Defence needs more security as DSEi puts on a show

As the world’s largest display of land, sea and air defence technologies, Defence and Security Equipment International 2011 provides an opportunity for defence and security equipment manufacturers of all sizes to network and showcase their specialisations.

With over 1,390 exhibitors (560 of them small and medium-size businesses) from all over the world, the quality of the technology and sheer volume of innovative products is remarkable, particularly in a contracted global market for defence spending.
