Rafael has sent a team to the Seoul Air Show to market Iron Dome. The
South Korean defense exhibition, which began on Oct. 18, was said to
comprise a major opportunity for Iron Dome amid interest by Seoul and other
militaries in East Asia.
"The company will feature some of its advanced solutions, including the
breakthrough, battle proven Iron Dome defense system against short-range
artillery rockets, the Python-5 full sphere air-to-air IR missile and air
defense missile, and Derby, a beyond visual range air-to-air and air defense
missile," Rafael said.
In August, Hamas and its militia allies fired nearly 200 missiles,
rockets and mortars into Israel. The two Iron Dome batteries were reported
to have conducted about 30 interceptions in what Rafael said marked 95
Executives said Iron Dome, already marketed in the United States, would
undergo improvements in 2012 in wake of
the Hamas mini-war. They said enhancements were planned to ensure that the
battery could counter missile and rocket salvos.
