The company develops, manufactures and markets unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for governments all around the world and for military and civilian entities in Israel. The company also supplies aerial intelligence surveillance products. Company products are manufactured through its subsidiaries’ direct material support; its technological equipment is supplied by Commtact, the navigation systems by Al Cielo, and the artillery fuse by Orion.

The company is the first Israeli civilian company to carry out all-inclusive operational missions for the Israeli army, some taking place in Gaza and the West Bank. Israeli forces have been outsourcing visual intelligence services for field security to the company since 2002.
