Head of SIBAT, Brig. Gen. (Res.), Yair Kulas, who will inaugurate the national pavilion in Washington, said: "We are thrilled to resume our participation in defense exhibitions around the world, following the COVID pandemic."

"Both large Israeli industries and startups will exhibit their exceptional solutions and cutting-edge technologies. The Ministry of Defense is already working with the new US administration to promote technological collaboration with American industries, and we intend to use this exhibition as an opportunity to further advance additional projects."
