Finmeccanica at Le Bourget Airshow, Paris

Finmeccanica and its companies participated from the 20th to the 26th of June 2011 to the 49th edition of Le Bourget International Paris Air Show. The Finmeccanica Group presented itself at the Air Show ready to face new challenges of a world which has changed: in the recent years worldwide scenarios have changed, and Finmeccanica is facing a market which has suffered significant shocks.

Defence and Security market has undergone most important changes, the war theatres have become more numerous, and countries with important business prospects are now unapproachable. Finmeccanica’s presence at Le Bourget meets the requests of such a highly competitive and demanding scenario. Different integrated solutions are displayed in six exhibition areas within the Stand (Air Systems, Large Systems, Defence & Security, Cyber Security, Training & Support and Space); an outdoor static display and three Integrated Capabilities Areas, aimed to provide visitors with a real-time demonstration of how the Group integrated capabilities respond to concrete situations.

The three selected scenarios illustrate the Group’s ability to ensure safety during multinational military operations (Joint & Combined Defence Operations), to protect terrestrial and maritime borders (Homeland Protection), and to ensure the security during a major event (Securing Major Events).
