With strong roots in the Israeli Navy, we handpick our staff from among the top technologically oriented officers of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).


Top IDF technologies include:


  • Active armor defense systems
  • Advanced flight simulation
  • Aircraft design and modification
  • Anti-missile defense systems
  • Anti-Terror/Force Protection (AT/FP)
  • Command and control systems
  • Cyber warfare and virtual reality
  • Drones and miniature surveillance devices
  • Electro-optics
  • Field intelligence reconnaissance vehicles
  • Homeland defense
  • Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance
  • Marine unmanned surface vehicles (USVs)
  • Mid-air refueling
  • Minefield clearance
  • Non-line-of-sight (NLOS) communications
  • Optical and radar detection systems
  • Robotics
  • Stabilized weapon systems
  • Tank design and fire and control systems


Israeli officers are trained to think, analyze and improvise, and not just follow orders. The same ability to grasp the big picture that makes the IDF so effective makes Puzzle Projects the one-stop-shop for solving all the pieces of the puzzle inherent in complex technology projects. Working for defense companies, we’ve participated in a number of exciting and innovative projects like:

  • Command management systems (CMS)
  • Detection systems for homeland security (HLS)
  • Unmanned surface vehicle (USV)


…contributing to:

  • Instruction development and execution
  • Interface design specification (IDS)
  • Multi-process engineering
  • Operational ability assessment
  • Software and integration testing
  • Statement of work (SOW) documentation and proposals
  • Systems requirement analysis
  • Technical writing, e.g. parts catalogues, manuals and procedures
  • Testing and integration programs


Case Study: Protector USV by Rafael

This 9-meter long unmanned vessel is fast, stealthy and highly maneuverable. Capable of reaching speeds of up to 92 km/h (57 mph), the Protector offers surveillance, identification and interception capabilities. The Protector is highly autonomous but can easily be remote-controlled by two operators on shore or in a nearby vessel. Equipped with an extremely accurate, stabilized weapons station, a search radar, electro-optical detection systems, a speaker system and a targeting system with day and night capabilities, this easily reconfigurable system can be used for a wide variety of missions, like force protection, anti-terror, surveillance or sabotage.


Puzzle Projects is proud to be involved in this 10-year breakthrough project during the course of its entire lifecycle, from conceiving the operational model and drafting the technical documentation to instructing the crews, conducting field operations and testing and maintaining the system.
