 “Saudi Arabia is a key strategic market for us – as demonstrated during IDEX last year – and we look forward to building upon that at this inaugural event by announcing new cutting-edge products, and forging valuable partnerships and agreements that fulfil the UAE’s vision of developing sovereign capabilities and building a sustainable knowledge-based economy with a greater emphasis on export deals.”

Seven of EDGE’s entities will display advanced solutions and products, including NIMR’s AJBAN Mk2 and JAIS 4x4 battle-proven land platforms; AL JASOOR’s Rabdan 8x8 infantry fighting vehicles; and ADASI’s QX-3, QX-4, and Garmoosha fixed-wing and rotary-wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
