Ofek 324 is the computing unit of the Israeli Air Force. Ofek develops and maintains software found on IAF aircraft, command and control systems, knowledge management systems, human resources, logistics and much more.

The unit operates from three different IAF bases and is subordinate to the IAF Equipment Group. Its current head is Colonel Yariv.

Ofek was established in December 2005, by merging two former IAF computing units, Unit 180 (founded 1959) and Mamdas (founded 1967)[1] .
