Diehl and its corporate divisions Aviation and Defence will again participate in the traditional “Paris Air Show” (PAS) in Le Bourget from June 17th and will be exhibiting capabilities and products in the fields of aircraft and defence systems at the joint German booth in building 2c.
Diehl is a long-established first-tier supplier in the civil and military aviation industry for avionics products, cabin management systems, smoke detection and fire-fighting components and cabin lighting as well as for guided missiles, ammunition, training and self-protection systems and other products. Visitors to the booth in Le Bourget will be able to view a cabin study on the SYLVIA concept cabin layout as well as exhibits on cabin management systems and avionics components. Numerous exhibits from the missiles portfolio and ground-based air defence are also on display.
Of special importance at this year's PAS is the Franco-German military cooperation project FCAS, in whose development Diehl has been involved from an early stage. Diehl will accompany system leader Airbus (Defense and Space) during the two-year joint concept phase (“Joint Concept Study”) and contribute its recognized expertise in the field of avionics (cockpit, integrated modular avionics, avionics and mission computing platforms, flight control) as well as armament, self-protection, and multispectral sensors.
The FCAS project is of utmost importance for the continuation of competitive and independent military aviation in Germany and Europe. Diehl is already a long-standing partner in several important military programs such as Tornado, Eurofighter, and A400M and thus an equally long-standing, reliable partner of the Bundeswehr.
