The MoU is expected to benefit the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the development of sovereign, secure and advanced communications. As a leader in airborne and ground communication for the battlespace, Collins Aerospace will collaborate with Taqnia Cyber in the field of C4I, next generation data links, and transmission security.
