At the Dubai Airshow 2021, Raytheon Technologies will showcase new solutions to help support commercial air travel growth following COVID-19. The research and development of platforms and systems also aimed to reduce the carbon footprint of its aerospace and defense customers, among a wide range of other commercial and defense-related capabilities.
“Our combined company can now deliver technologies and capabilities to benefit our customers never like before,” said Alan Davis, chief executive of Abu Dhabi-based Raytheon Emirates (REL), a subsidiary of Raytheon Technologies.
He added, “We are looking forward to highlighting critical defensive capabilities such as our early warning radar, solutions to counter the growing threat of unmanned aircraft systems, and GhostEye, the lower-tier air, and missile defense radar advancing through development for the US Army.”
The Dubai Airshow, which runs from November 14 to 18 at Al Maktoum International Airport, will be the first since Raytheon Technologies was formed in April 2020, following the merger of Raytheon Company and United Technologies Corporation.
Raytheon Technologies will demonstrate its capabilities in high energy lasers, counter unmanned aircraft systems, integrated air, and missile defense, air dominance solutions, secure communications and navigation, command and control, integrated avionics, and ejection seats, among other defense solutions on display at the Dubai Airshow.
The company’s leadership in the multi-domain battlespace, which is based on its ability to seamlessly connect mission-critical platforms in the air, land, sea, cyber, and space, will also be highlighted.
Collins Aerospace, Pratt & Whitney, Raytheon Intelligence & Space, and Raytheon Missiles & Defense are the four companies that makeup Raytheon Technologies today.
This year’s event will focus on Raytheon Technologies’ involvement in reimagining the passenger journey in the aftermath of the COVID-19 epidemic. Experts will be on hand to discuss several options, such as touch-free kiosks and biometric-enabled passenger processing systems.
“This year’s Dubai Airshow represents an important milestone in the recovery of the aviation sector from the impact of COVID-19, and we at Raytheon Technologies are proud to be able to contribute platforms and systems to support that rebuilding effort,” said Amal Osman, Managing Director of Collins Customer & Account Management for the Middle East and Africa.
