Defexpo 2010

Defexpo 2010 was the 6th Land and Naval Systems exhibition to be organised by the Department of Defence Production in the Ministry of Defence of the Government of India. This year over 650 companies, both domestic and International showcased their products. 41 official delegations, including 14 ministerial delegations from across the world were among the 50 000 industry visitors.

On display in the Reutech stall was the multiband XCR family of Software Defined Radios consisting of a Manpack Radio with vehicle adaptor option, Dedicated Vehicle Radio, Airborne Radio and Fixed Installation Radio. All these radios are fully interoperable in advanced Secure, Hopping and Data networks and include the latest in data interfaces such as USB and Bluetooth™ as well as advanced situational awareness features such as internal GPS with automatic position reporting.

The exhibition also was opportunity to display the new Battlegroup Communications System (BCS). This hierarchical but flexible system was first developed as the fire control network for the G6 field gun but has applications in any Battle Group organised around a vehicle based team such as MRAP patrols though it’s modular design and highly mobility features.

The highly competitive and demanding Indian market has embraced Reutech’s Technologically Advanced Solutions with annual production orders for the last 10 years and standing orders beyond 2012 . With this strong track record the aggressive Indian Defence Force Modernisation programme offers many opportunities and challenges which Reutech Communications is embracing with the usual innovative South African enthusiasm.

The commitment from Reutech Communications to its products is evidenced in the success of the D-Level Repair Facility established at Hindustan Aeronautics Limited Avionics Division in Hyderabad. For the last 3 years this facility has been maintaining the growing fleet of Reutech products in service on various platforms in the Indian Defence Force and deployed from the freezing heights of the Siachen glacier to the scorching deserts of Rajasthan.

Reutech Communications through our dedicated engineering staff with a real passion for the technology, look forward to unveil the new Light Weight Airborne Radio at Aero India 2011 in Bangalore next year February.
