SIBAT, the Directorate for International Defense Cooperation within Israel’s Ministry of Defense (IMOD), is using new technological solutions developed by Israeli defence companies that address a variety of needs that arise in the fight against COVID-19.
“To win the fight against COVID-19, Israel has employed the latest technologies and brightest minds,” said Brig. Gen. (Res.) Yair Kulas, SIBAT’s director. “Israel’s defence industries have harnessed the most advanced technologies developed for military use, successfully turning them into information and surveillance systems, and solutions for wide-scale healthcare management and readiness for emergency response on both the national and municipal levels. Together, the MOD and Israel’s defence industries have created new tools that enable the nation to sustain as normal a life as possible while fighting the pandemic.”
The following documents outline the solutions in use:
- The Use of Intelligence Systems in Developing COVID-19 Battle Plans
- Surveillance Systems Turned into Pandemic Sentinels
- Curbing Contagion with Information Technology
“Sophisticated AI algorithms, voice analytics, genuine emotion detection, GPS, data mining, and satellite earth-imagery are just a few of the cutting-edge systems developed by Israel’s defense companies, delivering bespoke solutions to address evolving COVID-19 challenges,” Kulas said.
