Preparations are now in full swing for the Middle East Military Technology Conference (MEMTEC) being held alongside the Bahrain International Defence Exhibition from October 29th – 30th, 2019.

Sessions will discuss matters such as the current status and future of military technology, cyber defence strategies, the impact of artificial intelligence on the functions of armed forces, the use of military technology to develop simulation models of war, the impact of military technology on regional conflicts, and the future of military industries in Middle East. MEMTEC aims to showcase how global developments and advancements in the defence sector will reshape conflicts in the Middle East.

In a recent press release, Dr Abdulla bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, Chairman of DERASAT and Chairman of MEMTEC, spoke about the importance of using technology to find solutions and create closer ties, “Bahrain is a force for peace and global understanding. We have understood well the importance of military alliances to establish security and stability in the world in cooperation with friendly countries. The importance of military technology in the development of armed forces and in responding to threats to national security as well as its role in minimising post-conflict impact is undoubted. MEMTEC will examine the challenges facing this technology.”

During the last few decades, military technology has been a key focus for many countries, especially in the West, as reflected in the volume of investment in this field. Technology not only enhances the capabilities of armed forces, but also significantly impacts the quality and effectiveness in preparation for national defence.
