Abu Dhabi The Nato Missile Firing Installation (Namfi) is offering its facility in Greece to the UAE and other Arab nations to test their weapon systems, Nato officials told Gulf News on the sidelines of the ongoing International Defence Exhibition and Conference (Idex-2011) here yesterday.
Somaras said upon acceptance that Namfi offers a 50 per cent discount to users the first time on the overall cost of testing.
"Since the end of the Cold War, around nine countries which aren't Nato members have conducted tests at Namfi.
"As well, several companies have used Namfi's range for target testing and testing weapons systems," Somaras added.
"Namfi offers high quality services in complete safety and in an economic way," said Commander Panos Kallergis.
Countries need a range to evaluate a weapons system, conduct training and firing in a controlled environment and Namfi provides all of that, he added.
"At Namfi, all types of missiles can be tested --surface to surface, surface to air and air to air," said Kallergis.
NAMFI graduates should be given the opportunity to become the understudies of the expatriates, and to take over from them when they are ready," said the information ministry.
The fishing industry claims that NAMFI graduates are not up to stretch.
