INDO DEFENCE: Eurocopter to exhibit rotary- wing aircrafts

Posted on 06 November 2012 by admin

Eurocopter is to exhibit scale models of the EC725, EC145, AS550 C3 Fennec and AS565 MB Panther rotary-wing aircraft at INDO DEFENCE 2012, joining its EADS parent company during the event (Hall D, Stand D110).

 

 

“With its modern range of helicopters, Eurocopter is well positioned to respond to the diverse operational requirements of Indonesia for its Armed Forces, homeland security, law enforcement and parapublic missions,” said Norbert Ducrot, Eurocopter’s Senior Executive Vice President for Asia Pacific. “We are ready to expand the exemplary collaboration with PT Dirgantara Indonesia, which is supported by major investments and transfer of knowledge in manufacturing, integration and customization of helicopters, with the creation of additional training opportunities and the development of maintenance, repair and overhaul solutions.” PT Dirgantara Indonesia and Eurocopter’s long lasting relationship has successfully led to the choice by Indonesia Air Force to procure six EC725 for combat search and rescue earlier this year. This follows the licensed assembly in Indonesia of SA330 Pumas and AS332 Super Pumas, along with the in-country manufacture of EC225 and EC725 tail booms and airframe assemblies for Eurocopter since 2008. The EC725 selected for Indonesia’s combat search and rescue duties is the latest and most advanced member of Eurocopter’s 11-ton military product line, and has become a rotorcraft of choice in the modernization of military forces’ fleets worldwide. This twin-engine helicopter’s capabilities in challenging operating conditions are being demonstrated during its current Afghanistan deployment by France, and were also proven in operations supporting France’s role with NATO-led operations during the Libyan military campaign.

 

 

Eurocopter’s EC145 family is recognized worldwide as a highly versatile medium twin-engine helicopter for law enforcement and security missions. In addition to its use by police departments, sheriff agencies and other organizations in many countries, the UH-72A version is being supplied to the U.S. Army as its new Light Utility Helicopter. This rotary-wing aircraft’s performance has been further enhanced with the EC145 T2 version, which incorporates new Arriel 2E engines, the company’s Fenestron shrouded tail rotor, upgraded main and tail rotor gear boxes, an innovative new digital avionics suite and a 4-axis autopilot.

 

 

The Eurocopter Fennec helicopter product line – derived from the renowned Ecureuil rotorcraft family – is performing combat, combat support, tracking, escort and training duties around the globe today. This series of adaptable single- and twin-engine helicopters combine powerful light attack capabilities with highly cost-effective airframe and mission system solutions.

 

 

Also highlighted at INDO DEFENCE 2012 is the AS565 MB Panther, a member of the company’s Dauphin family that is in operation with many military services for anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare, maritime counterterrorism, surveillance and control, casualty/medical evacuations and search and rescue. This helicopter series can be fitted with torpedoes and dipping sonar, and is demonstrating its capabilities daily with operators that include the United States Coast Guard – which flies some 100 MH-65 Dolphins for search and rescue, homeland security, drug interdiction, pollution control and other missions.

INDO DEFENCE: Rosoboronexport to display Russian armaments and military equipment

Posted on 06 November 2012 by admin

 

Rosoboronexport plans to discuss all outstanding issues of military technical cooperation with both Indonesian and other regional partners. Rosoboronexport is presenting more than 200 items of Russian armaments and military equipment at 5th International INDO DEFENCE 2012 Expo & Forum will be held from 7 to 10   November 2012 at Jakarta, Indonesia.

 

“Indonesia is one of Russia’s major partners in the region, and it is only natural that we expect progress in many areas of our military technical cooperation with this country, following our talks in Jakarta. We offer our Indonesian partners various projects. It can be licence assembly, joint item development, or assistance in refining products developed by Indonesia. This also involves technologies transfers, which is now especially important for Indonesia striving to develop its own defence industry”, – said Viktor Komardin, deputy director general of Rosoboronexport and head of the delegation to the exhibition.

 

Rosoboronexport expect that Russian air defence systems, such as the Buk-M2E missile system, Pantsir-S1 gun/missile system, and Igla-S man-portable air defence missile system, will draw special attention this year.

 

Rosoboronexport proposes to Indonesia a concept of integrated air defence system based on the Buk-M2E medium-range air defence missile systems and Pantsir-S1 short-range air defence gun/missile systems. Russian experts believe that the system in such configuration will be able to effectively protect country’s vital military and administrative installations from all existing air attack weapons of potential enemy, including from massive air strikes.

 

Highly popular in the region Russian aircraft will also be at the centre stage of the exhibition. Besides promoting new defence products such as the Ka-52 and Mi-28NE combat helicopters, Mi-26Т2 heavy-lift transport with the upgraded avionics suite and Ka-226T light multipurpose helicopters, Rosoboronexport intends to discuss with its partners all issues related to the organisation of an efficient after-sales servicing system for Russian aircraft and helicopters as well as conditions for establishing service centres.

 

Indonesian partners will display a BMP-3F infantry combat vehicle (ICV) operated by the Indonesian Marine Corps. The BMP-3F ICVs have earned an excellent reputation with the Indonesian armed forces. Other countries in the region are showing interest in armoured vehicles from the BMP-3 family. Russian armoured materiel in general, and the T-90S main battle tank (MBT) with its latest upgraded version in particular, show good sales prospects in this region’s market.

 

The 90S MBT has demonstrated excellent performance meeting its high combat and running specifications during most exacting trials in one of the countries in the region.

 

In the naval sector Rosoboronexport offers a wide variety of surface ships and boats, submarines, various weapon systems. Considering extended maritime borderlines of states in the region, one of the most important problems is to ensure effective protection of their 200-mile economic zones. For this purpose Rosoboronexport offers a set of facilities for establishing an integrated littoral sea control system.
