Rafael Teams with ROMAERO

Rafael launches industrial partnership with ROMAERO for local Romanian production of air defence & land systems

Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd., a global leading defence company, signed a teaming agreement with ROMAERO, Romania’s largest government-controlled Aerospace & Defence Industry. 

As part of their new partnership, Rafael and ROMAERO will consolidate a local partnership to facilitate local production and knowledge transfer geared towards various Romanian acquisition programmes.

The new cooperation will address the Romanian Army’s operational requirements in the upcoming programs already approved by Romania’s parliament. These include:

  • Air defence systems – the combat-proven IRON DOME system, with over 1,700 combat interceptions at a success rate of over 90% and the combat-proven SPYDER air defence system, already supplied to India and to other countries around the world, and the C-DOME Naval Air Defense System, aimed at equipping Romania’s four new corvettes to address Romania’s SHORAD and VSHORAD programmes;
  • Remote Weapon Stations – the SAMSON 30mm calibre, with 25 customers around the world. SAMSON is being offered for Romania’s 400 Rheinmetall vehicles;
  • EO, Precise Tactical Missiles – SPIKE – a family of electro-optical precise tactical missiles including its brand new SPIKE LR 2 5th generation missile. SPIKE Family missiles have been sold to 29 countries, with 30,000 missiles already supplied.

Rafael’s cutting edge solutions are in use throughout the world, as well as in Romania,” Maj.Gen. (Ret.) Har-Even said. “We look forward to expanding our presence here and to working with our new partners at ROMAERO as our strategic partner to create new avenues of cooperation with local Romanian industry and suppliers. This is an essential aspect of our corporate policy and strategy – a dedication to strong, win-win partnerships and long-term collaboration to establish technological advancement, local production and capabilities.”

Romania’s increase in defense spending brings unprecedented opportunities for major investments in the defense industry. We are very excited to be teaming with Rafael, one of the world’s most ground-breaking defense industries. Together we will be able to extend our reach and sales internationally, for state-of-the-art systems produced in Romania and suitable for any platform, to fulfill Romania’s needs and requirements. We will work to provide high quality services and competitive pricing, as well as business development through marketing performance,” Mr. Vulpescu concludes.
