Israel has successfully tested a maritime missile interception system dubbed the Iron Dome of the Sea. The augmented defense system passed a live test three weeks ago when it shot down several short-range ballistic missiles from a moving vessel.

 

During the test short range rockets were fired from the shore; all of which were detected and classified as real threats by the Adir system, were targeted by the Tamir weapons system.

 

The Tamir Adir, named “Iron Dome of the Sea“, is based on the Iron Dome system and capabilities. Some algorithms and other parts of the system were changed in order to enable the use of the system in naval environment, which involves high dynamic changes, while the ship is moving or in place.
