Future Indirect Fires Exhibitors

Instro Precision Ltd. based in the UK is a recognised leader for the provision of target acquisition, surveillance and precise distance measurement technologies. Offering both standard and custom solutions to meet particular customer requirements, Instro sensors and sensor support systems combine industry leading technology with field proven reliability, making them the ‘system of choice’ in a number of global markets. 

Over the past 40 years, FLIR has produced and delivered over 100,000 FLIR sensors, and thousands more radars and CBRNE sensors, for customers in more than 75 nations. We understand extraordinary protection, how critical it is to you and to your mission success.

MOD are in the process of updating “sensor to shooter” artillery systems fit for the 21st Century and the Generic Fires Architecture (GFA) is one of the corner stones of this process.
For future Joint Fires equipment procurement, MOD wishes to adopt the concept of a modular systems architecture based upon open standards; ensuring interfaces and protocols for sub-systems are electronically, electrically and physically integrated in order to improve overall effectiveness and efficiency.
The GFA underpins this having captured the coherent procedures, requirement definitions and interfaces for tri-service assets involved in the execution of Joint Fires in the Land Environment.

ROCKWELL COLLINS is a world leader in the design, manufacture and integration of advanced communications, data links and navigation systems for armed forces globally.  The company provides systems meeting current and future Joint Fires requirements including digitization of the Fires chain integration with C2 systems.  Together with countries that include Australia, Germany and the UAE we have fielded and certified updated versions of FireStorm™ – a modular, state-of-the art and evolving digital joint fires system for the dismounted or mounted JTAC/FAC or JFO. Our all new FireStorm™ rapidly, accurately and safely coordinates artillery, mortars, NSFS and rockets - as well as DaCAS. The latest, body worn, version of FireStorm™ is available now and provides a core “on the man” system that enables full capabilities to be available while in highly mobile and complex tactical situations.  

FACNAV is a multi-role Digitally Aided Close Air Support (DACAS) and Digitally Aided Fire Support (DAFS) kit. FACNAV has been designed to meet the changing requirements of ground troops, while CAS functionality provides JTACs with the most advanced data link capabilities available today, e.g. VMF, L16 and AFAPD. FACNAV also provides a wide range of radio, sensor and weapon systems

Integration both for ground based and airborne assets to help minimize third party collateral damage and avoid blue-on-blue incidents. Utilizing near real-time ISR information and analysis and mensuration tool integration allows for more accurate decision aking. FACNAV was first deployed in 2007. Teleplan Globe AS is based in Norway. 

Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions ranging from military defence to civil security. Saab has operations and employees on all continents and constantly develops, adopts and improves new technology to meet customers’ changing needs. Saab has more than 14 000 employees. Annual sales in 2013 were around SEK 24 billion and research and development corresponded to about 28 percent of annual sales.
