From 14 to 18 November 2021 all eyes in Dubai are set on the landmark event of the year, The Dubai Airshow 2021, and Guardiaris is there!
The Dubai Airshow presents the biggest manufacturer sand future trends in commercial and business aviation; additionally, an important segment of the show is certainly a showcase of global players in military and defence. Among them, Guardiaris is presenting its MAAT training solution, being one-of-a-kind outdoor solution that provides the most comprehensive simultaneous MANPADS and aircrew training. MAAT’s comparative advantage is that it could simultaneously train MANPADS gunners, aircrews, MAWS (Missile Approach Warning System) operators and electronic warfare officers. The key innovation lays in its modularity. MAAT can support any type of MANPADS launcher type or model and a wide assortment of simulated missiles. Additionally, MAAT can also be customised to interoperate with any aircraft installed with UV-based MAWS.
Designed as exact “digital twins” of real MANPADS, MAAT’s launchers exhibit every physical mechanical, functional and procedural capability of the real weapon. Soldiers can thus perform completely authentic operational procedures, which enables them to gain all the necessary experience and skills they need before engaging the enemy in real life. Furthermore, MAAT enables aircrew training in responding to missile detection alarms triggered by simulated missile launches. MAAT is designed for UV detection on MAWS at up to an enviable 5 km distance. With the key features being transportability, practicality, and usability in all weather conditions MAAT system results in enormous reduction of training costs, and a significant increase in MANPADS and aircrews’ readiness.
Primož Peterca, CEO of Guardiaris, explained, ”Dubai Airshow is spectacular as expected. It attracted almost all crucial players in commercial and military aviation and therefore enabled us to meet with our respected partners. We are delighted that our MAAT training solution and other products gain a lot of interest and admiration, so we were able to establish many new professional ties for future cooperation.”
