The announcement comes after the company has participated in the Dubai Airshow 2021.
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), a key manufacturer of aerial and astronautic systems for military and civilian usage, will open an office in the UAE in the coming weeks.
In a statement, Israeli Group said: “The new office will strengthen IAI’s growing cooperation with the local and regional governments, industries, companies, and academia, and will provide additional business opportunities for future collaborations on technological developments in the defence and civilian sectors.”
The office opens following the company’s participation at the Dubai Airshow 2021, during which a number of cooperation agreements were signed, including with Emirates Airlines on cargo conversions and with the defence company EDGE on developing advanced unmanned surface vessels (USVs) and electro-optics.
These agreements follow a successful year of cooperation between IAI and other Gulf-based companies, including Etihad Airways, Gulf Air, and G-42.
The Airshow followed IAI’s participation in the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) in Dubai last month, said the statement.
Opening an office in the UAE is a testament to IAI’s growing collaboration with the UAE and the region as a whole, it added.
