A full scale Gripen E model with the new Wide Area Display (WAD) was exhibited at the Rio International Defense Exhibition (RIDEX) by the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) last week.
According to Major Aviador Manoel Carneiro, who was in charge of the FAB booth, "We have brought a fully interactive concept here. Each visitor will be able to get to know the strategic projects of FAB”. The full size replica of Gripen provided visitors with the unique opportunity of examining the fighter closely. Miroslav Kocian, Major-General of the Republic of Slovakia, was among the visitors impressed by the new version of the Gripen and the high end technologies that go into the smart fighter.
RIDEX, held between 27 and 29 June in Rio Janeiro, enabled participants to present cutting edge products and technologies.
AEL Sistemas showcased, along with WAD, the NVIS / HUDTM (Advanced Night Vision System / Head Up Display).
The event had 9000 visitors, 90 exhibitors and was attended by Defence Minister Joaquin Silva.
