Israeli Rafael Iron Dome best system in the world to counter artillery shells and rockets in the sky.
At Eurosatory 2014, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems has exhibited Iron Dome, the world's only dual mission counter rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM) and Very Short Range Air Defense (VSHORAD) system. Iron Dome is an affordable, effective and innovative defense solution (CR&AM Class) for the asymmetric threats of short-range rockets, (up to 70 km), and mortars, and also serves as a VSHORAD Missile System (up to 10 km) against traditional Air Defense targets.

The Iron Dome is an effective and innovative mobile defense solution for countering short range rockets and 155 mm artillery shell threats with ranges of up to 70 km in all weather conditions, including low clouds, rain, dust storms or fog.
     

The Iron Dome system has been selected by the Israeli Defense Ministry to provide the lowest layer of Israel Multi-Layered Air & Missiles Defense umbrella. Iron Dome was chosen as the best system, offering the most comprehensive defense solution from a range of threats, in relatively short development cycle and low cost-per-kill.

Since becoming operational by the Israeli Air Force in April 2011, Iron Dome has successfully intercepted over 500 rockets that have been fired from the Gaza Strip at Southern and Central Israel. Iron Dome system has achieved a very high rate of successful interceptions. In doing so, the system saved lives and prevented serious damages to property.

Iron Dome is designed for quick detection, discrimination and interception of rockets & mortar threats with ranges of up to 70 km and also against aircraft, helicopters, UAVs and PGMs. The system is effective in all weather conditions, including low clouds, rain, dust storms or fog.

The Iron Dome provides robust, yet selective defense. Its ability to discriminate between threats headed towards the defended area and those that will fall into the sea or open fields reduces costs and limits unnecessary interceptor launches. A single launcher can protect against a medium-size city.

Iron Dome uses a unique interceptor with a special warhead that detonates the targets in the air within seconds. The system can handle multiple threats simultaneously and efficiently.
