​Professor Israel has experience with balloon- and satellite-borne instrumentation for cosmic-ray astrophysics extending back to his joining the Washington University faculty in 1968.

Israel was a co-investigator on the Trans-Iron Galactic Element Recorder (TIGER) experiment. Subsequently, he and his colleagues flew a larger Super-TIGER, which had a record-breaking 55-day flight over Antarctica in December 2012 - January 2013.
