The Israeli Air Force is set to build additional hardened aircraft shelters, according to a notice published on the USU Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) website on 12 July. The cost of the project is estimated at over $10 million.

The notification did not specify the number of aircraft shelters that will be built or the base where they will be located but said they would take up an area of about 4,000 square-meters.

The work will also involve constructing about 1.5 km of taxiways, 3.3 km of service roads, 2,150 square-meters of auxiliary facilities, 450 square-meters of administrative buildings, 1,900 square-meters of utilities tunnels, and 5,600 square-meters of general storage buildings.
