The Georgian Ministry of Defence and Israeli security companies agreed to "rehabilitate and modernize" the country's air defense system and upgrade systems of the Air Force.


In agreements unveiled by the Defence Ministry last Friday, the Rafael Advanced Defence Systems company will work with the Georgian Defence Force to bring anti-aircraft assets up to required standards, and personnel manning the systems will also be re-trained. Meanwhile, Elbit Systems will use their expertise to upgrade electronic systems of air assets of the armed forces.

The deal is aimed at bringing the fixed-wing and helicopter fleet of the GDF up to NATO standards as part of an initiative announced by Defence Minister Irakli Garibashvili this summer. The Georgian ministry has already sent some military aircraft to be thoroughly repaired and updated at factories of the local  Tbilaviamsheni Company, with assets such as Su-25 ground attack aircraft, L-39 jets, Mi-24 attack helicopters and UH-1 utility helicopters set to undergo the program.
