What is an Iron Dome? How to Protect Israel the Iron dome? Recently we know about the Iron dome Air-defense system. It very important for a country because it can save a country from other country Rocket and missile Attacking. Iron Dome is an ultramodern Air-defense system. The Iron dome saving every moment of the country of Israel. It makes Israel more powerful and most successful. Because it protects every moment Israel from Palestine a rocket attack. Today we know about Iron Dome and how to protect a country from other country rocket and missile attacks.
What Is Iron Dome?
Iron Dome is a mobile all-weather Air defense system developed by Rafael Advanced Defense system and Israel Airspace industries by 2014. The Iron Dome Systems had intercepted over 1200 Rockets. The system is designed to intercept and destroy short-range rockets and the artillery shells fired from a distance of 4 kilometers to 70 kilometers away and whose trajectory would take them to an Israel-populated area.
History Of Iron Dome Production:
The first time was declared Israel make Iron dome to Protect his country from Missile and Rocket attack on 7 April 2011. The System successfully intercepted a BM 21 Grad launch from Gaza for the first time. On 10 March 2012, the Jerusalem Post reported that the system shot down 90% of Rocket Launch from Gaza that would have landed In populated areas.
At the same time, Israel announces it is possible to make it more powerful. The Dome range can increase and possibly 70 kilometers to 250 kilometers. In November 2012 official statement indicated that it had intercepted over 400 rockets. In 2014 the Iron Dome over intercepted 1200 plus rockets.
The system is a part of a multi-tiered missile defense system that Israel was continuing to develop in 2016 to protect the country from threats ranging from mortars to ICBMs and which include Arrow 2, Arrow 3, Iron Beam, Barak 8, and Devid Sling.
How Work Iron Dome Defense System?
To know how powerful the system is and how it works, we need to know the whole process.
Israel’s main radar system tracks the trajectory of enemy rockets for seconds. The information is then stored in their main data center. The system tracks the trajectory of various rockets in the sky and also knows where the rockets will land. It also tells where these rockets are being fired from. It only takes 2 to 3 seconds to collect all this data. If he sees that the rockets coming from the opposite direction will fall into space, then the Iron Dome releases them. Detect only those rockets that will increase the amount of damage. And simultaneously transmits anti-missile systems. This anti-missile destroys enemy rockets or missiles in the sky at a convenient angle. It is so effective that there are hundreds of Iron Domes set up all over Israel. These are protecting this country from Israel at every moment.
However, it cannot be said for sure that these are 100% effective. Because when Hamas started firing rockets at random, this system did not work to prevent all the rockets. As a result, many establishments, including Israeli airports, were damaged.
One Iron Dome is loaded with more than 20 missiles. It can load any amount in a few seconds if needed. This means that once the missile is exhausted, it can reload it in a matter of seconds to keep its system working.
Now let’s come to the cost. These iron domes are very expensive. One analysis shows that these domes cost about $80,000 to destroy each rocket in the sky. But rockets fired by Palestinians at Israel cost only $200 to $300.
The point is, what good is a website if it simply “blends in” with everything else out there? Their argument is that these low-cost rockets can do a lot of damage. Which is much less than anti-system.
Only Israel can show how far science can take a country. Because America has not yet built such a strong air defense system. So they bought these defense systems from Israel at a very ridiculous price.
