Abu Dhabi state-owned defence conglomerate EDGE will announce several new unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) next year, its chief executive said on Monday, according to Reuters.
“I think by early next year … you will see us announcing a number of UAV platforms,” Faisal al-Bannai told an online summit, without disclosing further details.
Autonomous capabilities, including drones, were a “strategic need” for the United Arab Emirates (UAE), he said.
Abu Dhabi formed EDGE in late 2019, grouping together more than 25 state-owned and private entities in the UAE defence sector with a combined annual revenue of $5 billion.
