According to the Director of SIBAT, Brig. Gen. (Ret.)

The Israeli defense industry provides a broad spectrum of advanced technological solutions, from sophisticated components to systems of systems, to deal with these threats.
“At the same time, we see ongoing intensification of competition in the international market, which increases the need to expand industrial cooperation between Israeli and foreign companies. We, at SIBAT, initiate and develop international agreements and cooperation between the industries and with governments, leveraging the security ties and relationships with governments and security organizations around the world.
“In addition, in response to the global trend towards knowledge transfer and local production, the Israeli defense industries are implementing cooperation agreements with local industries worldwide.”
