Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, the Israel Missile Defense Organization (IMDO), in the Directorate for Defense R&D of the Israel Ministry of Defense and the IDF have completed a successful series of live-fire tests of the C-DOME system – a naval configuration of the IRON DOME air defence system, Rafael writes in a press release. The C-DOME was operated for the first time aboard the Israeli Naval Ship (INS) SA’Ar 6 MAGEN corvette against multiple 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. According to Rafael, C-DOME is capable of successfully intercepting such threats.
