It will showcase its range of solutions, namely Tactilon Agnet 500 and 800, BorderCore, Manpack, Tactilon Dabat and TB4 at Atlas Stand no CP-225, ADNEC in Abu Dhabi.

Airbus’ BorderCore solution will be presented. Designed to reinforce land, air and maritime border security measures, it offers high-quality surveillance support and is equipped with features to establish a real-time picture of a situation for threat assessment and fast and effective response time.
In addition to Tactilon Agnet 500 and BorderCore, Airbus’ Manpack, a portable LTE tactical bubble embedded with Tactilon Agnet, will also be exhibited at the IDEX 2021 event. Manpack is specially designed for frontline Special Forces. Light, easy to use and fully operational in just a few minutes, the device enables voice and video services with a direct connection to the headquarters.
Airbus will also showcase its Tactilon Agnet 800 solution and Tactilon Dabat smartphone and a Tetra radio in-one. Thanks to its Hybrid Roaming feature, it allows users to communicate efficiently and seamlessly switch between Tetra or LTE network services, according to availability.

“Amid the evolving defense market landscape, the development of new technological innovations and solutions is imperative and should be encouraged to strengthen further UAE government and law enforcement agencies. IDEX plays a vital role in ensuring that Airbus and other global organizations that are renowned in the field are given a platform to showcase their products and services vital to the area of security and defense. The fact that it is taking place in Abu Dhabi shows that the emirate and the UAE as a whole are important players in the global defense industry. In addition, it reflects the country’s bid to establish its leadership status on all fronts” Said Selim Bouri, Vice President and Head of Region MEA & Asia Pacific of Secure Land Communications at Airbus.
“Airbus will demonstrate during IDEX how its myriad of solutions and devices can support our first responders and defense and security forces in the performance of their duties. Our specialists will establish how the technology-driven features of our solutions can enhance team collaboration and communication, as well as help improve the process of making crucial and timely decisions,” Bouri added.
