Waleed al-Mesmari, Vice President of Program Management, Electronic Warfare & Intelligence, EDGE, said the newly-announced security systems showcase the company’s capabilities and reflect its commitment to “locally develop technologies to guarantee the security of communities and personnel.”

According to WAM, ActiveCell helps determine locations via 2G, 3G and 4G network technologies while WiFinder is an “integrated product” which includes a variety of features that allow police and security services to “secretly monitor WI-FI networks.”

“WiFinder is thus an important tool in combating organized crime and terrorism,” WAM added.

AL JASOOR, another entity of EDGE that specializes in armored fighting vehicles, introduced the Rabdan ambulance, a new type of its Rabdan 8x8 infantry fighting vehicle.

This type of vehicles was designed to facilitate movement on rough terrains, resist mines and protect military doctors from ambushes while performing their duty in high-risk environments.

Dr. Jasem al-Zaabi, Acting CEO of AL JASOOR, said, the Rabdan ambulance, which can accommodate nine people, helps clients cut down on costs and meets the requirements of modern warfare.
