Rolls Royce will use the Dubai Airshow next month to highlight its ‘IntelligentEngine’ notion, as it looks to capitalise on new opportunities in the Middle East aviation market.
The Dubai Airshow takes place from 17 – 21 November, and will see around 1,300 exhibitors from around the world shine a light on their products and services.
John Kelly, SVP Middle East, Africa & Central Asia, for Rolls Royce, said: “[IntelligentEngine] is moving at pace toward a future where our engines are increasingly connected, contextually aware and comprehending, and as a result, more intelligent.\
“We will proudly showcase our engine technologies, and truly demonstrate the Power of Trent, alongside the technologies that are part of the IntelligentEngine vision, which we see as opening new opportunities to pioneer the way we provide power to customers.”
Among the exhibitors at the show will be S&K Technologies from the USA and Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence from Italy, both appearing for the first time this year.
Returning industry giants will be demonstrating their own advances in technologies across the entire aerospace industry, including Airbus, Rolls Royce, Boeing and Lockheed Martin.
Bernard Dunn, president of Boeing Middle East, North Africa and Turkey, said: “Every country in this region has strong visions dedicated to diversifying their economies, developing their workforce, protecting their citizens, improving infrastructure and more. Aerospace will continue to play an important role in the region’s growth story.”
Global Air Traffic Management (GATM) taking place within the Dubai Airshow, will present a discussion on air traffic control in the UAE, the GCC and globally.
“Emerging technologies are altering the way in which we approach issues in air traffic management,” said Attila Simon, director of business development at HungaroControl.
The Dubai Airshow will also feature a focus on the space sector, with an exhibition area and two conferences produced in collaboration with the UAE Space Agency: Women in Space and Tech Talks.
