WesCom Defence’s Director of Business Development and Sales,Holger Mügge, said: “We are delighted to be exhibiting at Eurosatory this year. We have been delivering advanced pyrotechnic technology in the Defence and Security industry for over five decades and our expertise in the broad spectrum of pyrotechnic products and services enables us to manufacture the highest degree of quality assurance and reliability. We look forward to making our debut at the show and meeting with visitors from all around the world.”

On display on WesCom Defence’s stand this year was a range of products from the current product range, which showcase the highest quality of specialist pyrotechnic products for the defence industry and latest developments in pyrotechnic technology. These include the ManPAD Simulator, MERS Illumination Rocket and MECoStSimulator Impact/Thunderflash.

The ManPAD Simulator, replicates the launch and flightpath of a ground-to-air missile. Upon ignition, it provides a blast, a flare and a white smoke trail that lasts about 10 seconds to create an exact indication of a missile’s flight path, allowing forthe direction a threat comes from to be visible. In contrast, the MERS Illumination Rocket has a minimal signature at initiation, with no visible signature throughout flight. This smokeless rocket provides concealment from detection of the launch and is suited to carry various payloads which could be parachute suspended for large area illumination or free-falling flares for signalling purposes. Finally, the MECoSt Simulator Impact/Thunderflashcreates a fragment and debris free simulation of a grenade impact and features an un-cocked striker mechanism.
