The parent company will oversee the customisation of solutions to meet the operational requirements of end-users. It will also lead the transfer of technologies to domestic partners.

Elbit Systems international marketing and business development executive vice-president Ran Kril said: “The Abraham Accords provide a sound basis for business collaborations in the region.

“The UAE and other countries in the region are important new markets for Elbit Systems.

“We believe that our broad portfolio of solutions positions us well to address the needs and opportunities in this region.”

Meanwhile, Elbit Systems is taking part in the Dubai Airshow 2021 being held at the Dubai World Central (DWC) in the UAE.

It is reported that six major Israeli defence companies are participating in the event, which kicked off on 14 November.

Last year, Bahrain, Israel and the UAE signed the Abraham Accords agreement. The US-arranged deal aims to establish ‘peace, diplomatic and friendly relations, co-operation, and complete normalisation of ties’ between the nations.

At the air show, Elbit Systems is highlighting several of its technologies and systems related to multi-domain networked warfare, airborne protection and precision fires, as well as aircraft vision.

Recently, the UK Army selected Elbit Systems UK to deliver the Interim Combined Arms Virtual Simulation (Deployable) platform.
