UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Israeli defense company Rafael Advanced Defense System has demonstrated tests of its new Drone Dome system. This is a small laser that is mounted on an SUV. Its main task is the destruction of small drones.
In particular, the commercial shows that the beam gun is capable of burning even maneuvering drones and shoot down a swarm of three quadrocopters.
Earlier it became known that the Israeli army tested a small laser designed to intercept specific targets: balloons with burning tow or explosives launched by radicals from the Gaza Strip.
According to the military, in three weeks of testing, they shot down about 70 such balls. However, the laser still needs refinement.
