From 'Breaking Defence':

"TEL AVIV: For decades, Israel has stood as one of the smallest nations to have an indigenous space program, with a national security capability built around large, exquisite capabilities.

Now, with the potential of small satellites ó cheaper to launch, cheaper to design and cheaper to lose in a combat scenario ó being embraced around the globe, Israelís government is considering its options. And unsurprisingly, Israelís major industrial players have followed suit, with the hopes of cashing in on both domestic needs and a potentially robust export market."
