Interactive Display Attracted Significant Visitor Interest
Rio de Janeiro-based ARES took full advantage of the location of LAAD 2017 to impress local and international visitors alike during the premier Latin American defence and security exhibition earlier this month. The company showcased its main areas of strength in land and naval systems to a constant stream of interested delegations, procuring authorities and local media.
A key feature of the company’s exhibit was the interactive nature of the displays, with many of the products featured allowing visitors to ‘kick the tyres’ and judge the systems characteristics first hand. Among the several products that attracted great interest was the TORC30, an unmanned gyrostabilised turret mounting a Rheinmetall MK30-2 30mm gun. Just as important was the REMAN manually operated protected weapon station, capable of mounting a variety of machine guns and designed for use on light wheeled or tracked armoured vehicles. Naval systems on the booth included both CORCED and ATENA weapons stations.
ARES has a history of almost 50 years providing quality products and services to the Brazilian Armed Forces. It is Brazil’s first Centre of Excellence for Weapon Stations for both ground and maritime use.
