Looks like Israel is ripping off yet another defense weapon from the US Navy the Iron Dome was stolen from the Navy also. It's time for the Navy to start looking into this matter and see who is leaking all this info or at least try to catch the spies that is stealing it.


Probably Jonathan Pollard. But it does no good to catch all the Israeli spies/thieves because the US gov just lets them go back to Israel.

So my question is: Who's paying for this crap??? Is any of the billions that Israel receives from US taxpayers funding this? Or is it just all the free military tech that the US gives them? How does such a little country have such exotic weapons and weapons systems? Instead of making things that would make the lives of humans better, they always make tools for war and death.

A radar and laser beam system for detecting and destroying drones has been unveiled at the Paris Air Show by Israel's Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd.

The system, called Drone Dome, has a range of up to several miles and causes minimal interruptions to other systems in nearby urban areas, the company said during at the Paris Air Show.

"The threat posed by drones and packs of drones is one of the most complex challenges confronting us," reserve Brig. Gen. Meir Ben Shaya, manager of Rafael's Business Development, Air division, told Globes. "We have seen ISIS and other groups using them and the entire world is looking for a solution."

"We have taken the laser systems developed by Rafael and adapted them to cope with this threat, which is such a major challenge for defense systems worldwide."

Rafael says the system's radar identifies targets, while its laser system destroys them. Drone Dome also features a jamming system for disrupting communications between the drone and its operator.

Additional details of the system were not disclosed

The Americans and Israelis already had a joint laser defense program and proved it with MTHEL. They Israelis stopped funding it in 2011 or so though. Perhaps they took the research and proceeded with this new program??
