Boeing will be on-ground exhibiting its diverse range of defence products and services capabilities at IDEX 2021.
“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 organisers 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 defence capabilities, infrastructure expansion and services at the right time,” said Bernard Dunn, President of Boeing Middle East, Turkey and Africa.
Boeing continues to work closely with the United Arab Emirates and other governments and defence forces in the region who will be present at IDEX, and play a key role in enhancing security in the region, he added.
“We 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 defence platforms, future deliveries and near term sales opportunities,” Dunn added.
The T-7 is a new advanced pilot training system and Boeing received USAF T-7 contract IN 2018 for 351 jets, 46 simulators and associated ground equipment worth $9.2 billion.
