The Multifaceted mission support specialists, Theyab International Group Defense & Security (TIG-DS), has expanded its growing portfolio of services through a joint venture agreement with the Dubai- based risk management technologists, Red Solutions.
The Abu Dhabi company announced earlier this month, it had signed a joint venture agreement under the brand ‘TIG- RED’ to provide a range of technical and professional engineering services including hardware and software development, systems design and systems integration focusing on the defense and security markets.
“The joint venture Agreement will leverage Red Solutions’ existing infrastructure and past experience in delivering physical and electronic security as a platform, upon which a number of specific product and service offerings will be built,” said Khaled Al Alawi, TIG-DS Vice Chairman.
“These will include conventional physical and security solutions for strategically important clients, RF spectrum management solutions, integrated mobile and transportable systems, and remotely managed services for security and defense assets.

“We will endeavor to create new propositions, and assist in the identification and development of technical opportunities through partnerships and acquisitions where appropriate,” said TIG’s vice chairman Khalid Al Alawi. “At the heart of our offering will be systems that have been designed and integrated in the UAE for worldwide deployment.”
