BAE Systems will showcase M777 Ultra Lightweight Howitzer at DefExpo in Goa, India next week.

In addition to the M777 Ultra Lightweight Howitzer, the Company will showcase the Archer 155 mm FH 77 BW L52 Self-Propelled Field Howitzer along with Hyper Velocity Projectile, 81 mm Mortar, 105 mm & 155 mm Artillery Ammunition, 120 mm Tank Ammunition and the 3P Ammo, the company said in a statement Wednesday.

Underlining BAE Systems’ capabilities for the naval forces are the world-leading Mk 45 Mod 4 Naval Gun System, a proven, reliable and highly effective automatic 5-inch (127-mm) naval gun system, and the 40Mk4 Naval Gun, an extremely flexible weapon system with its high rate of fire and capability to switch between optimized ammunition types.

Broadsword, Spine, a new wearable technology which incorporates a power and data distribution network suitable for the military, law enforcement and emergency services who need to charge electronic equipment 'on the move', will also be presented during the exposition.

Recognising the ever-increasing importance of cyber in the defence mix, BAE Systems will also be showcasing its cyber defence and intelligence capabilities at DefExpo, giving our experts the opportunity to engage with local sector participants and demonstrate our unique set of solutions, systems, experience and processes. These, combined with our Cyber Special forces - some of the most skilled people in the world - enable us to defend against cyber-attacks, fraud and financial crime, enable intelligence-led policing and solve complex data problems.

The Hawk advanced jet trainer will also be at the BAE stands. In May 2015, BAE Systems and HAL signed a memorandum of understanding surrounding the Hawk programme in India. This covered a number of areas for potential future development including an advanced version of Hawk.

BAE Systems has selected Mahindra and Mahindra as its partner for the proposed Assembly, integration and test facility in India for the Ultra-Light Howitzer contract.
