RADA Electronic Industries is an Israeli company specializing in defense electronics. It furnishes its clients with data recording and management systems, navigation systems, and radar sensors, among other products.[1] Its shares are traded on the NASDAQ Capital Market.


RADA Electronic Industries was founded in 1970 by Haim Niessenson.[2][3] In 1998, owing to pressure from Boeing, Niessenson retired from his position as CEO of the company. Herzl Boedinger, who was RADA's international marketing manager and president of the U.S.-based subsidiary, and who had earlier served as commander of the Israeli Air Force, became president and CEO of RADA.[4] In 2007, Zvi Alon, who was vice president of marketing and sales and had in the 1980s been involved in the Lavi Project, took on the role of CEO.[5][6]
