Israel Export & International Cooperation Institute (IEICI)
The HLS Department of the IEICI assists 
Israeli companies in their export activities
Israel has more than 300 Homeland Security (HLS) companies exporting a range of products, systems and services. These solutions have been born by the necessity of Israel’s survival and matured by the reality of the continual terrorist threat to the country.
No other country has such a large pool of experienced former security, military and police personnel and no other country has been able to field test its systems and solutions in real-time situations.
This combined with Israel’s high-tech capabilities and strong R&D capabilities allows the country’s HLS industry to produce tailor-made solutions for each customer at the best-value prices.

Israel’s HLS industry is characterized by:
  • World-renowned innovative and operational tested technologies
  • Globally deployed integrated systems
  • Highly skilled creative personnel
  • Reliable, economically viable solutions
  • Comply with international standards for quality, safety and environmental protection
Areas of Expertise
Israel’s areas of security expertise include:
  • Aviation Maritime and Public Transport
  • Borders and Critical Infrastructure
  • Public and Commercial Facilities
  • Counter Terror and Physical Protection
  • Crisis and Emergency Management Systems
  • Safe-City Projects
  • Security for major International Events such as the Olympic Games, World Cup and European Soccer Championships
  • Public Awareness and Preparedness for non-conventional threats
  • Biometric Solutions
  • IT Security and Anti Fraud
  • Service Providers and more.
Custom-Made Solutions
Israel provides both “off the shelf” and custom-made comprehensive solutions that take into account the specific needs of individual customers and countries. These holistic solutions encompass:
  • Risk assessment simulation and training systems
  • Advanced perimeter protection solutions including observation, sensors and radars
  • Biometrics – smart cards, face recognition for identification
  • Communications for first responders and emergency situations
  • Unmanned systems for air, land and sea
  • Security forces protection solutions for personal and armed vehicles
  • IED for police, airports and the military
  • Jamming and interception for law enforcement and government authorities
  • IT security and cyber terror
Promoting Israel’s HLS Industry
The Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute (IEICI) is the primary organization facilitating trade ties, joint ventures and strategic alliances between overseas and Israeli companies. Established jointly by the government and industry in 1958, the IEICI is charged with promoting Israel’s exports of goods and services, and is one of Israel’s official, professional organizations for handling, managing and furthering the efforts of Homeland Security related industries to seek, identify, approach and penetrate HLS and public safety projects and programs worldwide. This is achieved through the HLS Department, which is within the IEICI’s Technologies Division, one of IEICI’s five business departments. The HLS Department is familiar with the hundreds of local security-related industries around Israel. The HLS Department of the IEICI operates international initiatives and unique programs. The Department provides information to overseas companies about these Israeli capabilities and set up contacts, meetings and tours in Israel for visiting delegations of public officials and private businessmen. At the same time the Department provides information to Israeli companies about overseas opportunities and assists them in penetrating new markets and “opening doors” where appropriate. The Department also organizes overseas delegations of Israeli companies to conferences and events and organizes Israeli pavilions at major trade fairs.

2009/2010 Target Markets
In 2009/2010 the HLS Department is focusing efforts on the following markets and countries:
India - World market research has indicated that India is one of the larger growth markets in civilian security where there is increasing counter-terrorism awareness due to the tragic terror attack in Mumbai in 2008 and other internal security problems on the subcontinent. The Commonwealth Games in New Delhi in 2010 in which 52 countries will participate has huge potential for HLS industries.
Central and Eastern Europe - Euro 2012 (the European soccer championships) in Poland and Ukraine requires upgraded security infrastructures at airports, hotels, transport security, mass public events and more.
Far East and Asia - This region is becoming increasingly vulnerable to terror and is continually having to cope with natural disasters. This region also has the largest potential for economic growth and IEICI is focusing on Japan, India, Thailand, Vietnam and Korea.
Latin America - Brazil, one of the world’s fastest growing economies, is having to combat increasing crime and terror, and is a gateway to the rest of the continent.
South Africa - Will host the 2010 World Cup requiring the country to find solutions for global terror and chronic crime.
Western Europe - France holds two of the world’s most important showcases for HLS products – the Paris air show in June and the HLS exhibition (MILIPOL) in November.
United States- Ongoing activities in this central market with a major focus on federal and state authorities, end-users and strategic business partners.
