Come March and you will be treated to the Unmanned System Exhibition (UMEX 2016) in Abu Dhabi.
Keeping pace with industry innovations and market requirements, UMEX 2016 will be a standalone show that will feature live flying demonstrations and will provide an ideal platform to discuss the latest developments, trends and innovations in the UAS sector in the region. Notably, over the years, UAE has seen an unprecedented investment in the sector of UAS and UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles).
This yearâ€™s UMEX will have a broader scope that will include a Military Simulation Training (MST) zone to reflect the growth and investment in the UAE and GCC countries. UMEX and MST are ideally positioned to provide a professional platform for manufacturers to meet operators and establish lucrative business relationships while promoting an assortment of benefits of unmanned systems and military simulation and training.
â€œThe upcoming edition of UMEX assumes special significance as it is being held for the first time as a standalone event after being launched at last yearâ€™s International Defence Exhibition (IDEX),â€ said His Excellency Brigadier General Rashid Mohammed
Al-Shamsi, Chairman of the eventsâ€™ higher organising committee.
