Eighteen Israeli defense companies will showcase products at the LAAD Defense and Security 2015 international exhibition in Rio de Janeiro this month, the Defense Ministry has announced.

According to SIBAT – the ministry’s international defense cooperation directorate – the size of the Israeli pavilion reflects the “importance of the Latin American market” to Israeli defense industries.

The exhibition will run from April 14 – 16, and, according to SIBAT Director Brig.-Gen. (res.) Mishel Ben-Baruch, it will be “a major event that brings together developers and exhibitors from around the world who are all focused on security and defense. We look forward to fruitful cooperation with Latin American countries in general, and Brazil, in particular, regarding the wide range of solutions being presented at the Israel pavilion.”

Ben-Baruch added that “SIBAT sees in this cooperation an important strategic opportunity that will contribute to strengthening the two nations, both economically and defense-wise.”

Ben-Baruch said “many of the products being offered by Israeli companies at LAAD are combat- proven.”

SIBAT said that Israeli technologies to go on display will include: “ImageSat’s portable mini-terminal for real-time, ultra-fast data downloading from earth observation satellites; Israel Weapons Industries’ revolutionary solution for digitizing the performance of small arms; Merkavim’s armored bus – the most protected in the world; VisionMap’s airborne imaging system with 3D capabilities; Mistral’s advanced divers sonar systems and Controp’s comprehensive airborne surveillance mission system for helicopters.”

SIBAT is a directorate within the Defense Ministry that works with Israeli defense companies and takes part in drawing up export policies.

It is responsible for coordinating all of Israel’s defense export-related activities.
