At Paris Military Expo, Israel Brings Solutions for Assymetrical Warfare
At the Eurosatory 2014 military expo in Paris, 30 Israeli defense companies, a record for Israel’s National Pavilion, are presenting advanced solutions for symmetric warfare in urban areas, in response to the critical needs and developing trends among today’s armed forces.
The pavilion was organized by SIBAT, the International Defense Cooperation Division of the Israel Ministry of Defense, and is located in Hall 6, Stand E571.
In a statement, Director of SIBAT Brig. Gen. (IAF, Res.) Shmaya Avieli said: “Today’s terror threats have created the vital need for solutions to counter asymmetric warfare, in urban areas and elsewhere, with existing technologies.”
He said the Israeli defense industry will be demonstrating “a wide range of cost-effective, lightweight, portable, and easy-to-operate solutions that meet the need to combat territorial incursions and secure borders.”
“Solutions range from robotics to unmanned air and ground platforms, detection systems, and advanced tracking – which enable significant savings on operational costs and personnel for additional systems – as well as protective solutions to safeguard forces in the field,” Avieli said.
Israel also has a proven capability for active defense – including the Arrow system, the Trophy, the Iron Dome, and other cutting-edge systems, the general added.
Eurosatory 2014 is being held from June 16 to 20.
