Bayanat, a developer of comprehensive geospatial solutions and data aggregation services, has signed an agreement with Collins Aerospace, a US-based aerospace and defence firm, to develop advanced aerospace solutions, said a report.
The project is being developed under Tawazun Economic Programme, which is overseen by Tawazun Economic Council, added the Wam report.
The announcement was made on the sidelines of the Dubai Airshow 2019, and will see a team of eight Emirati engineers work on the ISTAR (intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance) project, which includes software development, training, and systems integration among its components.
Matar Ali Al Romaithi, chief economic development officer at Tawazun Economic Council, said that they are pleased to facilitate this collaboration, out of the organisation’s ongoing commitment to enable the UAE’s defence and security industry by promoting investments and projects across this vital sector.
"We anticipate robust capability growth in terms of economic value and capability development from this agreement as it brings about a very high technology and know-how, available only to limited number of technologically advanced nations," he added.
Mohammed Al Beloushi, CEO of Bayanat, noted that the collaborative solutions will be developed and tested by Bayanat.
