We are very pleased to report that Martin Jetpack took centre stage at the ninth edition of DefExpo, the biennial exhibition of Land, Naval and Internal Homeland Security Systems, which got off to a spectacular start on the 28 March against the scenic backdrop of Naqueri Quitol in South Goa. It is the first time the event, organised by the Ministry of Defence, has been held outside the capital city of New Delhi.
Martin Aircraft Company’s participation at DefExpo was in direct support of our regional Alliance Partner M2K Technologies, who hosted our Business Development Manager, Catherine Stuart, and one of our static display Jetpacks. The Jetpack quickly became the “must see star of the show”, with visits from key officials from India's Fire, Police, Ambulance, Civil Defence, Search & Rescue, Humanitarian Assistance & Disaster Relief (HADR) and Homeland Security Services.
The highlight of the show was a formal visit by the Defence Minster, Manohar Parrikar, to the stand to learn more about the Martin Jetpack and its capabilities in both manned and unmanned operations and how this distributive technology is well placed as a solution for the many challenges that the complex operational environments in India present.
Attendance at this major regional event has generated a substantial number of sales leads and these will be followed up by our Alliance Partners supported by our Sales and Marketing team.
