The event was hold at Torrejón Air Base on the 18th of June.

In the first edition of the international exhibition of defence and security (FEINDEF), which began last Wednesday, SASCorp exhibited a MALE (Medium Altitude, Long Endurance) UAV with VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) capability and dual flight mode.

The new Engineering Combat Vehicle (VCZAP) had an important role in the FEINDEF. Developed by General Dynamics European Land Systems – Santa Bárbara Sistemas with the active participation of SASCorp, this ECV presents a hull with a higher level of protection than the rest of the members of the Pizarro family, with a multitude of adaptive equipment and exterior cameras to improve the situational awareness. SASCorp has used its advanced supercomputing capability to design a platform capable of withstanding current and future threats. For this purpose we have simulated high energy physical phenomena, side falls, rollovers and crashes.

In addition, the VCZAP can incorporate the VTOL UAV Heimdall/Ares, developed by SASCorp, which can carry two AGM or AAM missiles and a specialized radar to analyze the ground density in order to detect mines or IED’s.

After more than 12 years of collaboration in the development of engineering projects of several armored vehicles and weapon systems, SASCorp and GDSBS have signed a new collaboration agreement that makes the relation between both companies wider and deeper, as they become Strategic Partners. The synergies between GDSBS and SASCorp will let us reach new R&D and industrial goals, as we join the unquestionable and consolidated capabilities and experience of GDSBS, and the exclusive capabilities in design and HPC simulations of SASCorp.

The most recent joint success is the development of the new sapper’s vehicle VCZAP for the Spanish Army. This new member of the ASCOD platform has the higher anti-tank mine protection in the market and improved dynamic and ergonomic capabilities, as the result of the side by side work of both companies.

Other reasons that have led GDSBS to choose SASCorp as Strategic Partner are the large computational power, thanks to our private supercomputing center; and the exclusive and precise high energy models, especially for mine and IED simulations, which have been validated in real tests, in addition to special application capabilities, like nuclear event simulations.

The signing of this new collaboration agreement between SASCorp and General Dynamics Santa Bárbara Sistemas will value the synergies between both companies, which will expand and successfully tackle a new horizon of major challenges and projects.

From May 29 to 31, the first edition of the International Defense Exhibition (FEINDEF) will be held at IFEMA in Madrid, an event in which the capabilities of Defense and Security industry will be shown within the framework of the European Defense Action Plan (EDAP), the new Defense policy of the European Union.

This is the first fair of its kind held in Spain, and it is organized by the business associations of the sector, AESMIDE and TEDAE, with the sponsorship of companies such as Escribano Mechanical & Engineering, General Dynamics-Santa Bárbara Sistemas, Indra, SASCorp, Leonardo, Lockheed Martin or Urovesa, and the support of the Ministry of Defense. It is expected to involve the main national and international defense companies, as well as various delegations around the world.
