Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defense systems Ltd., has devised a new concept of a revolutionary air defence system that will combine enablement the modern technologies to deal with the ever-changing combat challenges on the modern battlefield.
Rafael to unveil during at EUROSATORY 2018 exhibition its Integrated all-in-one air defense based on the operational and combat-proven Iron Dome system, which has achieved more than 1700 combat interceptions at a success rate of over 90%.
According to the company’s statement, Very Short Range (VSHORAD) integrated air defense and counter rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM) System, integrated on a single vehicle. It provides protection of motorized or mechanized troops, as well as point air defense of military/industrial/administrative installations.
A single battery can protect a medium-size city. The new advanced system provides robust, yet selective defense. The complex uses a unique interceptor with a special warhead that detonates the targets in the air. Its ability to discriminate between threats headed towards a populated area and those that will fall into the sea or open fields reduces costs and limits unnecessary interceptor launches.
The system is effective in all weather conditions, including low clouds, rain, dust storms or fog. The system can engage multiple threats simultaneously and efficiently.
