Cohort showcase capability across land, sea and air domains at DSEi 2017

Defence technology company Cohort plc will showcase its capabilities across the land, sea and air sectors at DSEI 2017.

Cohort’s four business units will all be represented, with their presence including Portugal-based EID for the first time following the company’s acquisition last year.

Cohort Chief Executive Andy Thomis commented: “We have a growing order book in our domestic markets and worldwide. DSEi offers an excellent opportunity to demonstrate our new technologies and capabilities. Alongside products and services in the established domains, we will also be focusing on our latest work in sectors such as cyber.”

EID’s focus will be on integrated communications and control systems for naval and land applications, including its ICCS, Integrated Communications Control System for warships, as well as ICC-201 and ICC-251 vehicular intercoms for heavy and light configurations respectively, plus its TWH-100 series personal radios, in use by several Armed Forces.

Marlborough Communications (MCL) is the UK’s leading provider of hearing protection for military personnel with tens of thousands of systems in use across the land, sea and air domains. MCL will be focusing on its Tactical Hearing Protection Systems (THPS) for the Dismounted Close Combat User and THPS Basic User, along with systems for specialist users and for RAF air crew.

Cohort’s cyber and intelligence specialists MASS will be highlighting cyber risk assessment, security and digital operations centres, and critical national infrastructure protection. MASS will also be highlighting some of its latest Electronic Warfare technology.

MASS provides EW training at its specialist centre in Lincoln. Its expanding training portfolio also includes design and delivery of operational level exercises, where it has considerable experience in supporting UK and NATO forces, along with overseas customers. Another developing area for MASS is secure information systems and the move from management dashboards to management cockpits.

SEA will be reinforcing its maritime pedigree, including further developments of KraitArray, the innovative thin line towed sonar. KraitArray has attracted considerable interest from overseas navies recently, with the launch of the modular anti-submarine warfare suite – Krait Defence System – the go-to ASW solution for smaller vessels or platforms with restricted deck space.

SEA will also be displaying the latest in aviation training simulation systems, which now incorporate the most up-to-date virtual reality and augmented reality capabilities. One of the most successful applications is DECKsim providing an immersive, high fidelity, 3D virtual environment for training students in both flight deck and land-based operations.
