Rafael Advanced Defense Systems has developed IRON DOME, a dual mission counter rocket, artillery and mortar (CRAM) and Very Short Range Air Defense (VSHORAD) system. IRONDOME is an affordable, effective and innovative defence solution (C-RAM class), designed for quick detection, discrimination and interception of asymmetric threats such as short-range rockets (up to 70km), mortars, and artillery shells, and also serves as a VSHORAD Missile System against traditional #AirDefence targets (aircraft, helicopters, UAVs and PGMs). The system provides the low layer of Israel’s Multi-Layered Air & Missiles Defence umbrella.
IRON DOME offers a comprehensive defense solution from a range of threats, at a low cost-per-kill. A single battery can protect a medium-size city. IRON DOME provides robust, yet selective defence.
