Israel’s ‘Green Rock’ Moves Against Missiles

The system's best feature is its versatility: the unit is mobile and can be used against a variety of targets.

Israel has just received its newest defense against the Palestinian Authority’s attacks on the western Negev — or anywhere in the country, for that matter.

The new system arrived in IDF hands on Wednesday — the same morning the PA unity government launched another rocket attack from Gaza on southern Israel. The Qassam exploded at the entrance to a kibbutz, about 300 meters from a private home. No one was physically injured, but several people were shaken up.

With the ‘Green Rock’ mobile autonomous tactical counter Rocket, Artillery & Mortar (C-RAM) system, perhaps such attacks will be neutralized in the near future.

The system, to be known to the IDF as ‘Wind Shield,’ was produced by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI)’s ELTA subsidiary. It is installed on a moving vehicle (read: armored car, truck, all-terrain vehicle or whatever have you), and off you go.

It includes a “phased-array doppler radar” which detects the originating launching point of ballistic munitions such as rockets, artillery and mortars, and tracks their trajectories. In addition, it can intercept the fire before it reaches the target. The system can also be used to detect low-flying airborne targets such as UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), gliders and hovering platforms.

The system will be on display at the Eurostatory exhibition to be held June 16-20 in Paris.
