Elbit Systems

Elbit is Israel’s largest arms producer (SIPRI). Its portfolio includes systems for military aircraft and helicopters, drones, armed remote control boats, land vehicles and for command and control.

Elbit describes its drones as “the backbone” of Israel’s drone fleet (Elbit website). These drones were extensively used by the Israeli military in the 2014 attack on Gaza (Defense News, 12.8.2014).

Elbit has four subsidiaries in the UK:

  • UAV Engines
  • Instro Precision
  • Ferranti Technologies
  • Elite KL

and two joint ventures: one with Thales – U-TacS, and one with KBR – Affinity
