I am in charge for market research, development and testing of innovative technologies and means related to UAV and C-UAS. I am specialized in multicopter technologies and its payloads. I have also tested and implemented a few C-UAS systems from leading national and International manufacturers in urban areas. Last but not least I have participated to field operations involving use of drones and C-UAS technologies.

I try to keep up with general drone knowledge by attending international summits and conferences but mostly through my network and my colleagues all around the world.

I have gained experience in the field of the use of drones as well as in C-UAS for the last six years of R&D, testing and implementation of technological means. I have learned from the best professional in the market thus building a network of professional relations all over the world. I like share knowledge with many law enforcement organizations around the world.

As many countries, Israel is threatened by terror, riots, social unrest and organized crime. This situation forced us to practice resilience, until we learn, assess and adapt to new threats. We always have been one step behind crime and terror innovation. That is precisely why we must share our common experiences (lessons learned, time invested in research development and testing, and also failures) as a truly valuable distributed knowledge to over-smart crime and terror in its own field of innovation and become “Agile”.
