Israeli defense company unveils maritime Iron Dome

(JNS.org) Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defense Systems unveiled a new version of the highly successful Iron Dome anti-missile system called “C-Dome,” which will serve to protect maritime interests such as naval ships or oil and gas platforms. The new system would protect against threats from the air including missiles, helicopters, and drone aircraft. “C-Dome offers something that is not out there [in the market] yet … A small footprint and the capability to engage multiple targets and saturation threats. And it’s based on the only system in the world that has more than 1,000 intercepts,” said Rafael program director Ari Sacher, the Associated Press reported. “We can protect the ship from every direction at the same time. Most systems out there can’t do that.”
