Hexagon’s Luciad adopted by DTS as standard platform for developing new Chilean defense systems

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., – Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division today announced Technology Development and Systems (DTS), a subsidiary of the National Aeronautical Company of Chile (ENAER), has selected Luciad as the standard platform for the development of a new generation of defense systems for the Chilean Armed Forces, including two command-and-control systems for the new Pillán II aircraft.

After rigorous technical evaluations, DTS selected Luciad from among other solutions in the Defense industry as the standard for new systems. Luciad is a developer platform used by militaries around the world for creating custom high-performance, mission-critical geospatial solutions. It enables greater situational awareness through 2D and 3D visualization of large amounts of static, dynamic and real-time data.

DTS has begun using Luciad for a combat and tactical control system, which will debut during Salitre 2022, a military exercise happening later this year with participation from multiple nations. DTS is also using Luciad as the basis for the Missing Planning System (MPS) and Tracking System (TRK) that will equip the new Pillán II aircraft.

“We are proud to support DTS in the development of new defense systems for the Chilean Armed Forces,” said Sergio Nunes, senior vice president of Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division for Latin America. “This partnership represents Hexagon’s commitment to defense and security in Latin America and strengthens our leadership in providing geospatial solutions for mission-critical environments, where robustness, interoperability and high performance are essential.” Hexagon’s Luciad software is widely used by systems integrators and defense organizations around the world, including NATO and its members, Brazilian defense agencies and the defense ministries of Colombia and Mexico, for the development of command-and-control systems, air defense, border surveillance, combat systems, GEOINT and more.
