Exhibition appearance emphasizes the importance of the Asian market
In 2022, Diehl Defence participates again in the Singapore Airshow and thus emphasizes the increasing importance of the Asian market for military aviation products.
Diehl Defence will showcase models of its medium-range ground-based air defence system IRIS-T SLM, as well as the IRIS-T air-to-air missile on its booth in the Changi Exhibition Centre. Only at the end of last year, the ground-based air defence system IRIS-T SLM demonstrated its operational efficiency during a test firing under realistic operating conditions.
In addition to its ammunition products, Diehl Defence will also display an exhibit from the HPEM (High-Power Electromagnetics) effector segment on its booth: "HPEM-SkyWolf". This system is able to protect events, critical infrastructures as well as military missions against threats originating from drones.
In Asia, Diehl Defence is already a reliable partner of the Thai Air Force that has IRIS-T integrated in its Saab Gripen fighter aircraft. Moreover, IRIS-T has been chosen as short-range weaponry for the KF-21 fighter aircraft of the Korean Aerospace Industry (KAI). This cooperation has been further intensified. Diehl Defence also established an industrial partnership with the Australian company Electro Optic Systems Pty Ltd (EOS).
