We presented the MRI in Africa for the first time. We were located in the best spot of the show, right across the entrance hall. The idea was to introduce the system in a continent that does not have big budgets to protect their boarders from intruders. Africa has not developed radars or cameras to carry out surveillance missions. This is way we believe that we could help to protect African´s boarders in a very efficient and cost effective way.
Marrakech Air show proves to be Africa’s foremost trade show for civil and military aviation. It is for a fact a major mouthpiece for the industry in the African region.
