At the 50th Paris Air Show, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is presenting its newly offered “Total Solutions” concept, demonstrated in an all-inclusive video presentation.

These “Total Solutions” are based on IAI’s world leading ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) systems, advanced command and control systems with sophisticated networks, and integrated active defense missiles and precision strike weapon systems.

Joseph Weiss, IAI’s president & CEO said: “to confront today’s threats, a comprehensive solution is needed, combining platforms, sensors, weapons and command & control systems. Our “Total Solutions” concept enables our customers to know everything that happens immediately and precisely so they can make the right decisions and act effectively.”

For the first time in Paris, IAI is also displaying the Taxibot, an advanced robotic system that will revolutionize airport ground operations. TaxiBot is a pilot-controlled vehicle, designed to transport airplanes from the airport gate to the runway.

Additionally, IAI will unveil its new generation of compact 3D High Frequency (HF) Direction Finder system for various platforms, installed on an IAI-made Heron unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

Visitors at the IAI exhibition will be introduced to a broad range of technologies, products and services, including the Barak-8, Air & Missile Defense System, multi mission radar (MMR), Harop- Loitering Munitions System, precision guided weapon systems and electro-optical sensors.
