International reference for land and airland Defence and Security exhibitions


Nexter demonstrates its status as the leading French systems integrator. Through the creation of KNDS, Nexter, together with its partner KMW, occupy a position as the leader in the Franco-German and European land defense industry. This global meeting is a privileged moment for the company, allowing Nexter to display its entire range.

As the main supplier of the French army, Nexter shows its commitment in the SCORPION program. The JAGUAR (EBRC) will be exhibited on the Nexter and Defense Ministry booth for the first time, alongside the GRIFFON (VBMR). The renovated LECLERC tank will complete this static display on the Nexter booth. The latest vehicle of the SCORPION range, the Lightweight VBMR, will be presented in a full size holographic animation. Finally, Nexter's SEMBA embedded simulation solution will be shown on the static display of the Ministry of Defense (zone Vulcain).

The other systems and products from the Group will also be presented: the VBCI APC [Troop Transport], the CAESAR® family range, with the 6x6 and 8x8 versions and the 105LG1 artillery system. The digital dimension of the Group will be illustrated by an augmented platform, thanks to the Nerva® and OPTIO® robots. In addition, a homeland security version of TITUS® will participate in dynamic demonstrations by the RAID.

As an important part of Nexter, the third largest European player in this field, the Ammunition Business Unit (ABU), including Mecar, Simmel Difesa and Nexter Munitions, will exhibit its full range of ammunition from 20 mm to 155 mm, meeting the needs of the three domains: Naval, Land and Air.

The 40 mm turret, equipped with the CTA International cannon (a joint company between Nexter and BAE), the ARX® 25 and the P20, demonstrate the group's range of weapons and turrets.

The other Nexter Group’s subsidiaries will also be present at this event, in order to promote their expertise and solutions: especially the activities of support and services, through a mobile workshop as well as subsidiary equipment.
