Throughout the Arabian Gulf region, aircraft systems like the SeaGuardian are attracting “great amounts of attention,” according to Alexander. The versatility of the MQ-9B is another thing that makes it so ideal for Arabian Gulf or other regional users. This is due to both its features and capabilities as well as the maturity of the systems involved, and the speed with which everything can be brought into operation as compared with a new aircraft. When he speaks, Alexander marks off examples on his fingers.All of this helps to increase regional interest in the MQ-9B at events like IDEX in Abu Dhabi.
