An mou signed at the international exhibition for security and national resilience (isnr) in abu dhabi will form the basis of discussions regarding the creation of a single integrated abu dhabi-based defense services platform.

Benefits that could be realized from the creation of an integrated platform include economies of scale supply chain rationalisation and a single point of contact for customers.
