Goodrich systems at Bahrain Air Show
Charlotte, January 21, 2010
Technology from Goodrich Corporation, a global supplier of systems and services to aerospace and defense markets, will be demonstrated by the British Army at the first Bahrain International Air Show (BIAS).
BIAS, which opened today (January 21) at the Sakhir Airbase in Bahrain, will run until January 23.
The demonstration of Goodrich’s ISR Systems business will include intelligence exploitation system as well as its new stabilized camera gimbal integrated onto a developmental vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
At the British Army demonstration area, visitors will be able to watch the soldiers gather full motion video through the integrated stabilized Tase LT gimbal provided by Goodrich's cloud cap technology team and view it in near real-time on the intelligence exploitation system, which allows dissemination to multiple sources.
The stabilised camera within the gimbal will be remotely controlled by the British Army team via a wireless hand controller.
The full motion video captured will be transmitted, via WiFi, directly to the exploitation system allowing the audience to see, almost immediately, what can be seen from the camera within AESIR’s VTOL UAV.
"Having the British Army demonstrating ISR Systems' and AESIR's technologies gives us an opportunity to show how we can provide innovative and cost effective solutions in support of reach-forward surveillance for armed forces and civilian authorities,” said Sam Macleod, managing director for Goodrich ISR Systems in Malvern, UK. – TradeArabia News Service
