SIBAT – The International Defense Cooperation Directorate within Israel's Ministry of Defense (IMOD) and organizer of Israel’s National Pavilion – continues to strengthen cooperation between Israel’s defense industry and European countries. This aim is accomplished through collaboration and projects carried out via a number of communication channels, and include government contracts (G2G).
According to SIBAT’s Director, Brigadier General (Ret.) Yair Kulas, “The security challenges facing the European continent are growing, and so is the demand for technologically advanced defense systems. This year, the threat posed by drones to cities, airports and strategic facilities occupies a central place and is at the forefront of the global security conversation.
Israeli counter-drone defense systems, most of which have already gained operational experience in Israel and around the world, are generating interest in many countries. In addition, Israeli industries will present a very wide range of defense systems at the cutting edge of technology: unmanned land and maritime systems, border and facility protection, intelligence and surveillance systems, air defense, special forces solutions, and more.
“SIBAT works with our overseas partners facing global challenges, to adapt technological solutions from among the wide variety being offered by the Israeli defense industry, as needed. Israel is ready, and encourages cooperation, including technology transfer and local production.”
SIBAT, the International Defense Cooperation Directorate at Israel's Ministry of Defense (IMOD) is uniquely positioned within the ministry, while also having a close, ongoing relationship with the defense industry. This ensures SIBAT's ability to maintain in-depth, up-to-date knowledge of relevant concepts, as well as a clear understanding of the Israel Defense Forces' (IDF) operational needs.
SIBAT’s extensive global presence – backed by knowledgeable, well-trained representatives – enables effective cooperation and coordination between Israeli and foreign companies, and between Israel and governments around the world.
Among its most valued services is the initiation of collaborative ventures and long-term partnerships, the matching of needs with technologies, and the creation and support of Government-to-Government agreements. The Directorate identifies, initiates, develops, and supports business opportunities for Israel's hundreds of defense sector companies. SIBAT’s capabilities and experience ensure the effective implementation of Government-to-Government, Business-to-Government and Business-to-Business models.
SIBAT, a key intermediary between Israel's defense establishment and foreign security agencies, military forces, and global industries, is central to developing and maintaining these relationships.
