Main Activities:

GICAT is a professional organization established in 1978 grouping over 220 French companies. These range from major contractors to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and research

institutes that have an industrial activity and/or provide consultancy services to the land, air-land security and defence sectors.

GICAT’s international development is based on the EUROSATORY international trade show, organized by its subsidiary COGES, as well as MILIPOL, and mainstream defence and/or security trade shows abroad.


Reference customers:

The land and air-land security sector

As a result of its members’ significant twofold industrial offer (mobility, individual protection, communication, robotics, CBRN, etc.) GICAT has naturally moved towards developing activities in the fields of land and air-land security, with a focus on their specific features (e.g. doctrines, budgets, short acquisition cycles).

The association maintains close links with major public and private actors concerned by land and air-land security (e.g. French police and gendarmerie, civil security, customs, etc.).

This domain is split into several fields, including training, in service support and technical support :

  • Non-lethal weapons
  • Armoured vehicles
  • Biometry, CCTV, perimeter surveillance, access control
  • CBRN (protection and detection)
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Electronics and Communication Systems
  • Air-land (helicopters, UAV)
  • Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV)
  • Combat service, support & training
