(Worthy News) – Israel’s defense technology company Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd has unveiled “Sea Breaker,” a 5th generation high-end precision-guided missile system designed to carry out surgical, pin-point strikes from distances of up to 300 km. “Sea Breaker is a naval and artillery unit force-multiplier, designed to overcome the modern warfare arena challenges,” Rafael said in a June 29 press statement.
The Sea Breaker has an advanced IIR (Imaging Infra-Red) seeker for identifying stationary or moving maritime and land targets and can be launched from a variety of naval platforms including missile boats, to corvettes and frigates.
In regard to Sea Breaker land operations, Rafael said “the land version is a central part of the shore defense, based on Rafael’s highly-mobile SPYDER launchers.” Moreover, Rafael said: “The battery architecture supports standalone launchers, or operation as an integrated solution, with a command and control Unit (CCU) and various sensors, based on customer requirements.”
Sea Breaker can fly at high subsonic speeds and has a “multi-directional, synchronized full sphere attack capability, based on predefined attack plans, according to waypoints, azimuth, impact angle and aim point selection, ensuring a high probability of mission success, with a 250 lb. penetration, blast, and fragmentation warhead, making a single hit effective enough to neutralize a frigate-sized ship,” Rafael said.
Although Sea Breaker uses Artificial Intelligence to perform “deep-learning and big data-based scene-matching, a unique combat-proven Rafael technology,” the system also supports real-time man-in-the-loop decision-making and tactical updates, Rafael said.
