Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, the show will take place from the 21st to 25th of February, 2021 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).
IDEX is the largest defense exhibition in the Middle East and North Africa, and is an ideal platform for Boeing and its subsidiaries, Insitu and Liquid Robotics, to highlight their key products and services that complement the region’s existing defense capabilities and support its security requirements.
“I am proud to say that Boeing shares more than 40 years of partnership with the United Arab Emirates, and more than 70 years across the Middle East region. With safety precautions in place by organizers and exhibitors alike, IDEX will be an opportunity for us to engage with our regional customers on their existing and future security needs. Boeing will support the considerable potential for growth in the aerospace sector by offering the right defense capabilities, infrastructure expansion and services at the right time,” said Bernard Dunn, President of Boeing Middle East, Turkey and Africa.
Boeing Defense Space & Security (BDS) backlog now stands at $61 billion with 32% of that coming from outside the United States. Looking to the future, over the next five years BDS is pursuing $170 billion across 41 countries in international defense and services opportunities.
Boeing continues to work closely with the United Arab Emirates and other governments and defense forces in the region who will be present at IDEX, and play a key role in enhancing security in the region.
At IDEX, Boeing will be holding discussions with customers about advanced platforms such as T-7 Advanced Pilot Training System, the KC-46A Pegasus aerial refueling tanker, AH-64 Apache attack helicopter, CH-47F Chinook advanced multi-mission helicopter, F-15EX multi-role combat fighter and the Compact Laser Weapon System (CLWS). Boeing will also focus on its autonomous systems portfolio, in particular the Integrator ER and ScanEagle by our subsidiary, Insitu, and Wave Glider by our subsidiary Liquid Robotics. In addition, Boeing will also discuss its diverse sustainment and training solutions, including an expansive supply chain and logistics network, in-country partnerships and on-the-ground support, and OEM reach back for its installed base of defense platforms, future deliveries and near term sales opportunities.
Given the current environment, Boeing plans to take all the necessary precautions to safely engage with its customers and the media at the show. Access to the booth will be limited and appointments are encouraged. Full article
