In the UAV section, a wide range of civilian and military applications was presented - from small-sized UAVs to high-altitude vehicles of the HALE type (high altitude long endurance).

Among the industrial innovations and research projects, new aircraft seat designs, new passenger aircraft cabin concepts, low-emission engines, new materials, alternative aviation fuels, i.e. a wide range of innovations aimed at creating environmentally safe aviation technologies that do not violate the Earth’s climate.

In the section "Space for the Earth", presented in the space pavilion, innovative developments of the aerospace industry were demonstrated.

The 282 aircraft, including the Airbus A380 and the Boeing 747-8, the Beluga transport aircraft, the new AHNUMXM military transport aircraft, the new X400 high-speed hybrid helicopter , aircraft with solar panels Elektra One Solar.

      Taurus Systems GmbH introduced the Taurus KEPD (Kinetic Energy Penetration Destroyer) 2012 long range subsonic aircraft cruise missile at the ILA 350 Berlin Aviation Exhibition in Berlin. Taurus Systems GmbH is a joint venture of the German LFK-Lenkflugkörpersysteme (EADS / MBDA) and the Swedish Saab-Bofors Dynamics .

      The Taurus KEPD 350 high-precision cruise missile can penetrate dense air defense systems and destroy highly protected stationary and semi-stationary ground targets. The German Federal Office for Military Technology and Purchasing (BWB) awarded Taurus Systems GmbH a contract to develop a long-range aircraft cruise missile in 1998. The first successful missile tests were conducted in June 2001. Maximum range flight tests were carried out in November 2002 at Denel Overberg training ground in South Africa. The tests were conducted by the 61st Test Center and the German Air Force. Serial production of Taurus KEPD 350 started in 2004.

      The launch weight of the rocket is 1400 kg. It is 16,7 feet long and has a wingspan of 6,7 feet. The missile consists of modular sections (including electronic systems), which can be installed depending on the type of combat mission. The weight of the tandem penetrating (cumulatively high-explosive) warhead is 481 kg. The Williams P8300-15 dual-circuit engine provides cruising speeds from 0,6 to 0,95M at a very low flight height (30 m). The maximum firing range is 500 km. High accuracy is provided by the combined (3-component) autonomous navigation system (ANN + GPS + RL-correction according to the map of the area) and infrared seeker.

      The missile is in service with the German and Spanish air forces. Two Taurus KEPD 18 missiles can be suspended on Tornado, EF-350 and Eurofighter aircraft. The Spanish Air Force delivered 43 missiles under a contract of November 2004 (transaction value was 57,4 million euros, deliveries were completed in August 2010). The German Air Force received about 600 missiles (the contract was concluded in August 2002, the transaction value amounted to 570 million euros, deliveries were completed in December 2010). Possible customers of Taurus KEPD 350 are Australia, Canada and Sweden. The missile was offered to India to equip the Su-30MKI fighters.

      But what does "Voennoye Obozreniye" have to do with it? Well, if it does, then it was necessary to talk about it in more detail. I'd rather read more information about specific exhibits.

      At the ILA-2012 exhibition in Berlin, a ceremony was held to transfer the first modernized CH-53GA helicopter to the German armed forces, according to a September 12 press release from Eurocopter.

      The Eurocopter Technical Service Center in Germany is currently carrying out a comprehensive modernization of 40 Bundeswehr CH-53G helicopters in the CH-53GA configuration to provide the German armed forces with a modern fleet of these machines and extend their service life.

      Eurocopter upgrades 40 helicopters over a three-year period. In addition to the transferred helicopter, three other machines in the initial configuration have been used for training flights since July 2012.

      The CH-53GA is equipped with state-of-the-art avionics and communications systems compatible with Tiger and NH90 helicopters. In addition, pilots can now use a 4-axis autopilot, as well as modern electronic warning and defense systems. The helicopter is also equipped with an infrared front view system and additional fuel tanks, increasing the flight range to 1200 km.

      BAE Systems received an application from India to purchase components and equipment for 20 Hawk training aircraft (AJT) for assembly at the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) plant.

      The planes, which will be assembled at the HAL in Bangalore, will be transferred to the Indian Air Force aerobatic team.

      In the event of a deal, this will be the third contract for the supply of Hawk Mk132 aircraft components and equipment to this country following an order signed in 2004 for 66 aircraft, including the delivery of 24 finished aircraft and 42 aircraft for licensed assembly on HAL, and an order for another 57 aircraft in 2010.

      The Indian Air Force is the largest operator of Hawk aircraft, of which more than 1000 units have been sold in the world. Other purchasers of Hawk aircraft are Australia, Canada, South Africa, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the United Kingdom. The Royal Armed Forces Red Arrows aerobatic team has been using Hawk aircraft since 1979.
