Jerusalem August 28: The Israeli army began test-flying the Oron, a Gulfstream G550 reconnaissance aircraft equipped with intelligence systems.
The Defense Ministry said in a statement on Sunday that after the intelligence systems were integrated into the “advanced” Orons, the military began test flights, Xinhua reported.
The ministry added that the aircraft will provide the Israeli army with “unprecedented intelligence capabilities across vast terrain, allowing monitoring of ground movements in real time under diverse weather conditions and visibility.”
The head of the Defense Ministry’s Custom Aircraft Branch, identified in the press release only by his initials, Y, said the Oron is “a combined multi-domain, multi-sensor solution that will provide the Israel Defense Forces with game-changing capabilities to counter both near and far threats.”
Its unique capabilities include the ability to accurately track multiple targets across a wide area of coverage, “in all weather and visibility conditions, with high accuracy at great distances and in real time, enabling a timely and decisive response to all threats,” he said. “
The Oron was delivered in 2021 by US-based airframe company Gulfstream Aerospace to the Israel Air Force as the G550 Special Mission version for Surveillance Operations.
