Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) announced on Sunday morning that it had signed a deal worth $630 million with Indian state-owned Bharat Electronics Limited.
As part of the agreement, IAI will supply the marine version of the Barak 8 air defense system to be installed on four Indian Navy vessels, Israeli news site Ynet reports.
In September 2016, India announced that it had carried out a successful test of the Barak 8, which was a joint project between the two countries.
The missile system is designed to defend against a variety of short-to-long-range airborne threats, including fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, drones and projectiles. IAI says it is able to simultaneously engage multiple targets day and night and in all weather conditions.
At the start of May, three Indian Navy ships docked at the northern Israel port of Haifa for three days as part of a deployment to the Mediterranean and West Coast of Africa.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is due to visit Israel in July, the first ever trip of its kind by an Indian premier.
