Q-SLAM-40 is a loitering system that enables safe and efficient short-range missions. This system, designed and manufactured entirely by Arquimea in Spain, is a unique loitering system. An effective, flexible, proven and deployable solution, which can be adapted to the needs of each mission and environment. At FEINDEF, the company is showcasing for the first time the complete system consisting of the loitering platform, the launcher and the ground station with the communications and control system.
The complete Q-SLAM-40 system can be seen at Arquimea’s C05 stand in pavilion 10 of the IFEMA trade fair complex.
Arquimea is already working on a vehicle-mounted version of the system. This evolution of the Q-SLAM-40 will be exhibited at FEINDEF on EINSA’s Netón vehicle at stand D05 in pavilion 10. Arquimea boasts the capacity and experience to mount the Q-SLAM-40 on multiple platforms and vehicles, to adapt to the operational needs of its customers. The loitering system successfully demonstrated its maturity and accuracy at the Army Forum last October.
The company is also working on the Q-SLAM-100, a version of the loitering system that will have more capability and autonomy for longer-range missions.
In addition to the above, Arquimea is also showcasing at the fair its information and control systems for mortars that are operational in more than 5 NATO armed forces and in many others in the Asia-Pacific region: TECHFIRE, a firing control system for mortars and artillery; BC-LITE: a ballistic calculator for mortars; eCOMPASS, a digital goniometer that improves accuracy and reduces aiming time to 50 seconds; mCOUNTER, a mortar firing counter, to improve maintenance and safety; and SHEPHERD-MIL ADVANCED, the surveillance drone shaped like a bird of prey.
As a technology company present in the most demanding sectors, Arquimea will also showcase at FEINDEF its capabilities for the space sector. The company has more than 1,400 m2 of state-of-the-art facilities with clean rooms and a team of more than 200 engineers, PhDs and technicians with over 20 years of experience and more than 160 successful space missions for major space programmes.
