Naval "Iron Dome" - IsraelDefense

by IsraelDefense

Naval "Iron Dome"
The new system is based on the combat-proven "Iron Dome" interceptor that has already achieved more than 1200 successful interceptions.

The Naval Point Defense System, C-DOME, is designed to effectively protect combat vessels against a large set of modern threats. C-Dome handles saturation attacks by engaging multiple targets simultaneously. Reaction time is very short and enables automatic and semi-automatic engagements.

The system will be presented at Euronaval, 27-31 October, 2014 in Paris, France, alongside a comprehensive suite of Rafael's naval vessel defense solutions for detection, tracking, interception and neutralization of a variety of threats.

C-Dome components include a multi-round launcher assembly loaded with vertically-launched canisterised interceptors. The launcher is installed under the ship deck.

C-Dome utilizes the ship’s own surveillance radar and does not require a dedicated Fire Control Radar. Weapon System Command and Control is seamlessly integrated with the ship’s combat management system, facilitating system operation.

C-Dome has a small footprint and can be integrated on small ships, including OPVs and small Corvettes.
