Airbus and Thales to show their platforms and technology at the Aero India 2021 trade show

Airbus and Thales will showcase their advanced technologies and platforms at the Aero India 2021 exhibition to be held in Bengaluru between 3 and 5 February.

Paris-based Thales said in a press release that it will bring AirMaster C, the latest addition to its family of air surveillance radars, to the biennial event for the first time.

The company said it will also feature SYNAPS software-defined radios, armaments, small arms, anti-drone measures, and the STARStreak missile system at the exhibit. Thales will also show the TALIOS target acquisition system.

Since its inception in 1996, Bengaluru has hosted the biennial event.

Airbus said in a press release that it will show scale models of C295 medium transport aircraft and A330 multi-role tanker transport aircraft at Aero India 2021.

The aerospace giant said it will also show scale models of the H225M multirole helicopter and the Panther AS565MBe helicopter.

At the exhibition, a section will be dedicated to highlighting Airbus’ strategic local industrial partnerships focused on developing a sustainable aerospace ecosystem in the country. India is one of the largest arms importers globally. According to estimates, the Indian military is expected to spend around $ 130 billion on capital contracts over the next five years.

However, the government now wants to reduce dependence on imported military platforms and has decided to support internal defense production.

The Ministry of Defense has already set a goal of a turnover of $ 25 billion (1.75 million lakh rupees) in defense production over the next five years which includes an export target of $ 5 billion (35,000 crore of rupees) of military hardware.
