Meet your NATO Naval Armaments customers/counterparts at MAST Med 2022

Wed 29 Sep 2021 @ 13:31

NATO OTANWe are delighted to (again) announce collaboration with NATO’s NNAG Group, to host their annual meeting alongside MAST in Athens next year (2–4 November 2022).

Heads of delegations from NATO countries with coastline* are typically invited to MAST as hosted VIPs, so the arrangement with NNAG has always been a positive and complementary one: offering numerous opportunities for NNAG members to meet with global counterparts, discuss operational issues, and discover state-of-the-art naval technology offerings in the adjacent exhibition.

This year’s theme “The Mediterranean: Laboratory for Naval Warfare” will certainly draw keen focus to core discussions at the event.

General Atomics confirm prominence in MAST Toulon

Mon 2 Aug 2021 @ 10:12

General Atomics

Manufacturer of the EMALS (Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System), General Atomics will take the spotlight in Toulon as sponsor, most notably for involvement in France’s PANG (porte avions nouvelle génération), next generation aircraft carrier programme.

EMALS uses electromagnetic technology to launch aircraft from the deck of naval aircraft carriers and offers significant benefits over current launch procedures.

  • Increased launch operational ability
  • Flexible architecture to suit different platforms
  • Capable of launching wide range of aircraft weights
  • Reduced manning and lifecycle cost
  • Reduced thermal signature
  • Reduced topside weight and installed volume

Visit General Atomics at MAST 2021 this October in Toulon.
