Rafael Advanced Defence Systems, the Israel Missile Defence Organization (IMDO), in the Directorate for Defence R&D of the Israel Ministry of Defence, and the IDF have completed a successful series of live-fire tests of the ‘C-Dome’ system - an advanced naval configuration of the Iron Dome air defence system. 

 

The ‘C-Dome’ was operated for the first time aboard the Sa’ar 6 corvette, Israeli Naval Ship (INS) Magen, against multiple advanced threats. Crew members of the INS Magen led the ‘C-Dome’ tests.

 

The test campaign consisted of a number of scenarios simulating advanced threats, including rockets, cruise missiles and UAVs. The ‘C-Dome’ demonstrated that it is capable of successfully intercepting such threats,” stated Rafael in a press release on Tuesday.

 

India and Israel have worked together in developing the ship-borne Long Range Surface-to-Air Missile (LR-SAM) and the ground-borne Medium Range Surface-to-Air Missile (MR-SAM). The former is being fitted in Indian Navy’s capital warships.

 

“This successful live-fire test is an important milestone and demonstrates the operational capability of the Israeli Navy to defend the strategic assets and vital interests of the State of Israel against current and evolving threats,” stated Rafael.

 

Head of  Rafael’s Naval Warfare Systems Directorate, Ran Tavor stated: “Rafael is proud to announce the completion of a successful series of tests of the naval configuration of the Iron Dome. This test marks the end of a process to develop and adapt the Iron Dome to naval platforms, according to the requirements outlined by the DDR&D and the IDF. The tests demonstrated Rafael’s advanced engineering and development capabilities, as well as the capability to successfully integrate complex systems."
