Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) has won tenders valued at approx. $50 million (€40 million) for upgrading the avionics on three separate platforms in Republic of Korea Air Force (RoKAF) service, the company announced on 4 January.
The avionic upgrade process includes converting a used aircraft and retrofitting all or part of the avionics with new, advanced systems. The result is an aircraft with advanced performance, capable of meeting the challenges of modern military or civilian aviation.
“The recent tenders won in South Korea reflects the Korean Defence Minister’s confidence in IAI's Aviation Group [which] seeks to expand its operations in South Korea, both as a supplier and as a client. Recently, we relocated to South Korea the wings’ assembly line for our G280 business jet. We anticipate more collaborations and deals down the road," commented the Group's General Manager, Yosef Melamed.
