Robotic and Integrated Systems
In addition, the ECA Group is developing a research programme on "robotics systems" of the future. Its aim is to improve the capacities and performance of all the robotised solutions made available to the group's customers.
The ECA Group offers comprehensive and completely integrated solutions for Homeland Security missions, Naval Defence and Air-Land forces. Deployed for surveillance, detection, inspection, rapid response and counteraction missions, these robotic solutions developped by the ECA Group are based on a complete range of air, land and sea robotic systems that can be either remote-controlled or autonomous. Interoperable, equipped with the best high-performance sensors, and able to process data in real-time, these drones are the basis for solutions used to rapidly and efficiently identify and neutralise risks. The ECA Group also offers a range of submarine systems as well as special equipment for ships, land vehicles and aircraft. Also, in the Training Simulation sector, ECA Group supplies its customers with a set of solutions for training personnel in driving proficiency or specialised missions based on a complete range of simulators available worldwide.
