Enter the Iron Beam Laser defense in Israel. Yalla
All those annoying, not to mention deadly, qassams and other short range rockets (like shoulder held rocket launchers) that Hamas (and Hezbollah) are so fond of firing but that are in the air for too short a time to be taken out by the Iron Dome missile defense system are about to meet their airborne eradication. The Iron Beam has been developed to stop just those pesky kabooms. We’ve got excellent long-range missile defenses with three different systems in place. The Iron Dome was developed to take out the mid-range missiles and works at just above 80% in taking them out. Now, there is an answer to the sprinters of the missile world. Unlike the previous short-range rocket defense system that was in development and then abandoned, the Iron Beam can function in cloudy and rainy weather and it can take out multiple targets at once. That is important because the terrorists often fire not just one but a whole barrage of short-range rockets simultaneously and a single laser beam unit can detect and target multiple simultaneous incoming. This fifth layer of missile defense will premiere in February at an air show in Singapore and is expected to be on the ground and in use not long after.
