The Israeli Defense Ministry announced the completion of tests of the missile defense system "Iron Dome" ("Kipat Barzel") sea-based, reports bmpd.


In Israel, completed tests of the marine version of the missile system


The tests were carried out by the military in collaboration with the specialists of the company "Raphael".

“A series of tests lasted several days. In the course of them, various scenarios for intercepting 122-mm Grad rockets launched from the MLRS against sea targets were tested. The Adir radar (EL / M-2248 MF-STAR) of the Saar-5 corvette tracked targets, then they were intercepted by Tamir interceptor missiles, ”the article says.



The first launch of the “Iron Dome” on board the corvette was carried out back in February 2016 and already then was successful. It is noted that in the course of the last tests "all the goals, both the main and secondary ones, were achieved."

According to the resource, the new system is called “Tamir-Adir”, or “Sea Iron Dome” (“Kipat Barzel Yamit”) or “Sea Dome” (“Kipa Yamit”).

The main goal of the system is the protection of Israeli marine energy infrastructures.

It is reported that at present, “there are two gas production platforms in Israel, a third will open in 2019, and a liquefied gas tanker is also located off the coast.”

Today, about 60% of Israel's electricity is generated on natural gas, and in the future this volume will increase to 70-75%. In 2014, during Operation Mighty Cliff, Hamas militants had already attempted to hit the platforms with MLRS fire.

    Getting ready ... it seems Israel did not like our talks in Sochi request
    It is better to play it safe who knows what Syria will now be

        the man believes that these weapons were invented and manufactured as a response ... in a couple of weeks ... it will pass, with age ...

      Only one question: why is Israel’s defense capability so panicky? Horror is direct. The country is peaceful. He wants to fight with anyone. Toko trade. And you bale, and a beam, and submarines, and f35, and a dimon with a yao storage in the Negev, ATGM, rifle, drones, robots, a tank with a trophy, heavy armored personnel carrier, missiles ..... didn’t forget anything? A country the size of a Moscow region. I recall the life story of David and Solomon. Both began their lives with murders and bandit attacks on the highway. Also, what did they do in life, where is the genocide

    when in Israel will create a short-range missile defense on laser energy? the cost of intercepting a target will be much cheaper

      There was a statement about such a system - called the Iron Ray. They wrote that they were working on it, etc. But since 2016, the press has been kind of silence and therefore it is hard to say at what exact stage the Iron Ray is.

        Because even you are not able to create a real combat, and all the more inexpensive laser complex that can efficiently operate on targets that maneuver and fly at high speeds (missiles, planes) ...

          I think the matter is different - there are forces, it takes time


          The Israeli military concern Rafael first demonstrated the system at an exhibition in Singapore on February 11, 2014, where it announced that over a hundred tests were conducted in which the system was aimed at artillery mines and shells, and also shot down small UAVs. The laser power was said to be “tens of kilowatts” and will be brought to hundreds of kW.

          The development of the Iron Ray is funded primarily by the Israeli Ministry of Defense, and the development concern is awaiting a decision by the Ministry to deploy this system. The developer also plans to increase the range of the system and cooperate with other companies for its further improvement.


          In 2015, there was a message that it would take at least 5 years for this system to go into service.

          Maybe we will soon hear about this system again. wink

        It can, which is why India buys it and puts it on its ships with the Brahmos

        Against the yacht and the like, this system was created.

            India tested on exercises.
            The Indians will not put on their ships a system that is not able to bring down the same brahmos.

    Laser? Goals to intercept? But what about this:

    "... Viktor Sharkov (leading expert at Moscow State University; - professor, doctor of technical sciences, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Academy of Sciences, laureate of the Kurchatov Prize of the 1st degree) writes: In the mid-80s I tried to analyze the deafening failure of full-scale tests of powerful lasers on He was sent there on the instructions of Academician A. M. Dykhne “to re-educate and get acquainted with the real industry.” He served on a laser ship and onshore training ground for a couple of years, developed with his colleague B. A. Tikhonov methods of analyzing the physical causes of chronic failures with gas Megawatt lasers at a distance of a mile couldn’t even set fire to a piece of paper, "scary" beams completely scattered on the way to the target. And the atmosphere played a non-title role. Some unexpected factors were highlighted. Very small fluctuations in the gas density of the active medium, almost unavoidable for high-power installations make a cheap light bulb from a combat laser.
    Average fluctuations of 1% scale reduce the laser range by about 100 times. The situation with pulsed lasers is slightly better, where this factor is weaker. And, of course, without an electric discharge, this factor weakens by an order of magnitude. Also not sugar, but still ... "
    And further:
    "... As a result, ten years later, the grandiose" high-power laser-poppycock "became absolutely apparent, when the" active medium generators "- the" golden buttons "- did not provide the specified range even by 1% due to the poor quality of the radiation, which was catastrophically corrupted by optical inhomogeneities The megawatt laser from the Dixon ship at a distance of 2 km could not even set fire to a piece of paper on the Crimean coast. Today I’m just formulating the physical reason for the obvious grandiose failure of the “laser bullshit”, and I had hoped before, like all specialists in generators active media, that other optical companies will somehow bring the laser beam quality to the level set by the military. They will be ordered from the CPSU Central Committee, and they will do it at a high price. It didn’t work out. It is impossible to turn a light bulb into a long-range spotlight if physical laws optics forbid it. The laws of nature are not subject to political and career "mantras" ... "
    Find on the internet, there in detail about how the Americans fooled their heads ...

      I don’t know what a respected professor writes there, but tests are underway and the good work of lasers has been proved.
      Not yet at a very great distance, but the process is ongoing.

      "Megawatt lasers at a distance of a mile couldn’t even set fire to a piece of paper,
      "Scary" rays completely scattered on the way to the target "///

      Since then, a lot of water has flowed.
      And the engineers realized that we shouldn’t increase the power of one
      beam, and to bring many low-power rays into one point on the target.
      Then megawatts are not needed. Laser with a total beam power of 70-100 kW
      calmly burns iron. Not armor, but steel shells of 5-10 mm without problems.
      And such lasers are already working, one is installed on a conventional landing ship

          By this? UAVs, boats. He is relatively weak - on trial. The next one plans to double or triple the power ..

            we’ll look at “more powerful”, but for now bullshit. half a minute to fry the target at a distance of less than a kilometer, it is definitely useless in combat conditions. and which boats to sink like that? niggas on inflatable boats off the coast of France or Turkey? so the Turks do it with hooks. also effective but significantly cheaper.
            from the point of view of related technologies, too, no steps forward. standard target tracking system.
            but the fact that the "partners" spend resources on this dead end is not bad yes

      IMHO, all of the above is true for laser tactics as a replacement for missiles and shells.
      Now they see the main use of lasers in the role of short-range air defense, the fight against drones, for which the laser is quite suitable, and ranges of 100 km are not needed.

    When the American Manhattan result appeared, all the information was classified and disappeared from the open press. So silence on the "iron rays" is possibly associated with the completion of this project in Israel, or its exit to the finish line.

    Israel depends on foreign aid.
    Help will disappear and this dwarf state will also disappear.
