Rafael's Air Defense system of systems (RAD-SOS) provides a complete solution ensuring tactical overmatch against a broad spectrum of air and missile threats. The RAD-SOS is based on a multi-layered concept that has been designed to provide optimum protection against all current and future airborne threats.

The layered concept consists of two separate double-tiered systems that cope effectively with two different types of threats. These separate systems are modular, yet provide maximum interoperability and connectivity.

 
The Iron Dome is the only dual mission system in the world that provides an effective defense solution for countering rockets, artillery & mortars (C-RAM) as well as aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, PGMs. The system is an effective system for countering C-RAM threats with ranges of up to 70 km and for VSHORAD protection (up to 10 km). The system operates in all weather conditions, including low clouds, rain, dust storms or fog.

Iron Dome can handle multiple threats simultaneously and efficiently. The system enables effective and selective handling of critical threats aimed at the defended zone to reduce unnecessary launches. The system uses a unique interceptor with a special warhead that detonates any target in the air within seconds.

If the estimated rocket trajectory poses a critical threat, a command is given within seconds and an interceptor is launched against the threat.
The interceptor receives trajectory updates from the BMC via uplink communication. The interceptor approaches the target and uses its radar seeker to acquire the target and guides the interceptor within passing distance. The target warhead is detonated over a neutral area, therefore reducing collateral damage to the protected area.
