Israel intends to introduce a new laser system into the missile defense system

42

Israel plans to introduce laser systems into the missile defense system by the end of this year to destroy drones and missiles. According to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, a decision was made to speed up developments in this area.


The Israel Defense Forces will receive a new laser system during this year, which will be included in the multi-layered missile defense. According to the plans of the Ministry of Defense of the country, the laser system will have to be used to destroy drones and missiles launched at Israel, instead of anti-aircraft missile systems, the use of which in some cases is not economically feasible.

Initially, the new system will pass the stage of experimental operation in the south of the country, then it is planned to deploy it along the entire border of Israel.

(...) This will allow us, in the medium to long term, to surround Israel with a laser wall that will protect us from mines, missiles, drones and other threats, which will allow us to take away the strongest card from the enemy

- said the Israeli prime minister.

Work on the creation of combat lasers in Israel has been going on for quite a long time. Three systems were demonstrated two years ago, each of which included an electric laser with a power of up to 100 kW.

The first system was intended to be ground-based as an addition to the Iron Dome. The second system is designed to be installed on cars or armored vehicles, it is designed to protect units on the march or in positions. And it was planned to equip transport aircraft with a third laser system.

Last year, at the beginning of summer, an airborne combat laser system was tested in Israel. As reported, the combat laser was installed on board a Cessna 208B Grand Caravan light single-engine aircraft and hit a light drone during testing. The tests were considered successful.

    Is something about our Peresvet laser complex quiet, or is everything so classified, is it still on experimental combat duty?

      Another storyteller. He forgot to tell how much electricity these lasers need. First, you will have to build a dozen power plants, but there are no full-flowing rivers there, and building nuclear ones is too expensive.

        Yes, not such a storyteller.
        If you shoot down drones, then you don’t need very high power. Enough of the lithium-ionistor bundle. The energy there for a couple of pulses is more than enough. Yes, you can’t fail an ICBM, but a Chinese copter is quite. And then sit yourself calmly charged for at least an hour. I was engaged in lithium and ionistors and now I am afraid to work with them, to be honest. So the niche is in the laser field. Well, don’t spend MANPADS on a penny drone!

          Of course, it’s suitable against a couple of drones, but if a couple of dozens is already a problem. EW is easier to use.

    Adoption has already been postponed several times.
    Although there were successful interceptions of mortar mines near Gaza.
    The requirements for the capabilities of the laser increased and the power turned out to be insufficient.
    Israel has developed a targeting and targeting system. The laser itself is American. The laser type has changed several times.

        Yes, this is normal, such tests were carried out. I don’t remember, somewhere they even covered mine with mirror paint - zero sense.

        The 50 kW laser already hits Grad mines and missiles, but it is not reliable and requires a long hold. It is believed that for real operation you need about 150 kW.

            I also saw a photo of an artillery shell with a mirror coating destroyed by a mbda laser, but it was in a printed publication, I can’t find it on the net.

              Most likely the target also rotates around the axis. That is why the holding time is so long. But that worked great too. The same copter may "react" in a completely different way. From instant (very fast) destruction, to the loss of transparency of the optics on the equipment, which makes it completely useless if it is a reconnaissance observer.

          We multiply 150 kW by 40 shells (one Grad salvo) = 6000 kW
          and it takes 40 lasers!
          One Grad battery - 4 cars: 6000 x 4 = 24000 kW! voila
          Someone out there suggested a lithium-ionistor bundle.

      If we accept, for example, 3 "shots" on the laser at a time, followed by a long charge and the presence of some overlap in the number of installations, then the remaining attacking targets can be finished off with air defense systems. Well, something like our "Shell". This is already cheaper than bringing down everything with conventional air defense systems.

        My friend told me that they got so good at shooting from a mortar that they could hang in the air for 10 minutes. When the last one fell, they already curled up

    The results of the introduction will be known for sure - Israel often uses an anti-missile system to protect the territory. Let's wait and see what they invented there.

    recognized as successful?
    The crash of the military helicopter "Atalef" (AS565) occurred on January 3, 2022 at night over the Mediterranean Sea opposite the Haifa coastal area of ​​Bat Galim.

    Is there any connection between these events?

    Such a weapon raises doubts: 1) it is not so easy to hit a projectile flying at great speed. 2) it will consume a lot of energy, they will go bankrupt by shooting at cheap Hassan. 3) misses the projectile, can hit the satellite. 4) the laser can somehow be reflected (like a ray of the Sun), refracted. Paint the projectile with mirror paint, white or come up with a special shell. 5) cut off the wires of power lines from which the laser is powered, and it will become useless.

      Getting in is no longer a problem.
      There is enough energy and it is quite cheap (per shot, relative to "Hasan")
      You can't reach space with that kind of power.
      Power lines are not needed.
