Israel has been embroiled in the bloodiest conflict with Palestine in years. As a result of the conflict, a dramatic scene is unfolding in the skies of the Middle East. Hundreds of rockets have been fired from Palestine at Israel in retaliation for several days. However, Israel claims to have stopped most of these rockets. Israel has an air defense system called the Iron Dome to prevent rocket attacks.
The Israeli military claims it has thwarted 90 percent of rocket attacks through the Iron Dome. What is the Iron Dome, and how it acts as Israel’s defense system, the BBC Online. Iron Dome is a state-of-the-art defense system in the world. This system works especially well against short range threats.
Israel’s Raphael Advanced Defense Systems and Israel’s Aerospace Industries have built the Iron Dome. Israel has also received some assistance from the United States in building the Iron Dome.
The context of the construction of the Iron Dome is Israel’s 2006 war with the Lebanese armed group Hezbollah. During that war, Hezbollah fired thousands of rockets at Israel. Hezbollah rocket attacks have caused extensive damage to Israeli lives and property.
After that war with Hezbollah, Israel announced that they were going to build a new missile defense system. In 2011, Israel deployed the first Iron Dome.
There are three main aspects of the Iron Dome system. Radar system, control system, missile firing system. These three systems combine to form a strong defense system.
Radar system detects and tracks the rocket coming towards Israel. The control system then determines the potential ‘hit point’ of the incoming rocket. After determining the ‘hit point’, the control system directs the missile firing system. Missiles are fired from the missile firing system into the sky. The missile exploded near the rocket that flew into the sky. The rocket was destroyed in the sky. As a result, the rocket fired towards Israel was destroyed in the sky before it caused any damage.
The Iron Dome system is capable of working all day or night. In addition, this system is effective in any weather.
However, the weakness of the Iron Dome is emerging in the wake of rocket attacks from Gaza. It has been seen that the rocket is able to evade the defense of the Iron Dome. In this context, analysts say, these incidents of evading the Israeli defense system indicate that the Iron Dome also has limitations.
