forces can study how to get through doors, where to position friendly snipers and how to prepare their mission to maximum effect.
The Nexter Group’s equipment manufacturing subsidiaries will also be present at the Milipol exhibition: Nexter Robotics will exhibit its Nerva® robot range, NBC-Sys will spotlight its know-how in terms of handling major NRBC risks; Nexter Electronics will present its future energy solutions via TEYA and Optsys will demonstrate the effectiveness of its protected vision systems via the Viper Security System.
