Iron Dome is a mobile air defense system in development by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems designed to intercept short-range rockets and artillery shells. The system was created as a defensive countermeasure to the rocket threat against Israel's civilian population on its northern and southern border, and was declared operational and initially deployed in the first quarter of 2011. It is designed tointercept very short-range threats up to 70 kilometers in all-weather situations. - Source: Wikipedia
