Cassidian, a leading global provider of cutting edge technology in defence and security, will showcase its innovative and high quality products and solutions at IDEX 2013. 

For the first time, Cassidian presents its Virtual Rock Drill (VRD) to the public in the Middle East. The VRD, an interactive terrain sand table that can be used for training purposes and mission planning, is an absolute innovation in this area. For the first time, a product has been developed that combines the military training tried and tested over decades using a sand table with the technical possibilities of computer-supported training forms.

Cassidian presents its new version of Integrated Battle Management Software (IBMS). It is a consequent evolution of Cassidian Air Defence capabilities, which allows the commander to seamlessly integrate existing Air & Missile Defence assets, manage battle operations and tailor the force package to mission-specific needs. IBMS is designed for multiple operation concepts from small point defence operations up to large scale joint and combined missions.

Cassidian provides a complete and complementary range of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), from tactical to strategic products, developed in partnership with its customers. This guarantees the success of all types of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions on the battlefield or in civil operations. As a system integrator for 30 years, Cassidian has experience in all aspects of UAS from development up to in-service support.

Furthermore, Cassidian showcases the SPEXERTM security radar family, a series of high-performance surveillance radars providing automatic detection, classification and tracking of numerous objects on the ground, in the air or at sea at the same time. Combined with optronic sensors, objects can easily be detected even under the harshest conditions. This new generation of radar and optronic sensors provides early warnings and offers a clear overview of situations, thereby enabling security forces to act very efficiently at an early stage.

In the field of Cyber Security, Cassidian is presenting Cymerius, the solution for Security Operation Centres, that ensures business continuity in all situations by monitoring both ICS and business IT. Beside this Cassidian offers a broad range of services and associated solutions to audit IT systems, build appropriate architecture, define security procedures, perform penetration tests and advanced persistent threats (APT) checks. Cassidian is introducing as well an advanced range of multifunctional firewalls for IP network protection.
