Israel Announces Anti-Missile Laser Breakthrough

Israel's Defense Ministry reported last week that it is developing breakthrough laser anti-missile systems to intercept drones, mortar shells and rockets, light aircraft and anti-tank missiles. The new systems will be cheaper and more effective than current solutions and complement Israel's Arrow (long-range), David's Sling (medium-range) and Iron Dome (short-range) missile defense systems. Engineers from the Defense Ministry's Weapons Development have been working on a classified laser missile defense project for the past few decades. Since 2009, the engineers have successfully been able to use algorithms to produce powerful focused laser beams and increase their effective range in various types of weather conditions. After the investment in the system according to one Defense Ministry source, "Every shot is very cheap, about one dollar per shot.”  Meanwhile, the price of launching a single Iron Dome interception missile is between $40,000 and $80,000.
