Raytheon Company is teaming with the Centre of Excellence for Applied Research and Training (CERT) to sponsor the 2010 Technology Forum in support of math and science education. Scheduled for November 3 on the Higher Colleges of Technology campus in Abu Dhabi, the forum will bring together current and future military leaders, students, and industry.

"Partnering with the CERT, we will provide a forum that enables students and others to better understand how technology and innovation are driving technologies that will be critical to the region in the future."

The 2010 Technology Forum will feature briefings on the current and emerging technologies behind directed energy and lasers, infrared and other sensors, intelligence and information systems, air and missile defense, and more. Attendees will also have the opportunity to experience interactive demonstrations, and view cutting-edge displays.
