On Tuesday 13th February, the UKDSC hosted ADS’ Defence Export Working Group.
ADS provided an update on their proposed Business Opportunities Centre, and advised what the Disposal Equipment Sales Authority is currently working on in the international marketplace.
The meeting was utilised to identify international events and related themes covering the period from September 2017 to December 2018 that would be relevant to UK industry and government alike. The discussion ensured that ADS, MOD and industry have a clear plan moving forward into attending these events.
In addition, discussions also centred around the UKDSC’s Market Intelligence Centre and ICE Lab demonstrations, with the attendees spending time in each of the facilities.
There was strong representation from numerous UK industries along with government:
- ADS Group,
- ATLAS ELEKTRONIK UK LTD
- Babcock International
- BAE Systems
- Department for International Trade
- Farnborough International
- Lockheed Martin UK
