Israel Aerospace Industries has received a US$350 million Special Mission Aircraft-related contract from a major European country. The contract will be executed by IAI’s ELTA Systems, a global leader in the Special Mission Aircraft domain.

IAI has delivered Special Mission Aircraft to Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and numerous countries worldwide, and they are considered to be strategic assets. IAI is one of a selected few companies which have these technology capabilities in-house.

IAI achieved a major breakthrough in Special Mission Aircraft thanks to advanced sensor miniaturization technology coupled with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning software applications, allowing high-performance business jets to be used as Special Mission Aircraft. Previously, most of the Special Mission Aircraft in the world were based on converted cargo or passenger planes.
