Israel is a world leader in UAV production, with advanced space- launching capabilities. In addition, Israel maintains its classic advantages in fields such as relatively low-cost but high-quality manufacturing for Western countries, innovation and entrepreneurship that produce advanced technologies (UAV's automatic landing and takeoff), and operational experience with use of aerospace defense technologies and products.
Most Israeli companies are sub-suppliers that specialize in fields such as machining, electronic systems and components, and composite materials.
Israeli companies collaborate with leading international enterprises such as General Electric, General Dynamics, Embraer, EADS, Boeing, BAE Systems, Pratt & Whitney, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and others.
Although the majority of satellite, defense and electronics technology development is conducted by the large Israeli corporations, the UAV segment is promoted by smaller Israeli manufacturers that develop exclusive technology. The metal, composite and electronics segments are promoted by multiple companies that apply manufacturing technologies and develop additional products used by the aerospace industry
