Exhibiting on a joint stand are ELI, Threod Systems, Defendec, Bristol Trust, Toci, Milectria Est, Milrem Robotics, TerraMil, Galvi-Linda, SOLEEST and the Estonian Defence Industry Association (EDIA).
“It is important to Enterprise Estonia to help Estonian businesses succeed on foreign markets, and setting up a state-sponsored joint stand at trade fairs provides a good opportunity for strengthening existing contacts, increasing trust and reaching potential new partners through presenting one’s innovative products,” said Tanel Rebane, director of trade development agency at Enterprise Estonia.
According to EDIA chairman Ingvar Pärnamäe, participation in defence industry fairs in conjunction with Enterprise Estonia is important because a joint stand creates a stronger and fuller image for the defence industry sector and companies thereof.
“We stand out better together, and the name of the state adds trustworthiness and gives it a seal of quality, which is of utmost importance in the defence industry,” he said.
The goal of the Estonian defence industry is to stand out in Europe with its smart and innovative products, services and solutions, Pärnamäe added.
Among the Estonian companies participating is Milrem Robotics, which is showcasing four different unmanned ground vehicles, one of which is equipped with a Threod Systems drone.
