Pentagon looks to Israel's 'Iron Dome' for new missile shield

(Worthy News) - American defense contractor Raytheon and Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, who worked together developing Israel’s Iron Dome—the highly-acclaimed mobile air defense system that has become critical to Israel’s national security—are now collaborating on an American prototype.

The U.S. version of the missile system would help protect U.S. forces in advanced combat positions around the world from a variety of threats including cruise missiles, rockets and UAV’s.

A 2015 trademark filing by Raytheon lists the “SkyHunter," described as a ground-based missile interceptor system with a guided missile that has electro-optic sensors and adjustable steering fins to track and destroy incoming enemy rockets, missiles, artillery and mortars. [ Source ]

  1. We sold the Iron Dome to Israel thinking it to be a lemon. Star Wars then was a flop, but on the right path. Quit canning these ideas if it don't work perfectly first time. Fix the glitch and get it done. Starting from scratch and the billions of dollars isn't the right course. If NASA took lead from these incoming snowflake who have zero ingenuity Hubble would be an orbiting relic
