"It is exciting to see UAE-based companies like Halcon driving the country towards a smart industrial sector powered by advanced technologies," Al Amiri said.

"The integration of the Fourth Industrial Revolution solutions into our value and supply chains is critical to fostering a knowledge- and innovation-based economy, which will shape the next 50 years of the Emirates as we continue to cultivate a culture of innovation."

She added: "We recently announced the Fourth Industrial Revolution Programme, Industry 4.0, which aims to increase industrial production by 30 per cent, and industrial contribution to the local economy by Dh25 billion, by 2031. These objectives are only achievable through joint efforts between MoIAT and its partners in the public and private sectors."

Al Amiri said Halcon’s efforts help elevate the cutting-edge capabilities of the UAE’s defence industry.

Halcon is a leading precision guided system and munitions manufacturer utilising cutting-edge digital transformation tools to streamline its business processes and gain complete visibility and transparency across its operations. Halcon’s digital platform provides real-time decision-making from the back office to the shop floor, making the company’s manufacturing facilities among the most advanced in the country, in line with the objectives of Operation 300bn.
