Calspan is excited to be attending MILCOM 2017 as an exhibitor.
MILCOM is a conference for global military communications professionals, giving industry leaders the opportunity to hear and understand the requirements, pace of change and state of play in a variety of C4ISR markets serving the military, federal agencies and multinational entities.
The MILCOM 2017 theme is Military Communications and Innovation: Priorities for the Modern Warfighter. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to attend over 200 unclassified and restricted sessions lead by experts in C4I and cyber issues as well as specialists in science and technology developments.
For three days, Calspan will join over 100 other exhibitors who provide technological support for aviation, military communications, intelligence and surveillance at the Baltimore Convention Center.
We plan to connect with individuals who might be interested in our in airborne research, development, test & evaluation (RDT&E) abilities. Which includes in-flight simulation, unmanned air vehicle (UAV) surrogacy, and the ability to attach external stores of up to 2,500 lbs on our Gulfstream III airborne testbeds.
Calspan’s Gulfstream G-III is specifically designed to support large-scale testing of avionics, radar and sensor systems, handle large Fire Control Radars, Electro-Optical/Infra-Red (EO/IR) sensors and other heavy external stores. At MILCOM, we’ll be demonstrating roll-on, roll-off capabilities and have examples of what our Gulfstream G-III is capable of.
Calspan also has a fleet of Learjets that are used for in-flight simulation. Each aircraft is equipped with a programmable Fly-by-Wire Flight Control System (i.e., Variable Stability System) that allows for modification of the dynamics of the base Learjet airframe. While the aircraft have been used for manned aircraft handling qualities evaluations for decades, the programmable nature of the VSS allows the aircraft to be used as UAV surrogates to test the latest in unmanned aircraft technologies.
If you or someone you know is attending MILCOM 2017, October 23-25 at the Baltimore Convention Center, stop by and say hello to Calspan. We’ll be at Booth 817 – near the exhibition hall entrance, across from MilDef Inc.
