RDC Rafael Development Corporation

Business Overview

DESCRIPTION

RDC – Rafael Development Corporation Ltd. is a unique company, blending seemingly contradictory disciplines into viable commercial products. Our core business is the identification and development of potentially valuable commercial technologies based on hi-tech defense technologies developed within Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. (www.rafael.com), enhanced with the financial capabilities of Elron Electronic Industries Ltd. (www.elron.com)

RDC is an incubator, a business development and a holding company, all in one. Since established in 1993, we have leveraged the strong partnership of both Elron and Rafael to found numerous hi-tech companies in a wide range of disciplines – from medical devices to telecommunications and semiconductors, and many others. To date, RDC has established 15 companies and several projects in different stages.

With our unique strategy and highly experienced management, RDC primarily identifies existing market needs, defines the technological concept of the solution, creates a valid business plan and finally establishes a new company which will develop the product or application.

Thanks to our affiliation with Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. – one of the world’s foremost developers of defense technologies, RDC has first rights to commercially exploit defense technologies developed within Rafael for civilian use.

RDC is located in the Azrieli Center, Tel Aviv, Israel.
