Tawazun Council, Naval Group, and Marakeb Technologies have formalised a Joint Development Agreement aimed at advancing the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) defence capabilities through the creation of the National Combat Management System (NCMS).

This collaboration emphasises the transfer of technology and expertise to enhance the UAE’s defence sector, particularly in developing national defence solutions.

The partnership was officially sealed in Abu Dhabi by executives Shareef Hashim Al Hashmi of Tawazun Council, Lilian Brayle of Naval Group, and Basel Shuhaiber of Marakeb Technologies, alongside senior officials. The initiative aligns with the UAE’s strategy to fortify its defence and security industries and meet the growing demands for innovative defence solutions.

Naval Group is set to collaborate with Marakeb Technologies LLC, a subsidiary of the Strategic Development Fund Company, which has been selected as the national partner for this project. The development aims to equip the UAE Navy with a custom National Combat Management System for integration into their naval fleet, including both new and existing ships.

H.E. Muammar Abdulla Abushehab, CEO of Tawazun, underscored the project’s role in strengthening the UAE’s defence and security sector by providing advanced technology and equipment. The NCMS is designed to enhance operational capabilities, offer national defence solutions, and support the armed forces with cutting-edge products. Abushehab highlighted the sovereignty benefits of the project, including control over customisation and system updates to meet the Naval Forces’ evolving needs.

Pierre Éric Pommellet, CEO of Naval Group, expressed his company’s commitment to supporting the UAE’s defence ambitions with advanced naval combat system capacities. Meanwhile, Basel Shuhaiber of Marakeb Technologies highlighted the significance of transferring Naval Group’s expertise to the UAE, marking a milestone in the nation’s maritime capabilities and setting new regional standards for maritime excellence.
