Defence companies exhibit at IMDEX maritime defence show, Singapore E-mail

Eight Israeli defence companies showcased their products at IMDEX Asia 2017, “Asia Pacific’s Flagship Maritime Defence Show”, in Singapore, from 16 to 18 May. Their potential clients were the navies of Asian countries seeking to protect and defend their seas and shores from attack.

The Israeli companies included Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd., Elbit Systems Ltd., Israel Military Industries Ltd. (IMI Systems) and Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. (IAI).

“The challenges Israel faces in the marine theatre are similar to those faced by Asian countries. The threats are of marine terrorism, which makes it more necessary to procure detection and intelligence systems, special cyber systems and other tools,” said Ministry of Defense International Defense Cooperation Authority (SIBAT) principal deputy director Paul Friedberg.

The Ministry of Defense believes that the systems developed in Israel to protect the natural gas platforms in the Mediterranean Sea will meet the security needs of countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and others.
