FORT MONMOUTH, N.J. - Officials of the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) are scheduling an international trade fair at Fort Monmouth, N.J., Oct. 26 and 27.

The event, which CECOM officials are staging in partnership with the National Defense Industrial Association in Arlington, Va., is to stimulate sales of U.S. command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, electronic warfare, and sensor equipment to foreign customers.

The U.S. exhibitors are mostly producers of tactical communications equipment, CECOM officials say. Military personnel from about 80 countries are invited.

What the trade fair organizers are looking for is "equipment that has potential for foreign military sales or has a history of foreign military sales," says Eugene Bennett, director of CECOM`s Security Assistance Management Directorate. Booth space costs $2,500 for as much as 1,500 square feet.
