The organizers of the Joint Precision Fires Future Conference (JPF2) 2016 announced that the event will be officially hosted by Tawazun Dynamics.
The JPF2 conference will be held in Abu Dhabi, UAE, at the Armed Forces Officers Club on 16 November 2016.
The Defense Services Marketing Council (DSMC) said the JPF2 will be the largest joint precision fires conference in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).
Tawazun Dynamics participation as the official host not only further demonstrates the importance of the JPF2 Conference to military cooperation in the GCC region, but specifically highlights the key role that the UAE is playing in the advancement of joint precision fires technologies.
Mr. Matthew Cochran, Chairman and CEO of Defense Services Marketing Council (DSMC), said: “We are thrilled that Tawazun Dynamics will be the official host of the JPF2 Conference in its inaugural year. As an organization, Tawazun Dynamics strives to be at the forefront of new technological developments that support the best strategic outcomes for their clients. Conferences like this one present an unrivaled opportunity to share knowledge and inspiration that will secure stronger, more effective results that benefit us all.”
Tawazun Dynamics is the Middle East’s first facility for the development, manufacture, assembly and integration of precision-guided systems for conventional air munitions. The company is part of the Emirates Defence Industries Company (EDIC).
With still more than seven months to go until the event, the organizers have been overwhelmed by the level of interest demonstrated by industry participants, reflecting a strong desire for bringing together the key regional stakeholders from around the globe to discuss growing need for timely and accurate precision fires.
Speakers and participants from dozens of countries have been invited to participate in the Conference, representing a broad cross-section of partner militaries and an extensive knowledge base in the development, deployment and use of precision fires system.
The growing need for an effective, targeted military response to emergent threats has once more brought into sharp focus the importance of cooperation across the Gulf Cooperation Council in developing collective approaches to security.
To this end, acknowledging the importance of high-level policy collaboration in engaging with common threats, the Conference will provide key regional stakeholders with the opportunity to consider avenues for even closer cooperation in the development and deployment of new defense technologies in the area of precision fires.
“2016 will be the first ever Joint Precision Fires Future Conference and the involvement of Tawazun Dynamics as the official host, with their extensive experience developing and manufacturing cutting-edge weapons systems, will be a serious partnership that adds a lot of value for our GCC delegates,’ Cochran concluded.
