The Middle East Military Technology Conference (MEMTEC) Examines the Importance of Tech Solutions for Defence

The Middle East Military Technology Conference (MEMTEC) will be held alongside the upcoming Bahrain International Defence Exhibition & Conference (BIDEC), it was announced last month, during the period from 28-30 October 2019. Held under the patronage of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, the Conference will contextualise the exhibition within the regional efforts to modernise capabilities. Once again, the Bahrain Center for Strategic, International and Energy Studies (DERASAT) is the Knowledge Partner for the Conference alongside BIDEC.

The Middle East Military Technology Conference (MEMTEC) will discuss matters including 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.

H.E. Dr Shaikh Abdulla bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, Chairman of MEMTEC and Chairman of DERASAT, 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.

Preparations are now in full swing for Bahrain International Defence Exhibition & Conference (BIDEC) 2019, scheduled to be held from 28-30 October 2019.

H.H. Major General Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Commander of Bahrain Royal Guard is the Chairman of the BIDEC 2019 Supreme Committee, with key support from the Bahrain Defence Force, National Guard and other government Ministries and Authorities.
