“Being part of one of the region’s leading industry exhibitions enables us to demonstrate how our technological advancements and defence solutions help secure the complete defence domain and address the priorities of our customers in Qatar and the region,” said Leslie W. Bonde, Jr. managing director, Raytheon Doha. “Our participation in DIMDEX reaffirms Raytheon’s ongoing commitment to being an effective partner in Qatar’s current and future defence, military and civilian needs, while also aligning with the country’s long-term economic and security ambitions.”

Raytheon will highlight its expertise in developing advanced counter-unmanned aircraft systems and a portfolio of combat-proven air and missile defence sensors and effectors. Of note, Raytheon will showcase the Lower-Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor, GhostEye MR medium-range air and missile defence radar, and the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System, all systems designed to detect and defeat complex threats across the battlespace.

Raytheon will also highlight its existing Early Warning Radar programme in Qatar. The radar can track more than 1,000 objects at the same time from more than 5,000 kilometers away. It can tell ballistic missile and air-breathing threats from non-threats, and it can deter potential attacks.

DIMDEX 2024 will be held under the theme “Igniting the Future of Maritime Security and Beyond” bringing together key decision makers from around the globe to engage in three days of commercial exchange, showcase their latest innovations and integrated solutions, and provide thought leaders with an opportunity to discuss the latest challenges impacting international maritime security.
