Rafael will soon unveil Drone Dome: a new end-to-end defense solution designed to detect, identify, track, and neutralize drones. The system comprises of a radar and a jamming system. The system provides a solution for defense of strategic targets covering a radius of up to 3 km.

The Drone Dome System is an innovative end-to-end system designed to provide effective airspace defense against hostile drones (Micro and Nano UAVs) used by terrorists to perform aerial attacks, collect intelligence, and other intimidating activities. Drone Dome has 360° circular coverage and is designed to detect, track, and neutralize drones classified as threats flying in No-Fly zones. Drone Dome has a very fast response time, it causes minimal collateral interruptions to the surrounding urban environment, with maximum safety to friendly aircraft.

The Drone Dome System is operational under all weather condition, 24 hours a day.  First, the threat is detected and identified by the Radar and EO/IR sensors. The data is combined and correlated and alerts the operator of the hostile UAV. The system initiates either automatic interference operation, as per pre-defined rules in the C4I engine, or manual operation by the operator.  When the threat reaches the neutralization area, the hostile drone is neutralized by activation of directional GNSS and RF Inhibitor/Jammer system.

As part of Rafael’s strategy to forge partnerships with international companies, Rafael will place a joint stand with “Stefanini”, a Brazilian global provider of technology-based solutions. The two companies will display some of their advanced solutions at the LAAD SECURITY 2016 in Brazil.

Rafael’s systems displayed at the joint stand with Stefanini will include Wisdom Stone – an intelligence analysis support system for automatic analysis of enormous amounts of data and Cyber Dome – End-to-end holistic Cyber defense solution.
