(ClevelandJewishNews) Elta systems, a division of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), is teaming up with the Boston-based MassChallenge startup accelerator, which will assist startups developing an array of sensors and quantum-based technology. MassChallenge also maintains a headquarters in Jerusalem.
This year’s program will seek out startups that develop high-frequency sensors, quantum computing and other systems—some of which could be integrated with Elta’s own airborne intelligence, cyber, ground, air-defense and space systems.
“This year is unique since we set the topic: future sensing technology,” said Lupa. “This is a part of Elta’s area of activity. It is about any kind of sensing technology—optical, thermal or magnetic. Dozens of startups have signed up. Most are from Israel, but some are from Europe, Asia and South America,” he noted.
The cooperation will see Elta help startups develop, meet with investors, receive assistance with marketing and sales, and receive tips on how to reach target audiences.
