Under land systems, EDGE will display autonomous ground vehicles, including mission-proven tracked UGVs, a rapidly deployable armed robotic vehicle, and small UGVs.
The event will also mark the first time that ETIMAD, a technology solutions and services company with a focus on security systems solutions, systems integration, projects fulfilment, and execution in the fields of border and civil security, is participating at UMEX as part of EDGE Group.
