    Most interesting are these two pods which combined targeting/FLIR with IRST functions

    The last mintue of this video will show you how Fire fighting airplane work. The plane fly into the river or lake and scope up the water with speed, 20 seconds is more than enough to fill the tanks in the airplane.

    finally, this is a picture at their display showing how AUEODS may be carried by a flanker on the wing tips (although in my last post they are also shown to be able to be carried by underwing pylons).
    note the ECM pods+SRAAM on a single pylon, freeing up other pylons.

    Okay, prepare yourselves...

    So, at the interactive display, one can even "leave" the A-Star room and click on the table to see three "booklets" showing their products with a lot of technical info.

    There's literally over a hundred pages of pics that I just downloaded and I'm uploading to imgur as albums. I can't understand the details, but by now I'm pretty convinced that the products of Beijing A-Star at the display are not made up.. and they offer a lot of products, from IRST for aircraft, to targeting pods, to EO balls, to engines, to DAS type apertures, to recon pods, to radar seekers and more...

    There are three albums, I'll post a selection of images from each, the links for each album is below. I have to say, this is the kind of open source info we'd expect from a western defence expo.

    Album 1: http://imgur.com/a/snlQm
    Album 2: http://imgur.com/a/nQy6Z
    Album 3 (least exciting and smallest): http://imgur.com/a/IJ4U8

    Album 2, the AUEODS pods from before:

    what's a bit weird is that a few of their systems (such as the DAS and the 3D imaging pod) seem to be the same as those offered by a US company called wehrli and associates... i'm not sure if those systems are Beijing A-Star's repackaging of wehrli's products, or what.
    The other products of A-Star seem to be self developed without the logos of other companies.
