Vlatacom Institute will exhibit at IDEX 2021 ,the International Defence Exhibition and Conference in Abu Dhabi, UAE from 21st to 25th of February.


Vlatacom will present its Over The Horizon Radar (OTHR), long range HF radar system that detects vessels far beyond the horizon, up to 200Nnm (370km) away from the coast line.


Our OTHR radar detects illegal activities on the sea:

  • illegal transport of goods, drugs, weapons, people,


  • illegal and Unregulated and Unreported (IUU) Fishing,


  • stealing of oil from tankers,


  • piracy


With its long range, the OTHR radar is a valuable addition to existing electro-optical surveillance systems that have a short range of only 25km and to existing coastal radars that can detect vessels up to 100km away from coast line.


Utilization of the OTHR significantly reduces the need for patrolling using OPV patrol vessels and for patrolling using aircrafts, either manned or UAV. These resources can be utilized to respond to the threats that the OTHR identifies, thus considerably reducing wasted resources such as fuel.


Please find us at the exhibition area of the leading supplier to UAE MoD, MoI and other defense and security authorities, the esteemed company, International Golden Group (IGG) from ther United Arab Emirates (


Location of the stand is: UAE Pavilion, Stand Number: 04-C40, 04-C20
