From September 12th to 15th, BELSS took part in the most significant defense and security industry exhibition, known as ‘Defence and Security Equipment International’ (DSEI) 2023. On September 13th, the Latvian pavilion was unveiled at the exhibition. Latvia was represented by dual-use product manufacturers from the sectors of telecommunications, optics, munitions, food, and engineering services, including BELSS.

At the exhibition, BELSS showcased unmanned aerial vehicles (drones), mobile camp solutions, the DNVS (Driver Night Vision Systems) solution for vehicles and other various military equipment, and other military systems integration solutions.

This year, DSEI experienced its most significant and largest iteration in its 24-year history. Focusing on the theme of “Achieving Integrated Power,” it emphasized the importance of integration in six operational domains: air, cyber, electromagnetic operations (CEMA), land, maritime, and space operations.

DSEI, with the participation of more than 2800 defense and security suppliers, including major manufacturers, as well as over 230 new exhibitors, was the premier event of its kind. It played a pivotal role in bringing together governments, armed forces, and the broader defense industry.

BELSS was represented by a team of seven individuals who met with existing collaboration partners, strengthened relationships, and also met and established potential collaborations to offer new and innovative solutions to Latvia’s security and defense industry in various domains.

The BELSS team had meetings with the Latvian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Ivita Burmistre, the State Secretary of the Ministry of Defense, Jānis Garisons, representatives from the Swedish Navy, and Silvus Technologies, a U.S. company known for producing the most powerful portable tactical MIMO radio stations. BELSS is now the distributor of these radio stations in Latvia.

We would like to express our gratitude to the BELSS team, the Latvian Defense and Security Industry Federation (DAIF), and the Latvian Ministry of Defense for their support during this event.

See you in London at DSEI 2025!
