Milipol 2017 : anti-terrorism at the heart of innovations.

Paris, November 25th 2017.-  The fight against the threat of terrorism was at the heart of innovations during MILIPOL 2017.
The 20th edition of the Milipol trade show opened on Tuesday, November 21st, in Villepinte, Seine-Saint-Denis, and was closed yesterday, November 24th. This global event, which aims to focus on the internal security of states, was very much followed this year.

Officials at the fair closed one chinese stall and ordered the withdrawal of chinese items from others after the NGO informed the media.

Expected every year by security professionals, the new edition of the Milipol trade show was held in Villepinte since Tuesday, November 21st, until Friday 24th. Interior Minister Gérard Collomb was among the politicians present at the opening of the 20th edition this Tuesday morning. “It is essential to develop our own know-how in intelligence, sensitive data protection and cybercrime” said  the Interior Minister Mr. Collomb, during the inauguration of MILIPOL 2017, on November 21st.

In a context of very high terrorist threat, each innovation is likely to interest the authorities. Among the novelties: a drone that can help rescuers.

A few meters further, blocks of street furniture have been designed to withstand the impact of vehicles up to 7.5 tons launched at 45 km / h. A discreet protection system made in France to fight ram attacks. Security has become a major economic issue for individuals, as for the authorities. The security market grew by 4.2% in France in 2016 and now has a turnover of more than 26 billion euros.

Technology is changing the face of the state security. “It’s no longer Milipol, it’s Milidrones!”, said a French gendarme, met at random by the alleys of Milipol. The twentieth edition of this must-attend event is dedicated to technology in all its forms. More resistant clothing, new weapons, or innovative investigative tools appear on the stands of 949 exhibitors. It is up to buyers to sort out the wheat from the chaff, and to find the tool which, far from being a simple gadget, will prove to be valuable tomorrow for the action of the police.

Predictive mapping, a topic very popular in recent years, is now more discreet. The Gendarmerie, like the Police, seems to be on stand-by on this issue, mainly because of incomplete or insufficient statistical data. But whether for the fight against terrorism or public security, one of the crucial battles for innovation is played today in the communication tools made available to police and gendarmes.

 

Global security
The Global Security Market is worth nearly $ 550 billion and is growing steadily, with a + 8.3% increase over last year and has revenue for 2018 around 9.5%.
