Israel’s Ministry of Defense is presenting a series of products and platforms at the annual Association of United States Army (AUSA) exhibition and conference in Washington D.C., being held from Oct. 11 to Oct. 13.

In a statement, the ministry announced that its International Defense Cooperation Directorate—known by its Hebrew acronym, SIBAT—“is resuming its participation in the prestigious AUSA defense exhibition following a two-year break taken as a result of the [coronavirus] pandemic. SIBAT will participate in two additional exhibitions this month in the Czech Republic and South Korea.”

SIBAT has inaugurated a national Israeli pavilion that will serve as a platform for 18 Israeli defense industries and startups.

Israel’s three largest defense companies—Rafael, Israel Aerospace Industries and Elbit Systems—will also participate in the exhibition.

The head of SIBAT, Brig. Gen. (Res.), Yair Kulas, said, “We are thrilled to resume our participation in defense exhibitions around the world, following the COVID pandemic. Both large Israeli industries and startups will exhibit their exceptional solutions and cutting-edge technologies.”

The Defense Ministry, he added, “is already working with the new U.S. administration to promote technological collaboration with American industries, and we intend to use this exhibition as an opportunity to further advance additional projects.”
