The Israeli Air Force's intelligence-gathering aircraft, the "Oron," has been declared operational. During the ongoing Sword of Iron War, it has already conducted missions against Hamas in Gaza, accumulating hundreds of flight hours in over 100 sorties.

The "Oron" is a Gulfstream G550 executive jet, equipped with advanced electronic equipment, including an AESA radar from Elta/IAI, electro-optical sensors for intelligence gathering, signal intelligence systems, and sophisticated data processing systems. Its uniqueness lies in its ability to perform a variety of intelligence-gathering missions during the same sortie and transmit the information to its users.

The aircraft was developed by the Israeli Ministry of Defense and the Israel Aerospace Industries. Its sensors enable it to scan large, distant, and long-range surface areas.

The “Oron” includes stations for intelligence officers, computer systems for data processing, and a range of over 1,000 kilometers. It has been assigned to Squadron 122, which also operates the “Eitam” and “Shavit” aircraft.
