Develop

DRITA promotes development by delivering great value to Israeli companies seeking U.S. market entry and to American companies seeking access to Israeli markets and cutting edge technologies. In June 2014 David Goodman, Director, Ohio Development Services, and Israeli Consul General Yaron Sideman signed a Memorandum of Understanding promoting joint industrial R&D between Ohio and Israel. The agreement will allow companies in both states to collaborate on technology development, receiving funding from both Ohio and Israel.

Connect

A successful press conference announcing the implementation of the Simlat IMPACT System in the Sinclair Community College National UAS Training and Certification Center. DRITA facilitated hundreds of introductions and interactions and identified dozens of collaboration opportunities including 25+ NDA’s signed between Israeli and Dayton Region companies in diverse sectors such as Medical Devices, Medical IT, Aerospace, HLS, Water, Defense and Sensor Technology.

Collaborate

Collaboration opportunities are abundant in the Dayton Region! In June 2015 Sinclair Community College, Montgomery County and DRITA (Dayton Region Israel Trade Alliance), integrated the Simlat ISR Multi Purpose Advanced Class Training (IMPACT) into Sinclair’s UAS National Training Center allowing students the opportunity to train on various platforms and payloads to perform their respective missions, all connected via network configuration and working simultaneously.

The Dayton Region Israel Trade Alliance (DRITA) was recognized with a 2016 Innovation Index Award by the Dayton Business Journal.

“Since DRITA was formalized, I have had the pleasure of meeting some excellent engineers and business folks. Currently, I am working with UAV Technologies and Nexus – both of whom were introduced by DRITA. We are looking forward to a synergistic relationship from both companies as we expand into the small unmanned aerial systems market.”
