Israel to Display Innovative Aero-Space, Defence and Security Technologies at Aero-India 2013
New Delhi, 4 January, 2013: Israel's National Pavilion at Aero-India 2013 in Bangaluru will display an exciting array of some of Israel's most innovative defence companies. The Pavilion, one of the largest in Aero-India 2013, is hosted by SIBAT, Israel's Defence Cooperation Authority, a branch of the Ministry of Defence.
Representing one of the world's most advanced air powers, the State of Israel entrusts much of its security to its indigenously grown and developed aerospace and defence systems. The unique advantages of Israel's aerospace and defence industries are based on rapid development cycles, implementing innovative and practical solutions. These innovations are marked by cutting edge technologies, ongoing investments in research and development and the unique talents of a skilled workforce, the majority having gained combat experience during their military service.
Exceptional systems developed by Israel's aerospace and defence industries, including the airborne early warning radar, currently being installed on Israel Air Force special mission jets, Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) Unmanned aerial systems, pursuing persistent surveillance over a wide area, and advanced air defence missile systems, are only few of the strategic systems developed for Israel's Defence Forces, which are currently released for export.
Further developments include tactical systems such as the most advanced precision guided weapons and missiles, avionics equipment, state-of-the-art command, control, communications, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance equipment, and highly sophisticated protection systems, ranging from active electronic countermeasures, electronic warfare systems, decoys and passive armor system.
Among the systems which will be on display in Bangaluru are some that have been used successfully under highly challenging combat operations, proving the effectiveness and reliability of Israel's defence systems. One of the highlights that will be displayed for the first time in India, is the 'Iron Dome' system, the indigenously developed, game-changing – first of its type – missile interception system. The 'Iron Dome' recently performed with notable distinction protecting over half of Israel's population from a barrage of over 1500 rockets and missiles.
The Director General of Israel's Ministry of Defence, Maj. Gen. (Res.) Udi Shani, who will lead the Israeli delegation at Aero-India 2013, noted: "In our region, necessity has been the mother of creativity and Israel's defence industries are the living embodiment of this statement. With hard work, years of intense investment in R&D and creativity which stems from our unique situation here; our defence industries lead the way in an array of fields. We look forward to sharing these resourceful ideas and innovative systems with our Indian friends once again in Bangaluru".
The Ambassador of Israel, H.E. Mr. Alon Ushpiz, stated: "Israel and India share a wide array of security challenges. The cooperation in these fields between Israel and India has been an integral part of our ever-growing multifaceted relationship. The Israeli defence industries participating in Aero-India 2013 are no-doubt the best in the world, and we are extremely proud to showcase them in Bangaluru".
