Romania buys rights from Israel to produce Iron Dome missile defenseMay 24, 2018
World Israel News:
In a deal worth hundreds of millions of dollars, Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defense Systems will provide the Romanian Romaero company with licensing and training to produce its own air-defense systems.
Israel’s famous Iron Dome anti-rocket system, in addition to the “Samson” remote-controlled weapons positions, and the “Gil” or “Spike” anti-tank tactical missiles, will be part of the deal to enable Romaero to manufacture defense systems in Romania.
This is Rafael’s first local production agreement with Romania, and part of a new Romanian initiative to create jobs by bringing industries home.
Rafael CEO, Maj. Gen. (ret.) Yoav Har-Even lauded the agreement, which he said “is an essential aspect of our corporate policy and strategy—a dedication to strong, win-win partnerships and long-term collaboration to establish technological advancement, local production and capabilities.”
