S-92 VIP Transport(click to view larger) Israeli firms have recently won a few foreign defense and security contracts around the world. Elbit’s Elisra Group will supply $7 million worth of electronic warfare (EW) systems to the air forces of Portugal and the Republic of Korea. The company will supply EW systems for ROK Air Force Sikorsky S-92 Superhawk helicopters, and radar warning receivers (RWR) for 12 Portuguese Air Force C-295 transport planes which will form part of their integrated protection suites. Three of the planes will reportedly be equipped with the full self-defense suites, while the other planes will have the infrastructure installed so that the systems can be installed later. Meanwhile, Beit Alpha Technologies of Kibbutz Beit Alpha recently signed a collaboration with a Chinese firm to jointly develop and market vehicles for riot control and dispersal. The vehicles are slated for use during the 2008 Beijing Olympics. See Ha’aretz story.
