Global Security Asia 2007

National pavilions representing the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States and Singapore will be out in full force at Global Security Asia 2007 (GSA2007) to address the global issue of homeland security. Others are being finalised ahead of the event. GSA 2007, the second in the series, will be held in Singapore from 27 to 29 March 2007. This year's event will again be held at Singapore Expo. The GSA 2007 exhibition is hosted and fully supported by Singapore's Ministry of Home Affairs. The Guest-of-Honour will be Professor S. Jayakumar, Deputy Prime Minister, Coordinating Minister for National Security and Minister for Law. He will officially open the GSA Exhibition and Conference.

The United Kingdom Pavilion is fully supported by the country's Defence Manufacturers' Association, the Australian Pavilion by the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) and the Singapore Pavilion, by International Enterprise Singapore (IE Singapore). Also coming in strongly is the USA pavilion, which has increased in size by 25% from the inaugural show.

Since the inaugural GSA 2005, seemingly random, but yet coordinated, acts of terrorism have occurred globally, showing that the terrorist problem has far from abated and continues to grab international attention. GSA 2007 will throw the focus on terrorism and shed new light on the subject. It is also a platform for an exchange of ideas on countering terrorism and enhancing security measures.

The event offers an unparalleled opportunity for companies and research institutions to showcase the latest equipment and systems developed to meet the needs of counter terrorism, special forces and government security agencies worldwide. These will include the latest technologies in the areas of security screening, biometrics, internet and computer security, intelligence and anti-terrorism training methods, CBRN threats, surveillance, security risk management and land, air and sea security.

Exhibitors include prominent names such as Altrus, Blaz Protection Systems, Cambridge Consultants, EADS (the consortium that owns Airbus), Elsag, IPS Marketing Resources, Motorola, NEC, Rapiscan Asia, Selex, Siemens AG Voice & Data Recording, ST Engineering, Tenix Defence, Thales, The Forensic Science Service, Raytheon Company and TJ Systems.
