Israel Unmanned Systems Trade Mission Currently Underway In Israel

Airlift, The U.S. Commercial Service and The U.S.-Israel Science Technology Foundation have jointly co-organized an international trade mission focused on Israel's unmanned systems industry.

TEL AVIV, Israel, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Airlift, The U.S. Commercial Service and The U.S.-Israel Science and Technology Foundation have jointly organized an international trade mission to bring business leaders and researchers to Israel to show the country's emerging leadership role in the unmanned systems (UAS) sector. The mission is taking place November 11-16, 2012 in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Jaffa.

UAS technology was originally developed for military applications but recently it has proven to be useful in oil and gas exploration, commercial aerial surveillance, and remote sensing. As a result, UAS technology has become an important area of research to many companies doing research and development in those spaces. And Israel's cutting edge work in the UAS sector makes it an ideal location for this particular trade mission.

The five day mission includes site visits to leading Israeli UAS companies including: Elbit Systems/Elop, G-NIUS, Urban Aeronautics, Gilat, Simlat, Steadicopter, Sky Sapience and Blue Bird. Participants will have the opportunity to meet with executive staff and leading researchers from those companies to discuss their current UAS programs and goals.

Trade mission participants include representatives of companies throughout Europe, Asia, South America and North America including six American companies. An international business forum scheduled during the trade mission will give these companies an opportunity to give a short presentation on their organization's technologies, products and services.

Co-organizers Ann Liebschutz, Marc-Philippe Rudel and Irit Van der Veur agree that the 2012 UAS Trade Mission is a great example of how business relationships and knowledge transfer can result in mutual economic benefits and increased innovation when companies and countries come together with similar technological interests.
