Raytheon to showcase innovation and advanced capabilities for the Gulf region at IDEX 2017

Posted 16 February 2017 · Add Comment

Raytheon Company will feature its advanced capabilities in air and missile defence, border security, and land and naval systems among a wide range of innovative solutions for Gulf region customers attending International Defence Exhibition 2017.

While at IDEX, Raytheon will also highlight its three decades of partnership with the United Arab Emirates. “Over the last 30 years, Raytheon and the UAE have built a close and enduring relationship supporting the Emirates’ civil defense infrastructure, security, local manufacturing and training on a number of strategic fronts,” said Chris Davis, president of Raytheon International in the UAE.

Davis added: “Over the years, Raytheon has expanded its UAE customers from one to nine, and have diversified our partnerships in line with the country’s economic aspirations and development roadmaps, such as the Abu Dhabi Vision 2030.”

Raytheon has also expanded its offerings in the Emirates and the Gulf region to include cybersecurity technology and support – an imperative focus highlighted at the 2015 UAE Security Forum sponsored by the company in partnership with the Arab Gulf States Institute and the UAE’s National Electronic Security Authority. That same year, Raytheon launched its Cyber Academy program in the UAE, conducting cyber skills workshops for Emirati students at Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi.

Davis said: “We also launched MathAlive! Gulf region tour in the UAE in 2013, and it is still underway today. The exhibit Emirates debut comprised of three stops (Abu Dhabi, Ras Al Khaimah and Sharjah) made possible by partnering with five local educational and cultural institutions (Abu Dhabi Technology Development Committee, Higher Colleges of Technology, Sharjah Science Museum, Khalifa University and RAK Colleges).”

Currently in Oman, MathAlive! has made 10 stops in four Gulf countries (UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar) and has been experienced by approximately 300,000 visitors.
