Mitesh Purohit, said: “We look forward to strengthening our relationship with JODDB in the areas of autonomous technologies and platforms.

"Incorporating USVs into operations can significantly improve detection rates of illegal activities, reduce response times and enhance overall surveillance capabilities.”

Ongoing conflicts and threats in parts of the world has influenced the demand for USVs with the global market for unmanned surface vessels (USVs) witnessing substantial growth, driven by technological advancements and diverse applications. The market is expected to grow from US$2.13 billion in 2023 to US$2.89 billion by 2030, representing a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period.

Eng. Rateb A. Abu Al Ragheb, Head of Sales & Business Strategy Department, at JODDB, said: “On the basis of JODDB’s role to be part of developing the capabilities of the Jordanian defence industry and satisfy the requirements of the Jordan Armed Forces with cutting-edge autonomous capabilities and continuous research of best solutions in the defence industry, we welcome this important partnership with Milanion to deepen our cooperation in further developing our capabilities.

"This agreement signifies a considerable step forward between both organisations, in enhancing cooperation for defence industry projects in Jordan.”
