Singapore Airshow 2016: Airbus Defence & Space's Aircraft, Space and Helicopter Portfolio

Airbus Defence &Space (DS) presents a Royal Malaysian Air Force A400M new generation airlifter and highlights a wide range of defence and space products for the strongly growing Asian market. A C295ASW anti-submarine warfare aircraft with its proprietary FITS mission system, and the solar-powered, ZEPHYR High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite (HAPS) unmanned system are also presented.

Airbus DS has continuously been a reliable and close partner to the Asian space ecosystem as prime manufacturer (Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Thailand) or equipment provider (Singapore, Korea, and Japan) for Geostationary and Low Earth Orbit spacecraft. Asia is a growth market for its Space Systems business line, which sees strong demand for a broad range of telecommunications and Earth observation satellites based on the AstroBus-S platform, which are exhibited in model form at the show.

Show visitors are able to get first-hand experience of Airbus Helicopters’ H130, H135 and H145 portfolio on the static display. These light helicopters have diverse uses ranging from tourism and business applications to public services, search and rescue and helicopter emergency medical services. In addition, visitors to the Group’s stand are able to view scale models of the NH90 and H225M military transport helicopters and obtain comprehensive information on the complete product line offered by the manufacturer of rotary wing aircraft.
