Satellite and Space

​ Israel is known as a world leader in the satellite industry.

Ofeq satellites were the first mini- satellites to be developed in the 200-300 kg range, and Israel is one of the 12 countries in the world with independent launching capabilities.

The Israeli space industry has also significantly developed its installed equipment capabilities (e.g. cameras, radar, command and control systems, etc.), as well as developing satellites and launching systems.

The capabilities that Israel has developed make it a leader in nano-satellite technology, just as it was a leader in mini-satellite technology in the early years of the industry.

The Samson project, let by Israeli scientists, is the first attempt to launch to space a three Nano-Satellite structure that will orbit in formation in the world. Furthermore, Israel plans to launch to space 70 Nano-Satellites that will fly in formation to mark its 70th independence day in 2018. The satellites are being built by Israel's leading science high-sc​hools, universities and research institutes in collaboration with IAI, the Ministry Of Science, Technology and pace and the IDF.

The Israel Space Agency cooperates with many space organizations around the world, including its cooperation agreements with both NASA and ESA. Among the reasons the Israeli space and satellite industry is a global pioneer in small satellite technologies are the fact that it features high-quality human resources and highly effective work processes, the fact it is supported by Israeli cutting-edge academic activities, and that it constantly interacts with the renowned world-leading Israeli hi-tech sector.

Aerial Defense

Israel is a world leader in aerial defense technology and is known for its Arrow (developed by the IAI in conjunction with other international companies), Iron Dom​e (developed by Rafael in conjunction with Elta and MPrest Systems), and David’s Sling (developed by Rafael and Raytheon) missile systems.

These systems use cutting-edge technology to provide protection from multiple threats, ranging from surface missiles fired by low-flying helicopters to every type of ballistic threat; exo-atmospheric interception, long-range interception; and interception in large defense zones.

Leading Israeli companies: Rafael, IAI, Elbit, and IMI.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)

​​​ According to Frost & Sullivan, Israel is the largest UAV exporter in the world, with total revenue of approximately $4.62 billion between 2005 and 2012, an annual average of $578 million.

The Israeli UAV industry has many advantages, such as manufacturing high-quality products at low cost; the innovation and entrepreneurship that produce highly sophisticated technologies (such as the ability to land and takeoff automatically); and the fact that Israel is one of the only countries in the world with operational experience with various types of UAVs (assault, intelligence).

A great number of Israeli start-ups are trying to utilized the experience and information gained from the militarized application of UAV to new, groundbreaking civil-commercial applications. Airobotics, who developed fully automated industrial drones, is only one stellar example.

Leading Israeli Companies: IAI, Elbit, Aeronautics, Rafael, Urban Aeronautics, UVision Air, and BlueBird Aero Systems

Simulators

The increase in commercial air traffic and the decline in aerial hours incorporated into pilot training programs in recent years resulted in higher demand for training tools and simulators with advanced technological capabilities, and an emphasis on the ability to train multiple personnel simultaneously.

Elbit is one of the leading companies in the field in Israel. EHUD is a simulator that allows multiple users to train simultaneously, and has been selected by 18 leading air forces in different countries on four continents, including NATO members. In 2014, Elbit was awarded the Blue Ribbon for Innovation from Military Training Technology Magazine, along with corporations such as L-3 Communications and Lockheed Martin.

Leading Israeli companies: SimiGon (F-35), Hartech Technologies, and ISREX.

Metal Products

The Israeli metal industry consists of two primary sub-segments: basic metals and metal products. It employs approximately 60,000 people, and includes nearly 2,800 companies in different fields.

There are dozens of Israeli companies that provide metal products and services for the aerospace industry. The majority of these companies specialize in machining, precise metal products, aircraft assembly and aircraft structural components. Some of the companies specialize in composite materials.

Many companies manufacture products that are tailored specifically to their clients’ needs, using advanced manufacturing techniques and technologies. These companies supply products for other industries, such as vehicles, maritime and electronics, in addition to the aerospace industry.

Leading Israeli companies: Ashot Ashkelon, BSEL, H.R. Givon, Kanfit, Shimshon Fine Mechanics, Admar Metals, BAZ Airborne Components and Assemblies, Carme​l Forge, Migan, NIDCO and Orlite Industries.​
