Airpower and the Asymmetric Conflict Research Center
The aim of this Center is to study the role and contribution of airpower in the fight against terror organizations. It also explores how the air force can optimize its considerable ability when countering an “amorphous” enemy, both independently and in collaboration with other bodies faced with the challenge, in the IDF and beyond.

The Information Center collects and catalogs books, periodicals and films on the subjects of aviation and space and strives to encourage and assist anyone interested in these fields. The Center updates the Institute website and publishes a monthly newsletter.
The Digital library for the IAF history and the heritage
The first stage of this project is ready and we open it to the public free of charge.
The website currently contains 40 books, 200 old Journals of the IAF and a few videos. In total, about 40,000 pages were screened and processed using O.C.R. before upload to the website.
We receive very worm feedback from many people that saw the new site and we hope it will contribute to bring closer the public to the Air Force.
