Insta presents its new products and services at at Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition, in London this week on September 12-15. The event brings together worldwide defence and security companies and professionals.
-We are a front runner in networked defence solutions and services. For the first time, Insta is attending the prestigious DSEI trade show, which provides international defence organizations with an opportunity to thoroughly get to know our experts, the solutions created as a result of our long-term development efforts, and our new, unique unmanned defence solution, explains Tuure Lehtoranta, Vice President, Sales and Customers, Defence.
High-technology and new innovations for the international market
Developed in collaboration between Insta and partner companies, the Insta Steel Eagle™ is an innovative and completely novel defence technology solution that comprises an effective, patented explosive charge and a drone, a system designed for demanding conditions and use-cases. The drone allows for transporting the explosive charge by air into an ideal position above the desired target, where it can then be detonated. The explosive charge contains steel or tungsten shrapnel, and it delivers fragments across a wide area of effect, precisely striking the desired target from above.
– Our new Insta Steel Eagle™ is designed for the domestic market as well as the international defence sector market. Our extensive research efforts and strong competence enable us to create new solutions as well as help our customers to develop high-capability defence technologies, Lehtoranta says.
Insta Steel Eagle™ belongs to the same product family with the Insta Steel Lynx™ take-off canister, introduced a few years ago under a different name. The development of Steel Lynx™ is nearly finished and the product is scheduled to be ready for the market by the end of 2023.
