Applied Pyro-Technology Simulation
On stand #747, in Hall 6, WesCom Defence, part of WesCom Signal and Rescue, a specialist in pyrotechnic products for signalling, illumination, training and simulation, exhibits a range of products from the current product range, showcasing the highest quality of specialist pyrotechnic products for the defence industry and latest developments in pyrotechnic technology. These include, the ManPAD Simulator, MERS Illumination Rocket and MECoSt Simulator Impact/Thunderflash.
“We are delighted to be exhibiting at Eurosatory this year,” WesCom Defence’s Director of Business Development and Sales, Holger Mügge, says. “We have been delivering advanced pyrotechnic technology in the Defence and Security industry for over five decades and our expertise in the broad spectrum of pyrotechnic products and services enables us to manufacture the highest degree of quality assurance and reliability. We look forward to making our debut at the show and meeting with visitors from all around the world.”
The ManPAD Simulator, replicates the launch and flightpath of a ground-to-air missile. Upon ignition, it provides a blast, a flare and a white smoke trail that lasts about 10 seconds to create an exact indication of a missile’s flight path, allowing for the direction a threat comes from to be visible. In contrast, the MERS Illumination Rocket has a minimal signature at initiation, with no visible signature throughout flight. This smokeless rocket provides concealment from detection of the launch and is suited to carry various payloads which could be parachute suspended for large area illumination or free-falling flares for signalling purposes. Finally, the MECoSt Simulator Impact/Thunderflash creates a fragment and debris free simulation of a grenade impact and features an un-cocked striker mechanism.
Eurosatory 2018 is showcasing the future of innovation across the land forces sector and MONCh (Moench Online News Channel at www.monch.com) brings together key developments from the show.
