BAE Systems will be showcasing armoured vehicles in the Middle East for the first time, as well as the latest in defence and security technology and innovation during IDEX, the tri-service defence exhibition in Abu Dhabi.
“BAE Systems is dedicated to supporting the UAE with all its current and future defence and security requirements and IDEX provides the ideal platform to demonstrate our capabilities and meet with our industrial partners,” said Ben Bridge, Managing Director, BAE Systems Middle East and Africa.
“Abu Dhabi is our regional hub and we are committed to long term, sustainable programmes with customers in the region, including UAE industry and academia in line with the governments’ 2030 Vision,” he added.
At IDEX, BAE Systems’ stand will feature full size vehicles of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, an integral part of U.S. infantry operations and a battle-proven, continuously-improved, multi-role platform, in its first appearance in the region, as well as the RG35 mine resistant ambush protected vehicle.
The LEMUR30 remote weapon system will be exhibited on both the BAE Systems and Abu Dhabi Mar stands, whilst BAE Systems Detica will be displaying the latest in security protection, including NetReveal, for intelligence led investigations, and CyberReveal, which counters the advanced persistent threat in cyberspace.
Demonstrating BAE Systems’ strengths in working in partnership with other companies, BAE Systems’ products will be showcased on other stands, including International Golden Group, Tawazun, Abu Dhabi Mar (NAVDEX) and Military Industries Corporation (AVF).
In addition, a full scale replica of a Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jet will be in the outside display and BAE Systems’ revolutionary helmet mounted display system will be exhibited on the Eurofighter stand.
IDEX, held in Abu Dhabi from 17-21 February, is the largest event of its kind in the Middle East and BAE Systems has exhibited at every show since its inception in 1993. BAE Systems will be located on stand 05-C25. The Eurofighter stand is located at 06-B21 and the Typhoon Full Scale Replica can be visited at CP-220.
