Introduction

From 2005 to 2009, France has been the biggest arms exporter to Israel, granting export licences worth Euro 408.643.870.

Elbit Systems has an ongoing cooperation with French Thales, for the joint development, marketing and support of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).

A new Israeli-French joint venture for UAS has been established in 2011 between French defence company Sagem Défense Sécurité and Israel’s Elbit Systems.
