chris chadwickChris Chadwick, chief executive for the defense business of Boeing (NYSE: BA), forecasts that Asian-Pacific demand for patrol aircraft and related surveillance equipment will increase steadily in the foreseeable future, Bloomberg reported Sunday.

Kyunghee Park writes that Boeing and Saab AB predict that interest in surveillance technology among Asian customers will grow as tensions over territorial sovereignty in the region grow.

“Every country has the responsibility to look after their borders and territories, ” said Anders Dahl, Saab head of its Singaporean business, according to Bloomberg.

“If you look at the geography of the region, that is very complicated, ” Dahl added.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters at an event in Singapore over the weekend that the U.S. wants to keep the region’s sea lanes open for commerce.
