Israel’s next generation of air defense technology remains a critical part of the battle to keep the Jewish state and its citizens safe.

At the Israeli Air Missile Defense Conference this week industry leaders and military stakeholders checked out some of the world’s latest air defense technology, some of which is responsible for protecting Israel’s skies from a wide range of threats.

The technology on display included multi-layer active defense systems that operate from very low altitudes to higher climbs, in addition to advanced drone systems and other unmanned aerial vehicles.

With the Iranian regime threatening the entire region with precision missiles and unbridled nuclear ambitions, technology such as this keeps Israel one step ahead of Tehran at all times.
