AERO INDIA 2017: “Make in India” at the Israel Pavilion
SIBAT – the International Defense Cooperation Directorate within Israel’s Ministry of Defense – is the organizer of the Israel National Pavilion at Aero India 2017, where a wide variety of advanced, locally-developed defense technologies will be presented. Eleven companies will exhibit their cutting-edge solutions in the fields of cyber, avionics, EW, unmanned systems, missiles, and more.
According to SIBAT’s Director, Brig. Gen. (Ret.) Mishel Ben Baruch, “In recent years, we have witnessed the strengthening of the cooperation between India and Israel in many fields, the most prominent of which being defense technology. Israeli companies are increasingly utilizing the unique manufacturing and development capabilities that exist in India, establishing local entities, and collaborating with local companies, in order to comply with ‘Make in India’ requirements.
“Interest in Cyber defense, in particular, is on the rise in India and the region as a whole. Israeli companies have developed innovative solutions in this field and are already exporting them to countries in the region. We at SIBAT are working to connect the needs of the countries in the region, cyber or otherwise, with Israeli technologies, for mutual benefit.”
At the Israel Pavilion at Aero India, an exceptional array of technologies will be displayed, from space technologies to on-the-ground tools, and from the largest platforms to miniature unmanned systems. Also present will be intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems which, coupled with advanced avionics, sophisticated missiles, air defense systems, and survivability solutions provide a sharpened, more complete picture of the field.
