Survey: Israel is the world's top drones exporter

According to research, Israel is the main global exporter of unmanned aircraft. Over the past eight years, the country has sold $ 4.6 billion, providing drones to a number of countries from England to India.


Sales of unmanned aerial vehicles account for 10% of the total sales of military equipment of Israel. In 2008, the country earned $ 150 million on drone sales, this figure increased significantly in 2009, to $ 650 million, and sales reached a record level in 2010, $ 979 million.

In subsequent years, their level fell slightly, and by the year 2012 Israel received about $ 260 million, which, however, can not be called a small amount. It should be noted that the latter figure does not include a major deal with India on the modernization of UAVs - if you take into account this deal, the above-mentioned figure will increase by $ 100 million.

More than half of the total number of drones exported from 2005 of the year to 2012 of the year were sold to Europe, in particular, to the UK, Germany, Poland, the Netherlands and Spain.

One-third of exports from 2005 to 2012 were sold to countries such as Azerbaijan and India. About 11% of overseas sales, totaling $ 508 million, sent to customers from South America. The US needed the entire 3.9% of Israeli drones for the aforementioned period. African countries also received 1.5% of total exports, paying $ 69 million.

Most of the exported aircraft were intended for military use. Only a few of them were acquired in order to control and maintain security in cities.

It is expected that Israel’s profits from the sale of drones will grow in the coming years, as Israeli firms continue to sign all new contracts with foreign customers.

        Actually, according to SIPRI, Israel is in 11th place, and Russia is in second place, immediately after the United States.

        you want to say that the Russian 2nd place in the export of arms is so much less than the 5th place of the Jewish?!, and it can be argued that we have no weapons ?! you just don’t tear your hair, but we have weapons so that to protect our women, to protect our "brains", to protect our hardworking people, to protect our natural resources, and you are a provocateur like most people with little "dignity".

      OJSC "OPK" Oboronprom "in its press release dated January 9, 2013 informs about successful tests of the first unmanned aerial vehicles" Forpost "assembled at OJSC" Ural Plant of Civil Aviation "(UZGA, part of the OPK" Oboronprom ") in Yekaterinburg and "Zastava", which are, respectively, the Israeli Searcher Mk II and Bird Eye 400 vehicles designed and manufactured by Israel Aerospaces Industries (IAI) corporation.

      The press release says that "tests of UAVs" Forpost "and" Zastava "have been conducted at the Salka flight base near Yekaterinburg since the beginning of December 2012. Despite extreme weather conditions (on some days the temperature at the base dropped to -30˚ C, and under conditions of real flights at altitudes of 2 thousand meters it reached -50 системыC), the UAV systems operate normally and work without failures.

      The difference between the Iron Dome and the Patriot is roughly the same as that between the Shell and the S-300. They are designed for different tasks.

Therefore, a senior complex "David's Sling" is being created for missiles with a large radius. And henceforth it is better to reduce the aplomb.

                  TTX Tamirs (LCD missile) are known. The protected perimeter is 12 * 12 km or about 150 km * 2. And the flight range is appropriate (+/- with intensive maneuvering).

                  - exactly. And this is due to the characteristics of the LCD radar, which I suspect is made on the basis of an artillery radar and does not see BR launched from a greater distance. Although not everything is clear to me in this matter, since all the air defense systems including Hets, Patriot and everything else the Israelis have tied into one information system for a long time. But the direct target designation of the missile is transmitted by the LCD radar, so the Tamirs cannot yet intercept missiles traveling along a higher trajectory. However, if you blurted out by simply reflecting on the word Israel, then I apologize. Then, keep spraying. Reality and combat application of the system to such a reflection have nothing to do. LCD in a real combat situation proved to be better than the developers themselves expected. Nice typewriter.

                    to any specialist, this phrase will say absolutely nothing about the technical characteristics of the complex

                    this is due to the characteristics of the LCD radar, which I suspect is based on an artillery radar and does not see BR launched from a greater distance.

                    you'd better not say that
                    the radar sees the targets not because they are called BR or depending on the range of their launch, the detection range primarily depends on the ESR of the target, then the overview of any ground-based radar is limited to the radio horizon (~ 40 km) so the LCD absolutely does not matter at what distance the target will be launched from 10km, 70km or 200km, if at the entrance to the affected area the target will have acceptable characteristics, then the missile system will

                    and all this verbiage about BR with a launch range of up to 70km gives a poor idea of ​​the capabilities of the complex
