Cutting-Edge Technology and Education Take Center Stage at Middle East's Largest Naval Defense Exhibition

Middle East Defense Exhibition

A naval integrated bridge system, far-reaching air and missile defense radars and powerful sensors are among the innovative capabilities Raytheon is highlighting at the Doha International Maritime Defense Exhibition (DIMDEX).

The Middle East’s leading maritime and naval defense conference will take place March 25-27 in the Qatari capital and is set to be the biggest yet.

Visitors can take the helm of a ship and navigate major waterways with Raytheon's cutting-edge Naval Integrated Bridge system.

With relationships across the Middle East spanning nearly 50 years, Raytheon is closely aligned with regional leaders in support of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and will be showcasing its initiatives at the show.

“Our dual-language exhibition, MathAlive!, is currently traveling across the region designed to inspire and encourage students to pursue careers in math, technology, engineering and science,” said Matt Riddle, president, Raytheon International Inc. “So far the exhibition has touched over 150,000 students, families and teachers.”

The entrance to MathAlive! Middle East in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The U.S. version of MathAlive! has been a hit at the Smithsonian Institution and other museums.

Raytheon will also highlight the following capabilities at the show:

Naval and Maritime Solutions
The Naval Integrated Bridge system features multi-function consoles for radar and electronic sea chart display. It displays a variety of onboard sensors, as well as the ship’s steering control and communication systems to provide the operator with the controls and information needed for navigation and surveillance.

Air and Missile Defense
Raytheon's proven interceptors, radars and space sensors work together to provide protection against ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, aircraft and other threats.

Command, Control and Sensors systems work in concert to obtain, process and distribute information to optimize data-to-decision effectiveness — enabling forces to respond promptly and appropriately to constantly evolving threats.

Strategic Infrastructure Protection
Raytheon provides secure, layered protection against threats to strategic infrastructure targets. The company has designed and implemented systems for industrial operations, airport and maritime port facilities, nuclear energy facilities and government capital regions.
