Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. will unveil its Iron Beam laser air-defense system at next month's Singapore Air Show. Iron Beam is a high-energy laser based system against rockets, mortar, and airborne target attacks.
Iron Beam will complement the battle proven Iron Dome short-range rocket defense system by assisting in intercepting very-short-range rockets fired at Israel.
"Israel Defense" reports that this will add an extra dimension to Israel's missile defense program with Iron Beam (very short-range), Iron Dome (short-range), David's Sling (medium-range), and the Arrow 2 and Arrow 3 (long-range).
