India Evaluating Iron Dome as Israel Expands its Defensive Range

Rafael is offering its “Iron Dome” rocket interceptor to the Indian army, which would be using it against both government and rogue attacks anticipated from its Muslim neighbor Pakistan.

The “Iron Dome” has achieved an amazing 90 % kill rate in the last fighting in Gaza during Operation Pillar of Defense. And Rafael is developing its longer range rocket and missile interceptor – the “David’s Sling,” scheduled for completion in late 2014.

Last November, Rafael and the Israeli missile defense organization (IMDO) performed a successful test of the “David’s Sling” long range rocket interceptor system.

During the test, Israel’s homeland security portal iHLS reports, the Elta radar was operated in “shadow” mode while the target was detected by other sensors. In future tests, the Elta radar will be used as the main sensor.

The sensors detected the incoming long range rocket and, seconds, later the “Stunner” interceptor was launched and destroyed the target rocket. Sources said that the inert interceptor achieved a kinetic hit.

The “David’s Sling” is being developed as a “kinetic kill” system that will allow to verify that the threat has been eliminated.

The “David’s Sling” system is an additional part of the multi layered system Israel is building to defend itself against rockets and missiles. The essential layer in the system is the “Iron Dome.”

The “David’s Sling” will serve as the second layer, intercepting incoming rockets and cruise missiles from a range of 45 to 150 miles (this range is going to increase in the future), with the Arrow-2 and Arrow-3 functioning as the third layer—against ballistic missiles.

Many countries in the world have realized that rockets of all types are not only a threat for troops but for civilians. That might affect the potential size of the market for anti rockets systems.
