Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defense Systems signed a cooperation agreement with the Romanian’s Romaero to produce air defense and other weapons systems the two companies hope to offer to the Romanian armed forces, timesofisrael.com reports.
The deal, signed in Bucharest, will include development of the sea-borne version of the Iron Dome short-range missile defense system, as well as Samson remote control weapons systems, and Spike tactical missiles, Rafael said in a statement Thursday.
Rafael director general Yoav Har-Even inked the agreement with Remus Vulpescu, director general Romaero, at the Black Sea Defense & Aerospace 2018 exhibition in Bucharest, the same source informs.
“The new cooperation will provide a solution to the operational needs of the Romanian army in upcoming procurement plans that were already approved by the Romanian government,” Rafael said.
The statement did not give an estimate for how much the cooperation might be worth to the companies.
