AUSA Global 2019: Raytheon looks to Americanise Iron Dome

27th March 2019 - 18:00 GMT | by Beth Maundrill in Huntsville


Following the US Army announcement that it will acquire two Iron Dome systems in an effort to fill a short-term need for an interim Indirect Fire Protection Capability, Raytheon is now focusing on the possible Americanisation of the system.

Under the agreement two batteries will be acquired which includes six launchers in each, two Elta multi-mission radars, 240 Tamir missiles and two BMS, according to Craig Baker, business development at Raytheon Missile Systems. These will be procured by 2020 for experimentation.

This has been agreed to but the government-to-government purchase is still ongoing. Rafael is taking the lead on negotiations.
