The National Search and Rescue Center (NSRC) of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is currently hosting the International Search and Rescue conference and exhibition in Abu Dhabi.
NSRC has used the conference to formally announce that they have selected the Smith Myers ARTEMIS Mobile Phone detection, location, and communication system for installation across their fleet of Search & Rescue Helicopters.
“Smith Myers and ARTEMIS outperformed others during extensive in-country testing. This new and unique sensor will lead to more rapid and positive Search and Rescue mission outcomes,” said H.E. Dr. Stephen A. Toumajan, General Manager, NSRC.
“The NSRC has an ambitious vision to explore the future and consolidate a culture of excellence, to make the UAE among the world’s leading countries in terms of competitiveness and overall development,” he added.
He further added that the conference was organized with the guidance of the UAE’s leadership on the importance of preparing for challenges, looking ahead to the future, and harnessing new and advanced technological tools to serve humanity, as well as to support the community and national economy, and ensure the future for the next generations.
Andrew Munro, Company Director at Smith Myers, attending the conference as a guest speaker, said, “We are proud to be working with NSRC to bring this new and life-saving capability to the UAE. Working with NSRC has been a great experience. But for us, this is where the relationship begins, as we support the transition to operations of our new T-A ARTEMIS system with NSRC”.
Organized by the NSRC, and held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, the conference and the exhibition has attracted specialized speakers from local, regional, and international levels, as well as exhibits from companies from around the world.
