The U.S. Army will Test the Israeli Iron Dome Defence System
JERUSALEM, Israel (BulgarianMilitary.com) – The U.S army will test the Israel developed Iron dome defence system for its deployed forces around the world, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
The Iron Dome system developed by Rafael has been operational in the Israeli Air Force since 2011 and has been proven on the battlefield with many operational interceptions.
The Iron Dome Weapon System, developed by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, detects, assess and intercepts incoming rockets, artillery shells and mortars.
Raytheon has teamed with Rafael on the production of Iron Dome’s Tamir interceptor missiles, which kill incoming threats launched from ranges of 2.5 –43 miles/
It’s the world’s most used missile defense system, intercepting more than 2000 targets with a greater than 90 percent success rate since being fielded in 2011.
The system is effective day or night and in all weather conditions, including low clouds, rain, dust storms and fog. It features a first-of-its-kind multi-mission launcher, which is designed to fire a variety of interceptor missiles, depending on the threat.
A number of Iron Dome batteries are deployed around Israel and when tension increases in one border more batteries are transferred to that area.
