The naval defense system based on Iron Dome was tested against rockets, cruise missiles, and UAVs.
The “Protective Dome,” a naval defense system based on the Iron Dome air-defense system, was successfully tested for the first time on the Saar-6 Corvette INS Magen, the Defense Ministry said Monday.
The Israel Navy, the Defense Ministry’s Israel Missile Defense Organization (IMDO) in the Administration for the Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure (Maf’at), Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) completed a series of interception tests with the Protective Dome against a variety of threats.
The threats tested included rockets, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs. The system will be integrated into the national system for air defense and is another piece in the multilayered system, alongside the Arrow and David’s Sling systems.
Rafael developed the Iron Dome missile-defense system. IAI’s Elta Systems developed the MF-STAR (Magen Adir) radar, and the mPrest software company developed the command and control system of the Protective Dome system.
