UAE-based defence and military contractor EDGE has signed an MOU with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to establish an electro-optics maintenance centre in the UAE.

The two companies signed an agreement at Dubai Airshow and will work together to establish the maintenance centre for a selection of IAI’s systems.

In addition to maintenance, the centre will advance local marketing of these systems, the two companies said.

The companies will also form a standing joint committee to identify opportunities in the field in the UAE, and to expand future cooperation in other countries.
