Israel shows future multilayer missile and air defense system at Paris Air Show 2011.
 
 
Air and missile defense systems are at the center stage of Israel’s aerospace and defense display at the 49th Paris Air Show. Following the operational success of the Iron Dome counter-rocket system, emphasis is given to active defense missile and air defense capabilities. On display are a new, mobile version of Iron Dome, and the Stunner interceptor, under development for David's Sling - Israel's next generation air and missile defense system.
     
     

"Despite the slowdown of the global economy, in 2010 Israel's defense export growth continued, as the industries demonstrated stability, growth and substantial contribution to the national economy, proving once again that our investment in defense provides substantial value for the nation's economy" said Maj. General (ret.) Udi Shani, Director General of the Ministry of Defense (MOD). "The display of Iron Dome, David's Sling and Arrow, following the successful operational debut of Iron Dome, provides a substantial opportunity for such systems becoming a growth engine for Israel's defense export" Shani added.

According to annual records published by the MOD, the country’s defense exports in 2010 grew to $7.2 billion, up from $6.9 billion in 2009. The total orders backlog reported by the leading industries has also increased in the past year, from $17.3 billion to $18.8 billion.

According to Avi Hefetz, General Manager Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute (IEICI) Israel’s Aerospace and Defense (A&D) industries sold about one billion US$ in commercial and civil export, representing about 14 percent of the total annual aerospace and defense export. IEICI aims to more than double the share of the civil aviation segment in Israel’s A&D export, by increasing the number of exporters. This segment is expected to reach 30 percent over the next three years. Hefetz acknowledged that the total volume of civil aerospace export is increasing year over year, as defense industries expand their portfolio adding commercial and civil aviation offerings.

The Paris Air Show provides the primary showcase for the world's leading aerospace companies, manufacturers, subcontractors and service providers. As such, it also offers Israel's aerospace and defense industries a lucrative venue for business development. This week fifteen of Israel’s leading Aerospace & Defense industries are once again present at the Paris Air Show. This year marks Israel’s 25th appearance at the world’s premier aerospace event, opening in Paris Le Bourget on June 20th. Organized by IEICI in cooperation with the Ministry of Defense, the Israel Pavilion is located at a special building alongside the outdoor static display and in an additional, new location in Hall 3.

IEICI Debut a New Pavilion at an Investment of $1.75

"IEICI has invested over $1.75 million setting up the new national pavilion, highlighting the leadership position of our industries. With exhibits spanning over 4,000 square meters, being among the five largest national exhibits at the show, following France, USA, Italy and the UK” Hefetz said. Among the participating companies this year are Aero Maoz, Aeronautics, Amit Industries, BlueBird Aerosystems, Controp Precision Technologies, Elbit Systems, IAI, Kanfit, MTC, Pentagon 2000, Plasan, Rafael, Shimshon Fine Mechanics, Urban Aeronautics and Y. Shuster.

The impressive displays are highlighting advanced areas including unmanned systems, avionics, electro-optical systems and more. According to SIBAT, the MOD Defense Export Branch, Israel has a world leadership position in the field of unmanned systems, where Israeli industries have accumulated extensive operational experience. Extensive operational experience coupled with the innovation in bringing new products to market place Israel in a leading position in this rapidly growing market, offering advanced, next- generation capabilities addressing evolving needs.

At the Air Show, Israel also exhibits state-of-the-art electronics, avionics and electro-optics. Modern cockpit technologies are highlighted by presentations of new architecture, systems and simulation techniques, enabling designers to tailor operating and training systems to match the latest environment which modern fighter pilots are required to master.
Inroads to the World’s Civil Aviation Market

The Paris Air Show offers unique opportunities for smaller subcontractors to introduce unique capabilities and expertise, in front of a large buying force of prime contractors and their Tier I and II suppliers. In the field of aerospace subcontracting, the Israel Pavilion accommodates a number of companies producing metallic and composite aerostructures, fine mechanics, hydraulic connectors and tubing, and Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) for military and commercial operators.

According to Avi Hefetz, IEICI has made significant effort in paving marketing channels to leading prime contractors, opening new opportunities for Israeli Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) offering subcontracting for aerostructures, engine components and subsystems, electronics, avionics and cockpit subsystems. These activities have already initiated inroads to major contractors such as EADS, Finmeccanica, Boeing, Saab, Lufthansa Technik and others.

Israel’s aerospace sector counts about 150 companies active in civil and military aviation and space, exporting their products throughout the world. 44,000 people are currently employed by Israeli aerospace and defense companies.
