Airbus showcases security solutions at Kuwait show

Airbus, a leading provider of communications and collaborations solutions, is showcasing its latest security solutions at the 5th edition of the Gulf Defense & Aerospace, being held in Kuwait.

The event is dedicated to the defence, aerospace, homeland security, and safety and security, and  is being held under the patronage of Kuwait’s First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, Sheikh Naser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah.

The event which opened today (December 10) will run until December 12. It is part of Kuwait’s Vision 2035, which aims to transform Kuwait into a regional and international hub for commerce and business.

Airbus is presenting their key security solutions, including the Tactilon Dabat terminal and smartphone in-one, Tactilon Agnet collaboration application and platform, and RCS- Radio Communication Systems, said a statement.

The Radio Console System, used by police forces, is a modern Tetra dispatching console for control room dispatchers to easily and quickly access Tetra communication features, it said.

Tactilon Agnet brings secure communications to smart devices and gives users the possibility to benefit from voice, data, video, and location services in a controlled manner with reliability and security; meeting the needs of both public safety organisations and  transport, utility and industry users.

The company is also highlighting application demos for the Tactilon Dabat, a combination of smartphone and full Tetra radio in one smart, strong, and secure device.
Andrew Forbes, head of Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region for Secure Land Communications at Airbus, said: “Kuwait is making rapid advances in the defence and security sectors, implementing the latest technologies that will help the country’s economy progress.”

“Our participation at the exhibition seeks to intensify our cooperation with the Gulf countries, which are increasingly focusing on strengthening their armed forces and security measures,” he said.

“Airbus has deservedly earned recognition as a reliable and independent partner for effective and reliable mission-critical communications in the Middle East region,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
