Rafael presents Iron Dome C-RAM and V-SHORAD System at Paris Air Show 2015
At Paris Air Show 2015, Rafael presents Iron Dome, the world's only dual mission counter rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM) and Very Short Range Air Defense (VSHORAD) system. Iron Dome is an affordable, effective and innovative defense solution (CRAM class), designed for quick detection, discrimination and interception of asymmetric threats such as short-range rockets (up to 70 km), mortars, and artillery shells, and also serves as a VSHORAD Missile System against traditional Air Defense targets (aircraft, helicopters, UAVs and PGMs).

 Iron Dome uses a unique interceptor with a special warhead that detonates the targets in the air. The system can engage multiple threats simultaneously and efficiently.

Since becoming operational by the Israeli Air Force in April 2011, Iron Dome has successfully intercepted over 1700 rockets that have been fired from the Gaza Strip, from the Sinai and from Lebanon at Israel, with 90% rate of success (as reported by the Israeli Air Force). In doing so, the system has saved lives and prevented serious damage to property.

Iron dome has undergone significant upgrades, enabling it to counter a very wide variety of aerial threats, as was experienced during operation "Protective Edge", against rockets that were fired at many areas in Israel in July-August 2014.
