What is this “Iron Dome” of Israel that Protects from Air Strikes.
Hello everyone, this my is the second article about Conflict of Israel and Palestine. And While we see lots of news from internet I have noticed most of the people talked about a special system called Iron Dome.
I had a interest on to look after and check what is actually this is. And compare the alternative systems used in different countries as well.
The conflict of 2021, become much worse when the counter attack of Israel.
So Lets see what is Iron Dome
This is called Mobile, all weather air defense system and in a pet name called “Iron Dome” and belongs to Israel, developed by the Rafael Advance Defense System and Israel Aerospace Industries. The system is simply design to protect Populated areas of Israel, from the short-range Rockets and Missiles ranging from 4 kilo meters to approximately 70 kilometers.
The system initially started from year 2011 and currently the system has done lots of advancement form the beginning and planning to increase the range to be 250 kilometers.
From 1990, the Israel has a threat from surrounding, enemy countries like Lebanon, Syria and Jordan, with short range missiles and rocket fires. As in nearly 50 years of raging war with the nabour Arab countries. So Israel defined and developed a system to successfully protect the country with air strikes and shot down in the midair.
So in 2021 war with Palestine Jihad and Hamas, the iron dome tested and successful results distributed all over the world by showcasing lots of great abilities of the great nation of Israel.
How its work?
As per the Israel defense news, the iron dome can operate day and night and also regardless of the weather condition the system will operate as the same.
The system consists of battel management control unit, a radar system with tracking control and detection systems, firing unit of three vertical launchers with 20 missiles. The Missile used a proximity fuse to detonate the target in midair. This is a layered defense system that can mulitiple air strikes hit at once and eliminate multiple targets at once. And thankfully to the ability, this thousands of air strikes from Hamas and Palestine Jihad was eliminated and minimized 95 precent of all the air strikes. And also, the system measure the trajectory of the targeting missile and identify the drop location and choose which is which to be destroy.
According to the Israeli Defense Force, Iron Dome had shot down 85-90% of incoming rockets that were projected to land within populated areas by Wednesday of this week.
The importance of missile defense system was much reflected in this season and is a really good illustration of how to eliminate a critical threat from enemy, not just Israel, but most of the developed countries like United States, United Kingdom, Russia, China, France, German has developed their own air defense systems. So, we will see quick contrast of them as well. However, missile defense is no longer limited to interception of strategic nuclear weapons. The gradual development and proliferation of missile technology has blurred the line between the technologies for the interception of tactical missiles.
United States Sentinel Program is known as one of a best of the world.
Russia A-135 Anti Ballistic Missile Defense System
China Tested FJ ABM system
UK France Italy developed PAAMS system
As far as most of the countries keep the defense and security systems hidden and top secret, there must be much more complex systems than they say, so we will look after deeply in next article.
Even the counter strike from Israel is much Sevier for the Hamas And Plestine Jihad,. There are several news recorded all along. The major news services all around the world recorded this. The New York Times, BBC, Al-Jazeera recorded the same.
