Key Highlights
The United Arab Emirates is located on the south side of the Strait of Hormuz, through which 40% of the worlds oil is exported and which also shares its border with Iran. Territorial disputes with Iran, combined with its recent advancements in ballistic missile technology, have driven the UAE to focus on the development of its own aircraft and missile systems, which accounted for 96% of the total defense procurements made during 2004-09. Indeed, the countrys lack of indigenous defense capabilities and trained manpower has led the UAE to seek high technology, top quality defense systems from foreign OEMs, in order to provide effective protection to all of its strategic assets and critical infrastructure.
