Meteksan Defence to exhibit innovative solutions for the naval forces at DIMDEX 2022

DIMDEX 2022 Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition and Conference will be held in Doha, the capital of Qatar, on 21-23 March 2022, hosted by the Qatar Armed Forces. Meteksan Defence will participate in the fair with its high-tech products, which will bring defence industry companies together with the Naval Forces of the Gulf, Asian and African countries.

The products that Meteksan Defence will exhibit at DIMDEX 2022 are listed as follows:
ULAQ Unmanned Surface Vehicle
KAPAN Counter Drone System
NAZAR Laser Electronic Warfare System
PELIKAN RF Guided Missile Simulator

Meteksan Defence President Selcuk Kerem Alparslan stated the following in his statement on the participation in the fair: “In the process since our establishment, we have developed unique and advanced technology solutions for the Naval Forces, especially in underwater acoustics and platform simulators, and we have achieved the success of making them available to many different countries. Our Damage Control Simulator has been preferred by four different countries and we have become the world leader in this field. YAKAMOS 2020 Hull Mounted Sonar System has been exported to two more countries after it was started to be used in the MILGEM Corvettes of the Turkish Naval Forces. In addition, our success in a field where very few countries are working on in the world, such as NAZAR Laser Electronic Warfare System, indicates us the point we have reached as Meteksan Defence.

At the DIMDEX 2022 Fair, we will exhibit for the first time our ULAQ Anti-Surface Warfare Vehicle, ULAQ Anti-Submarine Warfare Vehicle and the new 6x6 Mobile Coastal Control Station. We expect an intense interest in ULAQ, a global brand in Unmanned Surface Vehicles, at this fair. I am confident that our products will attract visitors in terms of technology and innovation.”

Meteksan Defence will host its visitors at DIMDEX 2022 at its stand no. 316 in Hall 5.
