Abu Dhabi. - ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT) today signed an Executive Memorandum of Understanding with Emirates Advanced Investments (EAI) to formalize a partnership for exploration of business pursuits in the defense and security sectors of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Dave Melcher, president of ITT Defense Electronics and Services, signed the agreement with Hussain Ibrahim Al Hammadi, chairman and chief executive officer of Emirates Advanced Investments, during the IDEX 2009 exhibition in Abu Dhabi.

“This partnership reflects EAI’s commitment to helping protect defense and security personnel across the region,” said Al Hammadi, on the signing of the partnership. “Because of ITT’s leadership role and their state-of-the-art capabilities, we believe this agreement will be mutually beneficial for developing solutions to a wide variety of critical defense requirements in the UAE and possibly elsewhere.”
