Issue 49 - January 2014

Systems developed by EADS sister companies Airbus Military and Cassidian have played key roles in the first large-scale demonstration of technologies to address the growing crisis of economic migration and smuggling on Europe’s maritime borders. 

The two companies, which will soon join forces with Astrium in the restructured Airbus Defence & Space, demonstrated an Airbus Military CN235 aircraft equipped with the FITS Fully Integrated Tactical System, and a Cassidian Atlante Unmanned Aerial System (UAS).
