Fahad Kahoor, Thuraya’s Director of Market Development, said that OPV Middle East is among the company's most prominent yearly exhibitions as the firm is able to engage directly with senior naval officials and coast guards at this event. Thuraya has solid depth of experience in delivering solutions to the region’s maritime and defense sectors and is eager to showcase how the company's upgraded offerings meet the current requirements on patrol vessels for the surveillance and security of coastal borders and territorial waters.
