DSEi 2011: KADDB pushes on with C2 capability

15th September 2011 - 15:49 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) continues to expand its capability in systems integration, according to CEO Shadi Ramzi Majali.

Speaking to Shephard at DSEi on 15 September, Majali said KAADB was starting with C2 and was 'starting to be heavily involved in this subject'.

At IDEX in Abu Dhabi, UAE, earlier in the year, Majali expressed his interest in forming a specialist unit to develop tactical communications in order to fulfil KADDB's 'greatest capability gap'.

KADDB is looking at working on systems integration of battle management solutions for small units in order to increase the capability of the Jordan Armed Forces (JAF).

More specifically, Majali said this would incorporate battle management systems, information gathering toolsets and other C4ISR technology.

Majali also described the possibility of forming a partnership with industry in order to fully exploit the C4ISR market. In 2005, Northrop Grumman was awarded a $230m contract to work on JAF's C4I network at battalion levels and above.

Referring to Northrop Grumman and other companies, such as General Dynamics for example, Majali said: 'The door is open to work with these entities if they wish to come in and work with us. We have talked to many.'
