Israel Aerospace Industries has been awarded a project to provide security for UN bases in Mali, Africa. The bases are used by UN forces in the framework of the MINUSMA (Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali) operation. The report comes from the Africa Intelligence website. IAI won the project via its subsidiary in Belgium called Belgian Advanced Technology Systems.
It is a five-year project whose goal is the defense of the perimeters of these bases. Israel's Elbit Systems and MER won similar projects in June, according to the report. The project includes threat detection and identification systems, CCTV cameras and drones. The companies will supply the products, training and maintenance.
