IS­RAEL AEROSPACE IN­DUS­TRIES (IAI) will present a wide range of strate­gic sys­tems, in­clud­ing spe­cial mis­sion air­craft such as AEW&C (ELM-2090) and exclusive eco­nomic zone (EEZ) mar­itime de­fense so­lu­tions in­clud­ing the Heron MALE un­manned aerial sys­tem (UAS) at DE­FEXPO In­dia 2016, in Goa, In­dia.

IAI will fea­ture air and mis­sile de­fense and loi­ter­ing weapon sys­tems such as the MRSAM/LRSAM Barak 8 air & mis­sile de­fense sys­tem and the Green Dragon – a tac­ti­cal, low­cost loi­ter­ing weapon de­signed to pro­vide small ground and spe­cial op­er­a­tions units with sig­nif­i­cant sit­u­a­tional aware­ness and fire­power in a com­pact en­ve­lope. Radar and com­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tems will in­clude the Drone Guard (ELI-4030)- for drone de­tec­tion, iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and flight dis­rup­tion; the Green Rock (ELM 2138) – a mo­bile au­ton­o­mous tac­ti­cal counter rocket, ar­tillery & mor­tar sys­tem; and CIMS (Counter IED and Mine Suite) – an in­te­grated suite of sen­sors, for pro­tec­tion of tac­ti­cal ma­neu­ver­ing ve­hi­cles.

IAI has a 25+ year his­tory of demon­strated strate­gic co­op­er­a­tion with In­dia’s de­fense forces and in­dus­try. The com­pany col­lab­o­rates with many In­dian com­pa­nies (both pub­lic and pri­vate) and works closely with all branches of the In­dian Armed Forces to sup­port the gov­ern­ments’ ‘Make in In­dia’ pol­icy.

“In­dia’s main goal has al­ways been to ac­quire cut­tingedge tech­nolo­gies, and has be­come a prom­i­nent mar­ket for Is­raeli de­fense com­pa­nies”, said Joseph Weiss, IAI’s CEO and Pres­i­dent. “In­dia has unique op­er­a­tional needs and IAI is com­mit­ted to de­vot­ing our best minds and tech­nolo­gies to achieve the chal­lenges set by the cus­tomer and con­tinue our long-term strate­gic co­op­er­a­tion with In­dia for a brighter and safer fu­ture.”

IAI has been in­volved in many devel­op­ment pro­grams for In­dia’s Navy and Air Force, in co­op­er­a­tion with the In­dian De­fense Re­search & Devel­op­ment Or­gan­i­sa­tion (DRDO) and In­dian de­fense in­dus­tries, such as the joint devel­op­ment of long-range sur­face-to-air mis­siles with Bharat Elec­tron- ics Lim­ited In­dia (BEL). These projects in­clude joint pro­duc­tion of sub­sys­tems, such as a re­cent team­ing agree­ment with Al­pha De­sign to pro­duce IAI’s mini-UAVs in In­dia. This team­ing agree­ment will bet­ter po­si­tion IAI’s mini-UAVs to po­ten­tial cus­tomers in In­dia, in­clud­ing se­cu­rity agen­cies, coast­guards, de­fense or­ga­ni­za­tions and bor­der se­cu­rity forces. On­go­ing projects with In­dia in­clude the Barak 8, co-de­vel­oped with In­dia as part of the LRSAM naval air de­fense; MRSAM land-based air de­fense sys­tems; var­i­ous types of radars; and large num­bers of Heron UAS.

IAI Ltd. is Is­rael’s largest aerospace and de­fense com­pany and a glob­ally rec­og­nized tech­nol­ogy and in­no­va­tion leader, spe­cial­iz­ing in de­vel­op­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing ad­vanced, state-of-the-art sys­tems for air, space, sea, land, cy­ber and home­land se­cu­rity. Since 1953, the com­pany has pro­vided ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy so­lu­tions to gov­ern­ment and com­mer­cial cus­tomers world­wide in­clud­ing: satel­lites, mis­siles, weapon sys­tems and mu­ni­tions, un­manned and ro­botic sys­tems, radars, C4ISR and more. IAI also de­signs and man­u­fac­tures busi­ness jets and aerostruc­tures, per­forms over­haul and main­te­nance on com­mer­cial air­craft and con­verts pas­sen­ger air­craft to re­fu­el­ing and cargo con­fig­u­ra­tions.
