Lights appear in the dim night sky. An unknown number of alien spaceships are descending on Earth. The world’s inhabitants take refuge in shelters. Time is running out. How will the Israel Defense Forces face this alien invasion threatening to destroy the world? The IDF look towards its tech-force.
This was the basis of the latest training exercise for the Israel Air Force’s computer programing unit "Ofek" (horizon), meant to instill in the participants the importance of cyber defense by trying them sabotage the technological system of the alien spacecraft.
"The participants of the exercise work daily on developing operational programs for the air force," explained the commander of the engineering unit to the IDF website, Lt. Col. Meir.
