About Us

Israel is known around the world for its pioneering, operationally-proven defense systems - which are developed by its defense industries, and implemented all around the globe. These innovative systems are developed in order to provide effective and advanced capabilities to meet all threats.

SIBAT, the International Defense Cooperation Directorate of the Israel Ministry of Defense (IMOD), is uniquely positioned within the IMOD, while having a close, ongoing relationship with Israel's defense industry. This combination ensures that SIBAT maintains in-depth and up-to-date knowledge of the defense world’s relevant concepts, as well as a clear understanding of the Israel Defense Forces' (IDF) operational needs.

SIBAT facilitates international cooperation through its various services:

  • Generating Government–to-Government agreements
  • Initiating visits of official foreign delegations
  • Identifying cooperation opportunities with the Israeli defense industry
  • Locating relevant technological solutions for specific requirements
  • Establishing joint ventures
  • Managing the marketing and sales of IDF inventory
  • Providing in-depth information on Israel’s defense industry through a biennial directory and by organizing the Israel national pavilions at international defense exhibitions
