The year 2023 is marked by trade fairs, and IDET, the International Defence and Security Technology Fair, is no exception. The 17th edition took place in May at the Brno Exhibition Centre and once again confirmed its position among the most important European trade fairs of its kind. The event featured a comprehensive showcase of new technologies and options to counter security risks. A total of 551 exhibiting companies from 29 countries presented themselves this year, and more than 30,000 trade visitors from dozens of countries visited the trade fairs over three days.
The fair is held with the support and participation of the most important political and military representatives of the Czech Republic. The largest exhibitor is the Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic and the Army of the Czech Republic. The fair is visited by foreign military delegations and foreign ministries of defense for armaments. We were able to meet with our leading customers and partners and discuss important developments related to our complex electric propulsion systems, custom battery systems, and specialty electronics.
The innovative combination of a piston engine and a modern electric BLDC motor for ultralight aircraft pushes the boundaries of efficiency, ecology and safety in the aviation industry. The hybrid unit is characterized by reduced fuel consumption and emissions, as well as low operating costs. Comprising a powerful and lightweight birotary engine, a modern BLDC electric motor, and a complex battery system with integrated air cooling, it represents a new era of aviation, combining performance and sustainability.
