For the first time, Envitia exhibited at the ADS Defence & Aerospace Technology Roadshow this year.
Taking place from September to October 2015 at major defence and aerospace sites across the UK, the roadshow was unique in that each exhibitor’s stand was housed on an exhibition vehicle. The vehicle then travelled to each site on the three-week tour, making it a fantastic opportunity to meet with a vast number of defence and aerospace professionals – and to demonstrate Envitia’s ever-expanding capabilities.
The 11 sites we visited were Rolls Royce, Selex ES, Safran Power, QinetiQ, Cobham Mission Systems, Thales Underwater Systems, BAE, Airbus, MBDA, L-3 Communications TRL and Agusta Westland, attracting more than 1500 visitors through the course of the tour.
Envitia’s stand focused on our GEOINT product suite, including the GeoRegistry and Discovery products. Inspired by our deep, technical domain understanding and the applied research we’ve conducted with our customers, this technology suite enables organisations to make better operational decisions from actionable geospatial intelligence. We also provided a demonstration of MapLink Pro, our software developer toolkit, which allows developers to build high-performance mapping applications and is now deployed in more than 10,000 systems worldwide.
With such a wide range of technology being exhibited during the tour – ranging from gears to embedded computers to rubber mouldings – it wasn’t surprising that we attracted varying levels of interest at each site. However, overall there was a huge amount of interest, many worthwhile conversations and a number of new contacts made.
Although we were rushed off our feet for most of the Roadshow, we did manage to free up some time for a guided tour round the aircraft hangars at QinetiQ, Boscombe Down – a highlight for many of the exhibitors who were able to see where their technologies are used, and to see some impressive aircrafts up close, including Hawk T1, Alpha Jet and Tornado GR4.
