Iron Dome demonstrates anti UAV capabilities

Posted by Dylan Malyasov on

Israeli Rafael’s Iron Dome rocket interceptor has recently demonstrated its capability of intercepting all types of unmanned air vehicle.

The Iron Dome counter-rocket, artillery and mortar system has to date made more than 1,500 combat intercepts, and while the ability to neutralize UAV threats has always been touted, it had never previously been seen.

Video footage shows Iron Dome interceptions of both low and high-flying UAVs, in both the “look-up” and “look-down” scenarios. Images of wreckage from the targets indicate they were destroyed by the interceptor’s large warhead.
