Rafael’s Drone Dome intercepts targets with new laser technology
Rafael has completed a demonstration of its Drone Dome C-UAS in which it intercepted several manoeuvring UAVs using its hard-kill laser beam director.
The C-UAS achieved a 100% success rate in all test scenarios.
The Drone Dome is fully operational and is already deployed around the world offering modular infrastructure with electronic jammers and sensors which can provide detection, full identification and neutralisation of UAV threats. It is in use for the protection of both military and high-risk civilian sites such as airports and border zones.
According to Rafael, the Drone Dome is unique in its capability to integrate laser technology with C4I functions to allow locking and hard-kill. This laser can be fitted to the ground station control vehicle.
