IDEX: BAE Systems shows depth of partnership role in region

Posted 24 February 2021 · Add Comment

Cutting edge technologies that deliver defence and security solutions across multi-domains have been at the centre of BAE Systems’ exhibit at this week’s IDEX show. But at the heart of it all has been the emphasis on the established partnerships the company has across the Middle East.

Jonathan Bird, UAE Director, BAE Systems, said: “Across the region, we play a vital role in supporting national visions and strategic agendas through the transfer of knowledge, skills, and technology.”

Partnership creation has been a central pillar of BAE Systems’ presence in the Middle East for many years and a number of those partners will be present on the BAE Systems stand including Kingdom Partner Companies (KPC) which deliver technologies, training, and capability into Saudi Arabia.

Visitors interested in the air defence capabilities learned about the Eurofighter Typhoon, the most advanced multi-role combat aircraft available on the market today, as well as the company’s role in the F-35 Lightning II programme.

Other BAE Systems products on display will include the Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) systems, the Common Missile Warning System (CMWS), Tactical Radio Systems, and M-Code military GPS products.
