Northrop Grumman Corp hopes to expand its ties to the United Arab Emirates in coming years, including the potential sale of its E-2D airborne early warning radar planes, the company’s new chief executive for the UAE said on Saturday.

“There are incredible opportunities here,” Douglas Raaberg, a former senior U.S. Air Force official who joined Northrop in 2010, told Reuters in an interview after the Dubai International Air Chiefs conference. Raaberg was named last month as Northrop’s first chief executive officer for UAE.

Raaberg said foreign officials who spoke at the conference underscored growing international demand for unmanned vehicle technology, cybersecurity solutions, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance equipment, and logistics systems — all areas in which Northrop had a strong position.
