Lt. Col Alzubaidi Zaid will discuss the Jordanian Army’s procurement process as the nation upgrades its artillery systems in a way not seen for decades. Jordan, which accounts for a substantial part of the Middle Eastern artillery market, is currently looking to work with precision munition, tracked system and C4I professionals to acquire a range of new equipment including:
•Target Acquisition Radar
•Multi Function Binoculars for Surveillance and Fire Control
•New 155 mm Tracked Howitzers (Not Upgraded)
•Upgraded 105 mm Howitzers
In order to outline the most urgent procurement needs of the Armed Forces and to assess the proliferation of indirect and asymmetric threats, Lt. Col Alzubaidi Zaid will be accompanied by fellow international experts such as:
•Colonel Mohammad Al Momani, Commander of Jordanian Artillery School, Royal Jordanian Army
•Brigadier General Jonathan A. Maddux, Programme Executive Officer, PEO Ammunition, US Army
