Iron Dome in Action

From a mostly technical interest I've been examining some of the amateur footage from the action emanating out of the Gaza Strip in the last 24 hours. I have to say I'm very impressed with Israel's Iron Dome defensive system and its ability to take out a wide range of rockets and projectiles.

Here's some video from last night which illustrates this and also puts our November 5th celebrations into perspective. I would imagine the radar technology shares some of its DNA with the Phalanx system used on Royal Navy ships.

Back later.
